Reaction from Silverstone to new F1 rights deal

The BBC and Sky Sports will broadcast Formula 1 in the UK between 2012 and 2018 under a new rights deal, as BBC Sport's Dan Roan reports.

Sky Sports will show every race, qualifying session and practice live, while BBC Sport will broadcast half the races live, as well as the qualifying and practice sessions from those races.

F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone says he wanted to keep the BBC involved, but the public will now get "better coverage".
