RTL in Germany has got the worst commentary ever.
Expert Christian Danner is very good, I think, but Heiko Waßer is a fanatic Nico Rosberg and Sebastian Vettel fan.
Then RTL have got a lot of commercial breaks.

But it gives only 2 legendary F1 commentators, I think.

I love the coverage we get here in the States on Speed. It is all the more surprising since 90% of the people here think NASCAR is the only form of motorsport.

i am live in london so i watch it in ITV but i really think their pre race anlysis is good,they focus on hamilton too much. they can focus on him as he is from britain but its too much. I used to watch it on star sports a few years ago and their show was much better.

Here in Germany we only have RTL or Premiere (Pay-Tv). I`m watching the races on RTL and it is true: The commentary is really bad!
Christian Danner, the expert and Co-Commentator, is good, but Heiko Wasser is horrible! :blink:
He`s a fan of the 5 german drivers and if the formula 1 would belong to him, there weren`t any other drivers! :blush:

As a UK resident, I need to endure the dreaded ITV coverage/Lewis Hamilton Show. Fingers crossed that the BBC do a much better job next year :thumbsup:
