Ecclestone says HD F1 set for 2011

According to Autosport, Bernie Ecclestone says Formula 1 is likely to be broadcast in High Definition as early as next year.
"I think what's being produced at the moment is very, very good but I think we'll be moving to High Definition, probably next year," Ecclestone told the BBC.
With BBC1 HD launching before the end of this year we'll have the channel for it, but the grand prix coverage is all produced by F1 themselves and Ecclestone has promised HD before and not delivered.

All I can say is About Time.
For the past 2 years I have been able to watch FIA World Touring Cars and Formula 2 in Full HD. F1 is really behind. F1 stages its races in some of the most spectacular looking locations like Singapore this weekend and you can't see any of the deal. The helicopter shoots would have looked fantastic in HD.

You didn't by any chance find that article over at Cable Forum from me posting it, did you?

I certainly did - thanks. As the news came from Autocar, I linked to the source rather than Cable Forum.
