Yeah, real shame for Kubica but by the looks of it things are not quite as bad as first expected. Surgery has gone well and he's looking to be fit by the end of the year, whether that be a bit hopeful or not, fair play to him. Could have been a whole lot worse.

According to the Guardian today, the BBC is considering dropping its F1 coverage already as it looks to save money. It's also considering dropping Wimbledon as well, apparently.

I will be seriously displeased if this goes ahead. The BBC's F1 coverage is ten fold as good as the shite ITV shoveled every race day. It really makes you wonder why you bother paying a TV license. You get inundated with a reel of programs about people dancing. Constantly, just people dancing in competitions, all day long. Sorry, except for when there's something about cooking on, or maybe the odd period drama.

The BBC should be ashamed of themselves. If it carries on like this (which it will due to financial constraints) it will be a shadow of its former self within around 5 years.

I commend them for their persistence with science and space programs but even then, this shouldn't be considered a luxury, it should be one of the corner stones of the channel.

Well, rant over. Still incredibly pissed off though.

Can there be any doubt let that Hamilton is the best driver in the world?

If he was in the Red Bull he'd be winning races by about 45 seconds every time. Nobody comes close.

Hope F1 goes to Sky. It's disgusting that a chunk of my TV license goes to paying for this garbage.

Hamilton had a good race but it was overshadowed by Mark Webber's for me, without a doubt. To come from 18th to gain a podium finish is madness and clearly takes considerable ability, glad to see he can still pull out a performance. I was getting a bit worried for him. The Alonso/Schumacher battle was great to watch too.

brilliant race yesterday, was great to see webber put in a brilliant drive, i love the guy and really hope he can challenge for the title again this year. excellent win from hamilton as well, some great overtaking and kept his cool well throughout.

i hope ferrari can get properly competitive soon though. mclaren are doing great (which i'm relieved about as they're my favourite team) but you've got to feel that the red bull car is so quick, and vettel so capable of frontrunning in it, that it'll take more than one team able to throw a spanner in the works to produce a truly competitive season. if ferrari could get their car up to where the mclarens are and start to win races here and there we could see an amazing season. otherwise i think red bull are too strong and with only one meaningful challenger they'll be able to mop up both championships quite easily.

renault's car is pretty handy as well, but they're obviously missing kubica terribly :(

not sure i'm much of a fan of DRS though, seems like webber was saying that all too often it produces scenarios where the leading car is basically a sitting duck and can get overtaken easily. reckon they'll introduce blue shells next.

I don't see ferrari not being competitive by monza tbh, it always happens the same way, one team pulls out an amazing innovation, and by the 4th or 5th race everyone else has a version of it. Ferrari always do well by this, seeing as they've the most money/manpower to pull it off. hell, the only reason mclaren are even in it this year is because they ditched their own exhaust design after pre season practice and went with a copy of red bull's.

Fair dues to hamilton for a great race, but for me the star of the show on sunday was webber, last season it would have been unimaginable to go from 18th to the podium. Goes to show that qualifying counts for nothing this season, i'd be surprised if we didn't see some drivers dropping out early in qualifying, in order to save softer tires for sunday.

Unfortunately I'm no help as I've never been but good shout by you on behalf of your Dad. How much does it cost for general admission anyway? With or without the full weekend added on? Always assumed it'd be quite expensive.

I'm disappointed at your lack of F1 chat since your Dad has obviously been into it for years. You going to be buying yourself one to go with him?

it's about 130 quid for the race day and 150 for the weekend so i've gone and booked 2 weekend tickets, better value for money i guess and the qualifying should be fun. i used to be well into F1, but it has faded over the years as the schumacher dominance killed it off, which is a shame as there are british world champions and it's got much more exciting in recent years. i'd love to go but the other ticket will be for my mum, reckon she would love it.
