Adrian Sutil, do we think he deserves another chance? Personally I have my doubts about it. Could yet be a potential dust-up between himself and Hamilton. Was a bit surprised to be honest that he managed to get all the necessary visas sorted out, in particular for the USA.

Jules Bianchi nice to see him getting a seat somewhere on the grid.... money talking I wonder?

Really looking forward to the season opener now, the coverage of the winter testing by Sky was something we never had before and it helped heighten the anticipation a little more.

Roll on Paddy's weekend

For those who care BBC have confirmed there line up and dates.


Today has been a busy day for Formula One, as I mentioned earlier, Maria De Villota has joined the line-up at Atena 3 for this season. We have also seen the BBC launch their 2013 Formula One coverage. The big change for this year is that the corporation has a new presenter as Suzi Perry takes over from Jake Humphrey who has moved on to pastures new in the form of BT Vision.

Suzi is no stranger to the BBC having presented the channel's Moto GP coverage for 10 years. Suzy is the not the only new face to join the BBC F1 team as former Toyota F1 driver Allan McNish has joined the BBC 5 Live commentary team and will work alongside James Allen who joined the team last year.

Pitlane reporter, Lee McKenzie will once again cover events from up and down the pitlane, she will be joined full time by Formula One journalist and broadcaster Tom Clarkson, Meanwhile Ben Edwards and David Coulthard have been retained as the BBC's TV commentator's and former team owner Eddie Jordan will once again provide expert opinion and analysis alongside David Coulthard who will continue to carry out both role's of commentator and analyst.

The BBC also confirmed an expanded role for the technical correspondent Gary Anderson; he will provide technical analysis across the BBC's platform of TV, Radio and Online.

The BBC has also announced that Practice sessions for all their LIVE races will be shown on BBC 2.

Their first LIVE race will be the Chinese GrandPrix on 14th April.

BBC LIVE F1 Schedule for 2013:

14th April China
12th May Spain
9th June Canada
30th June Silverstone
21ST July TBC
25th August Belgium
8th September Italy
13th October Japan
27th October India
24th November Brazil


The BBC will continue to show extended highlight's of GrandPrix starting with next weekend's Australian GrandPrix the 2013 season opener.

In my opinion, Suzi is going to get on extremely well and will be well able for DC and EJ as she has been in a Motorsport environment and she is use to being in front of the camera.

For any of ye that have Sky's 'On Demand' service, there's an episode of F1 Retro there for download;
"Only season do date in which the world title has been awarded posthumously to Jochen Rindt that dominated until Monza on his lotus. Jack Brabham retired at the end of the season"

Now they were racers!!

Good 1st race of the season. Thought it was going to be a Vettel-lead St. Patricks day parade in Melbourne there for the first few laps. Those super-softs certainly mix it up, don't they?

Kinda feel that any race that Vettel doesn't win now will be a good one

It was a great race and I was worried about another vettel dominated season but its off to a very good start. Great seeing that lotus and Ferrari and fast which will make it very interesting.
I think if the cars are that good that this season will definitely come down to the best driver hence why vettel didnt win

Also very impressed by the force India pace, Sutel did a great job it was a pity the tires gave up at the end.

It's looking like another great season ahead.
