Video – On Singapore GP and more

Does not happen too often that I find F1 related video contents on our local news website. But here is one from SCMP.com featuring Singapore GP and some men behind it as well some thoughts from ESPN Star Sport’s Steve Slater on Singapore GP and on F1 in general that include another gem (this time actually a funny one I think): “Is it going to be Formula One or Formula the other one ?” :-) .

ESPN Star Sports and F1 – How are they doing so far in 2009 ?

Back in September 2008 ESPN Star Sports revealed their new 5 year F1 broadcasting contract for 24 Asian markets. The good news is that we continue to have F1 coverage in this part of the world. I hoped (or it was my wishful thinking) that there will also be something in their new contract that will force them to raise their game. But after watching their Malaysian GP coverage all my hopes were dashed.

ESPN Star Sports and F1 – Will they raise their game, finally ?

The F1 fans in UK are wondering (and perhaps are also excited) about what will the switch from ITV to BBC bring to them. We here in Asia can only hope that five more years of the same perhaps will not be the same :-( . Because other than the fact that they at least show the F1 over here there is not much to like about ESPN Star Sports coverage of Formula One, at least not yet.

When it was announced early September that ESPN Star Sports renewed their Formula 1 broadcasting deal for another five years my feelings were mixed. On one hand I was happy that we will continue to have Formula 1 races live in this part of the world. On the other hand I freaked out – five more years of Steve Slater ?!? Can’t be happening …

ESPN Star Sports gets new F1 deal, we get five more years of Steve Slater’s commentary

According to ESPN Star website FOM has agreed a new 5 year deal with ESPN Star Sports for F1 television broadcasts in Asia. The new deal gives ESPN Start Sports exclusive rights in 24 Asian markets. The deal includes internet, radio and mobile phone broadcasts and television coverage. I do hope that somewhere in the contract is a demand from FOM specificaly banning Steve Slater from commenting. But I am afraid that is only wishful thinking and all of us watching Formula 1 in Asia will have to put up with this self-confessed ‘petrol-head’ for five more years.

What caught my eye however is that besides TV the deal includes internet, radio and mobile phone broadcasts. Does that mean that there is a chance we may get on ESPN Star website ITV like online feed ?
