There was one in the past where they had a cardboard cutout of Webber.

sorry for spammy posts but this is a big issue for us that needs attention

ten (un)sport(ing) are doing the same trick they tried on F1 with motogp.. though even more fucked up is they're showing Moto2 & Moto3 races LIVE on OneHD, but no Motogp. WHAT THE FUCK

all you twittery ****s keep the pressure on plz even if you don't follow motogp. Ten need to pull their finger out or everything will end up in SD & delayed

fuck, i knew kimi lost time behind grosjean, but the data really nails it home

The lap charts are certainly suggestive: After eight successive laps in the 1:38s and 1:39s, Raikkonen's four laps tucked up behind his team-mate before he finally overtook Grosjean on Lap 24 were timed at 1:39.9, 1:40.3, 1:40.1, and 1:42.0.

its not over yet. The end game is for ten to divest itself of the majority of it's sports programming and for you to sign up to foxtel.

but then again, it might just be a coincidence that the big pay tv players like lachlen murdoch bought into ten.

So east coasties still get SD but what a win for everyone else. (What it really says to me is that they refuse to bend on their Ten Sundays lineup, but consider One a dumping ground where they don't much care about the schedule.)

I think it has to do with the amount of spectrum they are allocated.

think of it as a multi lane road and each tv station is allocated a certain number of lanes. If you choose to broadcast in HD you take up more of your lanes. For example HD channels take up more of your space than an SD channel would. That then complicates matters - 2 SD channels or 1 HD channel? What will bring in the most revenue?

There is only limited amount of spectrum available and governments auction it.

I'm in D'laide so am in a better place than the visceral rage I endured toward the beginning of the broadcast, knowing the race was on lap seven when I was still watching promotional interviews for a film...

I am also stoked the black'n'gold cars were on the podium.

Will be interesting to see if One and Ten have the same ad breaks.
Last time Ten played the ads way to often.

rumour mill... webber to ferrari next year. http://www.planetf1.com/driver/18227...erez-stop-gap-

i said it, and a few other people said it, but it's a pretty strong possibility. how sweet would it be if ferrari's 2013 challenger was the business and webber was winning in red. fuck yeah.

way too early in the season to be a done deal imo though.

Webber would be a great fit at Ferrari. Alonso/Webber have a mutual respect so it would be a good battle between the two (ala Hamilton/Button). It is more than likely going to be Perez imo if Massa loses his seat.

perez might need another year at sauber to prove himself. i think it mostly comes down to domenicali needing another constructors championship and webber is his best bet of getting one next year.

if the scuderia have another woeful season next year domenicali might be jobseeking

another problem is ferrari usually like to have a #1 driver and a #bitch driver.. can't see webber taking any of that

imagine ferrari team radio if webber took alonso through eau rouge again

alonso: YOU MUST ALWAYS LEAVE A GAP
webber: calm down, eyebrows, it was only a little kiss of the ol' pirellis mate.

Alonso wouldn't have webber as a team mate, I don't think. the red are due back at the top though, so I'd like to see him go!

I've always liked Ferrari so I would have no issues supporting Webber in one. Some good points raised above though.

why not? they have a mutual respect for one another and even though alonso would prefer someone like massa who he can walk all over, i don't think it would bother him too much. alonso isn't fighting for the world championship atm, and i bet he'd rather have webber helping the team develop the car than massa, coz he'll have a championship car a lot sooner!

and also, really, although alonso has plenty of influence within the scuderia, he doesn't get to pick and choose his team mate, stefano does.

The interesting point from all this is that Riccardo could be in a championship winning car as early as 2013 so long as he keeps in front of the Frenchman

3-4 seconds a lap improvement apparently, gonna be a cracker season coz those kids go nuts.
