Ecclestone: Channel 5 an F1 option

Bernie Ecclestone has said that he would likely approach Channel 5 first if the BBC elects not to extend it deal to cover Formula 1. The BBC's current contract to broadcast grand prix racing finishes at the end of 2012, and there has been speculation that budget cuts at the company could make it unable to commit beyond then - or even exit its contract a year early. Ecclestone told The Sunday Telegraph that he hoped the BBC would choose to continue covering the sport - but admitted there were other options if it did not happen.
