It's good to see a shared frustration on the issue of camera angles and advertising.

FOM handled today well, to their credit. They were much more on the ball with the direction than yesterday. They...

Sadly FOM coverage is a shadow of what it once was. The focus on advertising (real and CGI), sweeping tourist board-esque scenery shots and an utter lack of innovation points only one to thing: short...

Yes - I thought the same. TMC have always had angles positioned towards their sponsors and a few camera operators who always love to zoom in on them. Yet somehow it's less offensive than FOM's super...

Not as excellent as the brief shot of what looked like an Emirates Stewardess complete with logo behind her in the Paddock Club. Did anyone else spot this?

I regret watching the Indycar at Barber,...

FOM are as good as ever at finding the action on the track, but as I've said a few times their remit has clearly changed in recent years in terms of camera angles to focus on trackside advertising...

Finally shots of the Marussia on the World Feed in focus, including onboard. Perhaps the 'embargo' has now ended.

Partially agree - there are still lots of ex F1 Digital+ angles floating around, albeit used less frequently. It's just a case of you have to wade through endless helicopter/long angle shot to get to...

I felt exactly the same today.

The more time goes on, the more I remain utterly convinced that Bernie has re-focused FOM to produce more wide angle shots to maximise advertising revenue...

Interesting article, thank you. Seemed well researched to me and acknowledged the limited efforts that FOM are taking as well.

But obviously it does provide some criticism of FOM, I appreciate you...

Completely agree with all of that. But you could also argue that they shouldn't have had Piquet doing the interviews to protect the brand.

This was far better FOM direction than Austin, far fewer pit lane or paddock club shots. However, I am still astonished how long it took them to feed in Hamilton's error. Something that significant...

You aren't going to passionately argue on my behalf why 2002 wasn't very good? :D

I was told there would be pointless arguments on the internet!

It comes across as utterly amateur and unnecessary. At the start of the lap you get some wonderful interlacing artifacts thrown into the mix as well on the Emirates one.

Incredible, less than 2 minutes remaining and the BBC go off air for the Daily Politics, another live show. And it's not like the session was overrunning.
