BBC have got 10 races and show ighlights in the daytime for all the other races so it's not all bad.
Got bored of it last year because the title was decided after 4 weeks. Looks like it is going to be much closer this year.

But the races were much more exicting than 2010.

2010 was close, yes, but terminally dull.

If every match was 0-0 in the Championship this season, it would be a very close season. But it wouldn't be an exciting one.

Sky's coverage is pretty damn good, with the dedicated channel it's far better than the BBC could ever achieve. Being able to watch P1, P2, P3 and qualifying gives you a better insight into how the cars are performing going into the race.

Watching the qualifying this morning, Kimi going out in Q1 wasn't really a surprise I thought, Massa was shocking, Alonso and Vettel struggled, the HRT's may as well stay at home.

That French guy and the Mercedes will be interesting to see how they get on, despite being a Hamilton "fan" I found myself wanting Schumacher to do well, be nice to see him win another race just for old times sake.

Alarm clock has been set for 4.20am which means I'll be awake around 10am to watch the re-run.

I like F1, but they're doing to F1 what they do to the Premier League, but on an even greater scale.

Over-hyped and over-analysed, to the detriment of the rest of motorsport, just like the Football League is belittled. Who knows it's also the World Sportscar opener today? No one, but I bet there are plenty people are watching replays on Sky F1 analysing how Kamui Kobayashi missed the apex of turn 14 a little and will hope not to do that tomorrow, and they're watching that instead.

I really hope they use the channel to cover other motor racing.

Given the name Sky Sports F1 I would doubt you will see anything other than F1 although it will be interesting to see what they air over the winter tho
