    Mark Webber topping up his pension mate sucked in F1 most probably he will still do WEC.

    well by the looks of it BBC terminated their contract 3 years early. This combined with the fact that they will require us to get TV licence to watch iPlayer, I would say bye bye BBC. I love their programmes but I probably watch one program a week (Apprentice & TopGear) so paying £145 for that is bad bargain. Netflix, Prime atleast give you a whole bunch of stuff to choose from all for around £6

    Most of what I watch is BBC, not much else other than "The Last Leg" etc.

    But I do agree, the licence fee is too much, and worse still, I reckon that BBC4 and BBC2 programmes will eventually become pay-per-view and will add up to more than the licence fee is now.

    The Channel 4 line-up looks good, I might be watching that, BBC coverage was getting very tedious (or maybe F1 is anyway)

    Yes I hope they scrap it, its ridiculous that this tossers club full of pedophiles can extort money from the public. It's a rotten organisation just like parliament.

    someone quite aptly called new TV Licence as 'House Tax' as they are trying to force it down everyone's throat.

    The very fabric of society is at stake with this one - it is a public service broadcaster ?
    The question is - Do you still need a public service broadcaster ?

    ^ they can do all of that with BBC 1 and News 24, which wouldn't cost very much, so it could be subsidised by pay-per-view on BBC 2 & 3 & 4

    Doesn't look like Suzi Perry's in that picture? Alain Prost far right, one of my favourite F1 drivers of all time.

    OK, it's not his fault he was French.
