Kravitz a good reporter? I've found him to often make mistakes and lose track of things in races.I watch old Indycar footage on youtube and their pit reporters are much better than ours.Legard's not very good,he knows his stuff but he's no good at being the main man in the commentary box,no good at a dramatic moment.To be honest I can't see the BBC being less biased than ITV,the BBC will aim for new viewers and to get them they'll show Lewis incessantly,and ignore the loyal viewers like us who want fair and unbiased coverage.Also prepare for a lot of "Introduction to F1" stuff next year,to explain what happens in F1 to "New" viewers and patronise people like us.No adverts though,thank god...

No adverts - good!

But it can't be more biased than ITV, can it?

I hope not, I think it will be a liitle bit biased but not as much, my wish is for it to be not biased at all and for the commentaters to enjoy the race whatever happens, not only when lewis is winning.

The thing that annoys me is press conferences on ITV, they only show them if Lewis has won or is on the podium. If he won, then we will see his view but nowbody elses! Now I need Kimi to be on the poduim with Lewis just to see him in the Press Conference! I don't want that!

It will unfortunately be bias, but you have to admitt that it is natural for a British commentator to be supporting the British racer, if you go to italy you will find bias for the Ferraris and the same with all of the other teams and their representing nations.

But you will see alot less Bias because BBC tries to keep its bias down to a low, and also NO ADVERTS. :)

I hope they have a decent online feed, the ITV one was a surprise and worked realy good all year
its not the same for me watching it with the US SpeedTV commentary

Martin Brundle Finally Confirmed For 2009

Speaking at the Autocar Awards in London, Brundle confirmed his contract with the BBC :
I’m delighted to be able to tell you all that I’ll be joining the BBC next year. I’ve been commentating on F1 for the past dozen years and I briefly considered calling it a day, but in the end I decided to take up the BBC’s offer and I am now very excited about working for them next year. Martin Brundle.

Eddie Jordan a pundit? Surprising move but I like it,though I'm not pleased that Ted Kravitz still has a job.I heard Mckenzie as the pit reporter for radio 5 at Interlagos,she was genuinely good and better than the other pit reporters.The BBC took their time announcing this,glad they've eventually done so.

As they alrerady had Lee Mc., they needed one more. Ted was their choice I believe.
