except he's driving for the EIRE team, not GB.
Two guys I never heard of for team GB though they do seem to be getting around 4th position a lot through practise. Surprised BBC didnt snatch this one off sky sports.
I'm wondering if Sky bid for it because they hate F1 due to the dismal failure that was F1PPV... which was kinda a stupid idea really when UK viewers had a FREE-TO-VIEW option already. Similar mistake was made by ITV-Digital when they tried to make profit from showing division 2 soccer matches on a PPV basis.
Personally I think A1 GP will only take off in the British Isles if Team GB or EIRE win a lot... just the same way people suddenly taken interest in cricket and rugby recently for those reasons.
I also think it will be something to keep my interest during F1s off-season, and it is a different enough format that I think comparisons with F1 are mostly unfair... despite certain newspapers being FULL of them today, but I have a gripe...
In a series which claims to be focussing on testing driver skill, why the hell do they have an overtake button?
Surely this defeats the whole ethos of what they are trying to create?
*sorry if this has been discussed already in other threads*
