Re: No channel 4 highlights for 2019

I thought the contract stipulated that Sky must show highlights on Free To Air - even if it's on Pick? If not I guess that will be me done with F1 because I am not paying for Sky - and I don't think I'm alone either. You're not, trust me! I pay enough for my TV package as it is (without Movies or S...

I support Williams first and foremost, regardless of drivers. I started watching F1 in the early/mid 80's. My cousin was mad on F1 and supported Williams as he lived in Abingdon, only a few miles from the Williams factory in Didcot at the time. I started supporting Williams when Mansell started driv...
