No, I meant the song, utterly lacking in any sort of drama... well, maybe it's quite appropriate then, but I can't see how Humphrey could have ever imagined it could get to No. 1, it's bland, which is about par for the course for Sky Sports theme music really.
No signature worth mentioning...
I thought it worked quite well for the BBC at the end of 2010.

Sky Sports F1 channel is now live on Sky Go....
Sky arriving on the 19th to fit the HD Box so we can get the F1 channel.
Very excited...but I wish it was still with the beeb! I don't really like the idea that people are going to miss out

Last night I got approval to link my iPad to the wireless at work
Sky Go added today - looks pretty good actually (ahem - just testing it boss!)
Good things come in three's - so which shall I get - Euromillions or National lottery ticket

He's not a diamond geezer, or called Joe!
Dreadful lip sync issues from studio feed on first show tonight though
Wondered if it was just our recording, but reports all over web from people watching it live, too...
Yeah, we noticed the lip-sync problem too, then a while later the audio stuttered and it went back to normal.
I did really enjoy the show, though. Nothing revolutionary but I'd be happy to watch them all season.
Looking forward to next week's show, if only to hopefully see inside Nige's house and garage!
So what are peoples thoughts on the Sky F1 channel so far? I watched the live program last Friday with Brundle and Damon Hill and thought it was alright, but (unsurprisingly admitedly) its been totally Skyified. I also noticed they did one of the pre show montage thingies like they do on the BBC, the couple of minutes of film before hand thats generally got a really good soundtrack and very stylised. BBC are spot on at these things, whereas the Sky one was basically some badly put together computer graphics.
I shall reserve judgement until the weekend (where i intend to watch BBC live and then record the Sky coverage to compare), but hope for the best.
Sonos & Apple TV -> Cyrus 8XPD (with PSX-R) -> Cyrus X Power -> Spendor A5
Sony Blu Ray & Sky HD & Apple TV -> Sony Surround Amp -> Jamo Surround Speaker Kit.
This new Caterham video is really cool too.
BBC's coverage is highlights only this weekend (as is Malaysia the weekend after) - both races are only live on Sky. I'm off to me mate's house to watch...
First live BBC race is China (13-15 April).
You know Prof, I had just assumed BBC would have the first race of the season! This is rubbish.
BBC - please rethink your strategy of "Dancing with this..", "Some random singing with that..." and all the other ITV clones, and give us back our F1!
They don't want it, it costs too much money. You can blame the government for the license fee freeze/reduction for that.
