this is another thing that irks me. the rules change so much and they do so much to the car that you never know what the driver is actually accomplishing. just seems like there are loads of great drivers (obviously) but its impossible for them to dominate unless the rules and car suit them that year.

swings and roundabouts really when you think of glove size, ring size, weight etc.

and ive never seen somebody win an f1 race then twenty minutes later 3 random judges decided they didnt actually win the race and awarded the win to the guy who came 7th


anyway im not so sure it will impact on boxing considering it has its own channel, sky still have to fill up schedules on friday and saturday nights

They have agreed that there will be no SBO shows therefore, unless F1 brings in lots more subscribers the cake maybe smaller for the other sports to share.
Hatton Promotions is the first casualty.

Will Sky boxing become Eddie Hearn, Ringside & the odd American show?

You don't need skysports inorder to get F1 though?
