  1. Hi Guys, Am I the only one who notices that every single race turns into a 1 or 2 car event within a couple laps? Irregardless of the fact there are 20 cars on the track we rarely get to see more then 2-3 in any camera shot (except the start) and you never get to see more then a couple cars flying through the high speed corners like Turn 13 in Baku or swinging back and forth through a series of esses...anywhere???? They showed half a shot of them swinging through the swimming pool at lame can you get. They have no idea how to frame or compose a camera shot???? And when was the last time you saw a decent wide shot down a back straight with cars jockeying back and forth for position.... NEVER! You'll never see these shots with Sky Sports because they're a bunch of idiots with no imagination for camera shots. Then you have some dumb a## in the control room that thinks it's a great idea to zoom in and pan with every shot!!! EVERY SHOT??????? Are you effing kidding me? I dare you to tell me what corner or track the car is in when they use these stupid, blurry close up shots? And let's not forget the idiotic pit stops where they waste 30 seconds of air time on an F1 car going 30 mph down the pit lane. WTF? This all takes place while the other 19 cars (which you'll never get to see) are going 150+ mph out on the track, and let's not forget the moronic cut away shots of nameless strangers watching TV in the pits????? That's not racing that's bulls##t. And why do these mindless shots have to be full screen? Why can't they keep the racing action at full screen and drop these brainless cut a-ways into a corner of the screen??? This director is clearly a moron who has no idea how to cover an F1 race if he thinks a pit stop is more important then actual racing. God help that idiot. I don't ever want too see a pit stop unless the car is on fire or there's an explosion. I tuned in to watch racing not cars standing still. Do you hear me SKY SPORTS? Just when you think the coverage can't get anymore boring Sky Sports proves me wrong and Monaco is living proof of that. They obviously have no idea how to cover an F1 race and it's to our detriment. They might as well call these events the Mercedes Benz Show for all the coverage any other team ever gets. I've been an F1 fan since 1973 but I can' sit and watch a race anymore because they are the most boring affairs on television thanks to Sky Sports. I've lost interest in the sport because of the mindless and stupid directing and lack of imagination of camera shots. Who wants to sit and watch a 2 car race for 90 minutes with 30+ camera shots every lap???? Not me. I realize they are trying to make F1 appealing to a wider audience but all they're doing is driving serious fans away from the sport. Oh well... Thanks for listening.
