BBC won't air F1 in high definition
The BBC's coverage of Formula 1 will not be available in high definition at launch, it has been revealed.

Director of BBC Sport Roger Mosey wrote on the BBC Sport Editors' blog that the corporation's F1 coverage "won't yet be available in HD" but added that "we'd very much like it to be".

Standard definition coverage of the 2009 season will kick off on BBC One with the Melbourne race on March 29. Mosey said that all qualifying and races will air live and uninterrupted on the channel with additional content, such as practices, made available online and via the red button.
