    I am not sure F1 can survive with out this faibled brand... They could go race a Le Mans or just sell the road cars for another 50+ years on reputation alone.

    Like Subaru with the WRX? Subaru ads in Canada still talk about WRC championships, even though Subaru pulled out 10 years ago.

    That's because they haven't really updated the WRX much in the last 10+ years, the drivetrain is basically unchanged. They are still selling the same rally car from 10 years ago.

    It seems some of the IMSA and WEC drivers are displeased over the Fuji race date change to accommodate Mr. Eyebrows.

    It does look bad when a race series makes an adjustment like that for a single driver/team. I expect repercussions.

    I wonder how many IMSA drivers commitments they will end up sacrificing to accommodate Freddy?

    Having never viewed the Sky Sports broadcast is this a step up or down for us US viewers?

    Sky is pretty good. That's what we get in Canada on TSN.

    I think it's good news. Sky (from when I watched it in the UK) had an entire F1 channel, so there's lots of content. If they broadcast all the practices and races and their complete warmup show, that'll be a Good Thing(tm)
