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!

ABC used Ben/Wattie from F1 Digital+ back in 2002 for their broadcasts as they wound down their coverage. However, since I believe NBC are the exclusive rights holder in the USA who have their own...

They're seriously doing this?! Wow that's dreadful. The whole point of buying the Blu-Ray is to get pristine image quality.

Wouldn't be the first time they've done odd things though. The first Duke...

A thread on Autosport has also reminded me of what I believe is another CGI example on the start/finish straight: http://cl.ly/image/2v2A102e2B0V/Screen%20Shot%202014-10-04%20at%2019.09.29.png

I didn't detect any standards conversion, it is being recorded in 50i as usual on FOM's cameras.

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.

Incredibly refreshing to see camera angles zoomed on the cars once again, I couldn't see any long angles to cram CGI ads in. I just hope that this isn't because Monza doesn't lend itself to showing...

Low revenue for the cost, it's a niche market at best, unfortunately. The number of viewers on youtube full races rarely gets out of the hundreds.

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.

It's a deliberate strategy, clearly the deal with Rolex and the others now includes the CGI advertising as well as trackside. Bernie was trying to do this in the late 90s, but it didn't succeed due...

And depressingly this was the camera angle from FOM in 2002 for the same corner, http://imgur.com/PtU0ddf

Once upon a time their cameras were focused on the car, not the sponsorship.
