The iconic McLaren and Williams of the 1980s would suggest otherwise. If a sponsor wants to truly catch the eye, surely they will want parts of the car painted in their corporate colours? This certainly worked for several tabacco companies in previous era.
…..but nowhere on Channel 4’s website is the Manor to be found. Are C.4 serious about F1? It does not look it from their website. Apart from a press release about the GP’s they will be covering – nada, zilch, b**** al. Apart from the absence of F1 coverage, what a horrible primitive website it is too. BBC is doing a far better job with a live news feed from Barcelona. I can see C.4 being a disaster, worse than ITV, for those of us who remember the horlicks they made of their coverage.
Yes. Disappointing. I’m happy to give the switch to C4 every chance, and even make allowances for a probable lack of innovation this year due to the lack of time they’ve had to prepare, but to not even get a website up and running is very discouraging.
