F1 TV Issues – Is The Commentary Biased?

Apart from the usual F1 TV issues, should the sport’s official live stream have its own independent commentary feed? Preferably in multiple languages?

Okay, let’s get this straight. The Sky Sports F1 team is doing a fabulous job of presenting Formula 1. But are they too British-centric in their coverage to be the commentary feed on F1 TV, the sport’s official live stream? That said, Formula 1’s next move should be to establish their own independent commentary feeds, maybe in multiple languages? Of course, F1 TV first needs to have a glitch-free season before thinking of content localisation.

In this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we tell you why Ferrari are failing in the first-half of 2019, the billion dollar title battle in Formula 1, how Saudi Arabia could be the opening round of some future season and how Daniel Ricciardo’s failed reverse drive is symbolic of his move from Red Bull Racing to Renault. Tune in!
