Best drive by anyone ever, Schumacher wanted that win so bad after his qualifying error.

What are ITV up to? The closest finish to a race all season and they take a break missing the last couple of laps, then take another beak just after :mad:

ITV sort it out :mad:

Chill out on the ad breaks guys.

Yeah they were badly timed but they have to fund the converge some how.
If anyone is to blame it's Bernie, lining his pockets with more ££££££££’s

If you don't complain they'll just do it again next time. Looks like they realised they ballsed up and are showing the last 3 laps now.

I agree partly but the timing was awful. They only had to wait 3 laps for a set of adverts, especially with such a thrilling finish. Even then another set of ads were shown just a minute or so after the last set.

Yes they do have to show ads, which I think is totally wrong for a live event but thats not the issue. Its not like it was an unexpected event they missed (Silverstone incursion by the mad priest) but a thrilling finish to a race. The production team should have the good sense and forethought not to need an ad break there.
