You may have seen today that ITV won the best sport event BAFTA for their coverage of last year’s Canadian Grand Prix. I’m unsure to the extent to which this is based on how exciting the event was, or how good their coverage was. I don’t remember the ITV crew doing anything spectacular at that Grand Prix compared to the others. What I can ask, however, is whether that was the best race of the year, or whether they chose it because it was the first race Lewis won, and it happened to be on at prime time on a Sunday evening?
My vote would instead go with either the European Grand Prix, for its battle to the end between Massa and Alonso, or the rain-soaked Japanese Grand Prix in Fuji.
