Making Promises

The BBC gets it. They know why people still love Formula 1. They know the importance of the heritage of the sport. They’ve demonstrated it perfectly in this clip that served as the introduction to the 2011 season.

I wonder why Formula 1 doesn’t know it themselves.

    Glorious, simply glorious. Paying homage to their old intro with Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” and Focus’ “Hocus Pocus”, the classic cars, and with Sean Bean growling about. Can’t think of a way to improve it.

  2. Heath says:

    Current F1 is too reliant on gimmicks to try and “spice up the racing”… KERS? Adjustable Wings? Degradable tires? All bandaids. They either need to stick to the same rules year after year or reduce the regulations to a minimum.

    Great spot from the BBC, though!
