So yesterday I grabbed the wrong end of the stick and wrote a piece about Sky in the UK, when it turned out the article I ws referring to had meant Sky Italia. Oops.
That's the mea culpa.
But it turns out I might not have been quite as wrong as I thought, if recent comments made by Bernie Ecclestone are anything to go by. And in this sport, Bernie's comments tend to end up shaping all of our lives.
Talking about the future of F1 broadcasting, Ecclestone said: "We will never move all countries to pay‑per‑view only though it wouldn't make any difference here in the UK," before adding that "Sky have done a super job ... the Beeb were sure we wouldn't be able to go anywhere else."
While not exactly an outright declaration that F1 would be moving over to Sky before the sharing contract expires in 2018, it's hardly a statement of confidence in the BBC's current efforts to provide highlights coverage of half the races on the 2012 calendar.
But the future could be brighter than we think. While Ecclestone isn't famed for his love of the internet, the recent comms deal with Tata Communications has created an infrastructure which could support online streaming of races, and FOM are said to be looking into online broadcast deals that would see the consumer (aka fan) pay FOM directly for access to Formula One coverage.
Don't expect to find races to download on iTunes in the next year or two, but this high speed sport is moving into the 21st century at long last. Even if it is at a glacial pace.
