It would have given far more credence to your post if you HAD said something along the lines of "Nice to see it wasnt the usual procession" or similar.

Sorry, I will try and pick my words carefully even if it means the same thing.I have watched F1 this season and not seen alot of excitement.And being away in France I didnt see this race so was commenting from what I had seen so far.
At least you partly agree with me about some of F1!

of course you are correct Stanner, i often find myself in a situation whereby i have to avoid TV and radio for a day or two until i get to watch a race.

some may argue that F1 does involve balls, big ones at that,

Apologies again

Thanks BBC News.

Driving home to sit down and watch the Mexican GP and on the 10pm news without any warning or preamble they suddenly announce "Nico Rosberg has won the Mexican GP".

I should have realised they'd do it, but wanted to hear the news and they went straight from "general news" to "sports" without so much as taking a breath or saying that "sports" was coming next.

Surely someone on the BBC news team know that the GP is on later?

But of course it doesn't matter as it isn't important like Football, Rugby or Cricket is it?

No, it's only the one sport we totally whup the rest of the world at, instead of being the crap "also rans" they laugh at.
