Just to add how next level F1.com can be, we even got the footage of the delays that led to the race starting late.

 

(but I'm still glad we got shown a full race. Germany 2011 next, please)

 

It'll probably be something stupid like Abu Dhabi 2012

Bahrain 2014 it is

I still think that anything from 2013/14 onwards is too recent, but at least this is a decent choice

Meh, fine, but I mean who hasn't seen that race. Sure, maybe not the whole thing, but it's always featured in top 10 lists on their YouTube channel.

Is this a licensing thing? Come on, guys - pick better or at least older races.

licence shouldnt be a issue from 1981 onwards, but hey, the coronavirus will probably stay long enough for them to run out of watchable recent races  :lol:

We're not representative of F1 fans on the whole and I don't blame Liberty for trying to provide a hook for people who are interested in F1 because of Hamilton and Verstappen.

One issue from 1981 till about 1990 would be that while there were a lot of live broadcasts from the BBC, there weren't too many where the commentators stayed with the whole race. I'm sure other countries handled the broadcasts differently but F1 naturally wants English-language commentary.

They won't show old races because then everyone would understand how bad F1 is now :rotfl:

 

Imagine DTS new fans watching Canada 98 or Brazil 2003 :rotfl:

Corr, couldn't think of anything worse than re-watching a hybrid era Merc domination. 

 

Seen more than enough of that in my life already.

Wouldn't they have raw footage somewhere? Surely Walker/Hunt did the full commentaries anyway but just not all of it got shown?

They wouldn't have commentated for bits that the BBC weren't showing. It wasn't unknown for them to re-record commentary for later, non-live showings like for Monza 1990 (giving Murray a chance to positively identify Warwick's Lotus when he had his big scary crash (that he walked away from)).

 

A good example would be the 1981 Monaco Grand Prix, where the BBC had only just gone back to the race when Piquet crashed. That's why Murray's commentary says, "You've joined us at a tremendously dramatic moment."

I know they sometimes added commentary on for the highlights but I assumed that was just generally to tidy stuff up for the jumps. I remember I think it was at Argentina 1996 when Murray got Hakkinen and Coulthard mixed up for a bit, but in the highlights he got it right at the start but then reverted to getting it wrong again after they went back to the original commentary.

 

I might be wrong then but I always thought they commentated right through (in case stuff went in the highlights and because they'd be watching anyway so they might as well keep their vocal cords warmed up!), but could still refer to the BBC audience joining them in the live commentary but just not use it in the highlights. And also it could potentially mean a lot of after race work for the commentators if they missed out a lot of interesting stuff live.

 

Some races were only ever shown as highlights and often you can tell if commentary is genuinely live so I might try and test this out.

 

But also didn't other countries use the BBC commentary as well, and they would have had more live showings?
