Sky's opening title sequence for their F1 races.

http://www1.skysports.com/formula-1/new ... -Sports-F1

Obviously getting slated because its not the Chain - I read one comment somewhere that the Chain to F1 is like what the MOTD theme is too... well, MOTD. But what can you expect???

I love it, I can just imagine the last revs on the intro sequence leading into a very excitable Steve Ryder welcoming you to the XX round at YY place. Fits very well, and I hate Alastair Griffin.

Anyone catch the F1 Show last night? There was some sound issues causing people to have grievances but overall it got pretty good review with the exception of the five minutes Fenners did (peope who have only subscribed to Sky F1 and never Sky Sports before won't have a clue who Fenners is and he had no introduction...)

Some videos to check out if you never caught it;

The full intro (both channel intro and F1 Show intro) http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xpcvjx ... ening_auto

The Studios virtual 3D car http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xpcvhe ... d-car_auto

The Skypad (viewers of Monday Night Football in particular will know this is no new 'gimmick') http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xpcvqo ... creen_auto

A peek at the interactive options http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xpcvro ... ctive_auto

Also confirmed on the show they will be covering all GP2 and GP3 race weekends on Sky F1

I still haven't a clue who Fenners is and I'm not exactly anti-Sky Sports. But that segment was turdio.

I really liked it as overall it got the treatment I expected and said it would - taking the ludicrous over-analysis and intricate attention to detail they do for cup finals and MNF but for something not boring. Was fab <3

And Ted Kravitz is already better with the SkyPad than Andy Gray ever was, let alone bloody Neville! He's awesomesauce, good ol' Ted.

Well watched practise 2 and the number of adverts just ruined it.

Their front man is poor and seems to know nothing and asks silly questions.

Ms is looking like the ms of old.

As for the footage same as the bbc had.

Few new camera angles (helmet cam, undercar cam) but they're nothing to do with Sky. Practice itself was no different to what you used to get on the red button (same commentators too lul), just with adverts. Presenting team they've just tried (and failed) to copy the BBC's line up, but as above the presenter is poor and I don't think Damon is that comfortable on the mic.

Needs less Georgie Thompson airtime and more Natalie Pinkham.

Oh, and HRT need to stop wasting peoples hard earned money.

For me the whole show was like what we had on itv, it's not the same standard the bbc set.

They need to up their game, a silly pad is not going to make the show better.

F1 is not football and the show needs to be original not a copy of what they do for football.

Not many were impresses today put it that way.

And them 2 useless women can go straight away.

Well thats was interesting!

Great to see so many different teams in the mix! And good to see Red Bull down the grid. Thoroughly looking forward to race now.

I actually prefer the BBC Highlights for qualifying than I did their previous set up. Also a fan of Anderson in the pitlane, knows his stuff. Sky's coverage is still a joke.
