Channel 4 has taken over the terrestrial viewing for Formula 1 after BBC opted out of the contract.

I love F1 and am a bit dubious as to how successful this will be. However they have stated there will be no adverts during race time (thank god)

Yesterday they officially revealed the presenting team......

David Coulthard, Mark Webber, Alain Prost, Alex Zanardi, Susie Wolff, Karun Chandhok, Eddie Jordan and Bruno Senna; alongside seasoned live presenters and journalists Steve Jones, Ben Edwards and Lee McKenzie.

It also says Guy Martin will be making appearances

Good line up but I'll still be watching Crofty and Ted on Sky.

I will when in the UK Rich...but I don't get Sky when in Spain. Not sure whether Ch4 have the coverage for the second race though (which is when I am in Spain..)

They have only got the last 2 years from the BBC's original contract which was 5 years initially

Well they have also got Murray Walker

Additionally, one of the icons of motor sport on television, Murray Walker will give his unique insight into the world of F1® as he interviews some of the stars of the sport.

There will be a pre race show to watch on March 17th....

Remember to set the timer for March 17th ...the inaugral pre race show.

I think (hope) they pull out all the stops on this
