BBC Monaco F1 coverage wins award
Just to keep you up to date with what's going on in the worlds of Formula 1 and the BBC, we thought it was worth letting you know that BBC Sport has won a second award for its Formula 1 coverage in 2009.
The Monaco show won in the face of stiff competition from both within the BBC and outside.

The other contenders were BBC Sport's 'Magic Monday' at Wimbledon, Channel 4's Cheltenham Gold Cup, the Ashes on Channel 5, the Isle of Man TT on ITV4 and Channel 4's coverage of the Volvo Ocean Race.
The judges praised the "genuinely accessible coverage of this A-list event" and singled out presenter Jake Humphrey as "a real find for the BBC".
They went on: "The brief at this hectic fixture was simple: 'live coverage from everywhere'...
"The roving reporters impressed with their interview coups, with Martin Brundle alone happening across Prince Michael of Kent, Jenson Button and his dad, plus former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell - even if Brundle did introduce her as Bernie Ecclestone's daughter.
"But the real scoop was an interview with the FIA president and the chance to break the news of an F1 agreement designed to draw the line under a season of political wrangling."
Broadcast magazine describes its awards as "one of the most hotly anticipated events in the industry's calendar, recognising and rewarding the UK's most groundbreaking and successful TV shows".
