I'm shocked.
I was under the impression that this forum was not interested in Formula One.

I am interested in Formula one. I stopped watching it when the BBC could only show every other race. I watched it from Nigel Mansells days.

That may come from selling the broadcast rights to lots of regional TV stations instead of just Sky.
This would increase the number of viewers and regenerate an interest that must surely have dwindled since BBC lost the full rights.
More public interest means more merchandising and greater track attendances which in turn will increase the advertising and sponsorship revenue, which is where the real money comes from.

It could not have happened to a nicer chap.

Hopefully Sky will not get the exclusivetivity it currently has and if we could get the British Grand Prix back to Btands Hatch I would be one happy follower.
