teabagyokel I think the paywall is a disastrously stupid idea. (end of sentence).

also I'm interesting in the viewing figures for Q3 & post qualifying. how big the own goal was. because according to gary lineker the viewing figures for Sweden quarter final was 19.7m & it had a TV share of 88%
This was about the previous day, we had been running one of our most important golf tournaments of the year and had all been busy with that, So quite possibly the FA Cup final viewing figures were down a bit that year.
It is late at night, after all.
Some said it wouldn't be safe.
I think it will encourage mistakes: and mistakes make good racing.

Formula 1's owners sign sponsorship rights deal for in-play betting
"Alonso to moan on radio. 5-1. Bet nawwww!"
This can only end badly.
Seriously though, I can't see how this can be a good thing at all. It's asking for trouble and far too open to abuse.

One sports spending is another country's GDP e.g. Cayman Islands $2.507 billion. Now there's a match for you.

F1 should discuss reducing teams' data at races - Ross Brawn
There may be different reasons for the race being tight.
1) Ferrari got their mojo back.
2) Because of the state of play in the WDC Ferrari tried something different which would mean that Raikkonen would be sacrificed and they hoped that Vettel would get pole.
3) As a result Raikkonen had enough of an advantage with the tyres that he was into the first corner in the lead.
3) The Mercedes has not been optimised for being in dirty air so their tyres suffered; their leading driver normally runs a long way in the first stint which gives them a big advantage later in the race.
4) Mercedes realised that they were unlikely to be do a single stopper without Hamilton being vulnerable in the last few laps.
5) The virtual safety car was five laps too early but it was the only chance they had.
6) Raikkonen had a brilliant first stint when his tyres lasted as long as Mercedes would normally go.
All of this is, of course, just surmise as I want to be able to go to races which last three days. So there, Ross.
Take away Mercedes and there would be more cars with a chance to get wins. Money, money, money.
