Honda pulling out of F1 at the end of next year.

Red Bull and Alpha Tauri back to Renault? Not sure they've got much choice...

That's not good for Red Bull, who took a punt that the engines would get better after the Mclaren disaster. I suppose all the new cost saving rules make it hard for a new developer to make the strides needed.

Yep -- and they aren't actually leaving motor sport altogether.

It's pretty bad really, when you think about it.

Engine homogeny for 2023?

Calling uncle Gerhard... “Hello Gerhard, you know you’ve got those contacts with Audi? Well seeing they pulled out of DTM do you think they’d like to .....?” Etc

Sky going to a break and playing a promo telling us to watch the very event they've now taken a break from

Race against time to get Hulkenberg ready. Hopefully it's nothing too serious for Stroll health wise.

I often think they're pushing their luck taking breaks at all really. These aren't commercial channels surviving just on advertising income, they're channels you have to directly subscribe to. It just happens that people are conditioned to expect adverts on all non-BBC channels.

I would never ever pay for sky tv. They have almost single handedly ruined sport in this country.

Football maybe, but not "sport".

F1 is nothing to do with them, and cricket and rugby league have arguably been improved.

F1 only live on Sky (apart from British GP). Cricket only live on Sky. Darts only live on Sky. etc. etc.

Ah, you mean ruined for the viewer because you have to pay?

I thought you meant the actual sport, sorry.
Some of those are actually far better because of Sky

Doesn’t ITV4 and BBC do darts now? I wouldn’t know for sure as I’ve no interest in it but I feel I’ve had to I avoid it in the last year

Just a reminder that the race tomorrow starts earlier than normal at just after 1pm - that's due to needing a 4 hour window of daylight in which to run the race.

Christ. If you had a drinking game for every time they mention Johnny Herbert won this race in '99 you'd be on your back well before lights out.
