I only noticed "Gorsjean"
Check again then, Arius - it seems Mr. Gorsjean had a Prancing Horse at his disposal

Red Button feeds suffering from some break-up as well sadly.

The LNB I got to replace the 1 that failed last year ain't as good & does seem to suffer more in poor weather, Will have to look at getting a better 1 i guess.

Signal on SD channel starting to go now as well

Problem fixed for now.

Noticed a lot of snow build-up on the dish & LNB arm, Grabbed the mob out the kitchen & used it to clear the snow off my dish & got the signal back


Race control online isn't working.

Suzi Perry tweeted to say they're remixing the BBC titles in response to feedback about loud engine noises over The Chain:

Yay, well done the BBC! Thanks for listening...

A slightly 'Skeleton team' for FP1 with Lazenby not with anyone at all. No Damon, Brundle or Ant. Croft/Herbert in the box.

Seems there's still no 16:9 graphics feed for GP2.

Graphics have had a bit of a revamp though.

Font's a bit on the small side which I can see been an issue on SDTV & web streams.

Activate something passively?

To me. passive means something that is not active and something that uses a sensor and changes something else ain't passive.

Great commentary and reaction from Will in gp2
Some good and bad driving too

Did not have a problem with the changed graphics myself

Just spotted the first one - a bit odd how they promoted it on Facebook, but not Twitter.

It was James Allen.

I know it's not really broadcasting related but I find it a great shame that the comments on Lewis Hamilton's BBC column have already descended into snipes and arguments over tax:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/formula1/21885280

Given that Lewis is by no means the only [British] F1 driver to live in Monaco I have to wonder what it is about Lewis specifically that makes some people consistently single him out for criticism.

If you're going to attend a PR photoshoot at a children's hospital, expect people to point out that your tax arrangements mean children's hospitals in the UK miss out on money.
