I found the last few races extremely frustrating to watch. On the left hand side of the screen, on the graphic, you see many cars withing DRS range and the tv director is not showing the fights and overtakes. Not even replays! Instead, we see some cruising Mercedes at the front or we follow a Ferrari lap after lap with nothing happening, just on his own, lapping around, probably saving rubber or trying not to spin.
Last race in China people called it a boring race with no overtaking. Well, it wasn't, there was overtaking, but we did not get to see it. In Baku the same. There were at least 2 double overtakes that were completely missed and a replay was never shown.
It's not like the last 2 races were full of excitement at the front that the midfield battles would not have added something to the show. I feel the quality of the tv directing has gone downhill, it's unacceptable and makes it very frustrating to watch.
Libery says they want a great 'show', but this is just presenting F1 as boring. What is this, do they have to show only Mercedes and Ferrari cars all race by contract? Or is it just pure incompetence? Seriously, how hard is it, that whenever a car is withing DRS range, just focus on that fight.
I feel the quality of tv directing is at an all time low, what do you guys think?
