Keep F1 on the BBC!
We want F1 to remain FREE to air on the BBC.
The new deal announced on 29th July 2011 has confirmed that SKY have won rights to show all F1 races LIVE for 2012 while the BBC can only broadcast 10 races (half) live, forcing true F1 fans to PAY Sky to watch the remaining half.
We want the UK Government to step in and declare this to be unfair and put pressure on Formula One Management to allow the BBC to show all races LIVE therefore giving viewers a choice as to what coverage to watch.
