I HAD a bit of a giggle reading Switched Off (Inbox, June).

I have been an F1 fan since the days when the motor was in the pointy end of the car and the sole coverage was reading and looking at sepia photos in Modern Motor. In 1976 Channel Nine showed a live coverage of the Japan GP, but its coverage waxed and waned until Channel 10 took over the reins.

For a reasonable fee, Foxtel provides a comprehensive live coverage of F1, V8 Supercars, World Endurance Championships, World Rally Championship and more. We have never had it so good.

How big is your couch, Peter? Ed
