Tell us why ?


Many many reasons some of them are
1) They have commercials at time of pit stops !
2)they miss the race deciding incidents and we get to know about it by the commentator after the commercial
3)they discuss how tasty are the chicken nuggets !
4) When commentator starts to talk about a driver he forgets his hob of commenting about the race !
5)After hearing to the commentator sometimes you get the feeling "I shall mute and watch the race"
5)They skip formula 1 for tennis !!!!!
6)before start of the race they show the interviews of the drivers taken on Saturday the most frustrating thing about this is they repeat interviews concurrently two times


I dont like your dispaly pic :p, but I definitely agree with you point. ESS f1 coverage is totally disgusting, the worst person in it all is steve slater :<>:

Am I the only F1 fan in the world that likes Steve Slater?! :lol:

But their coverage does leave a lot to be desired.


Me too actually, i like him and Chris Goodwin combo :)

I don't think TV coverage should be made too in-depth. If there is too much on screen at once you won't know what to look at.

I still think we need some sort of graphic that lets us see how the drivers are adjusting their front wings. I've been looking for the last 2 seasons to try and see them do it. Maybe next year with the rear wing being adjustable (and probably more obvious) they'll do something.

Yay!!! That's made my day. Could make the last few races interesting if Legard knows he's out the door and that Brundle helped get rid of him. I await Legard finishing off the commentary in Abu Dhabi, then saying "And to finish off my reign as commentator here at the BBC" before punching Brundle in the face.

I'm certain that Brundle would do the same to Legard, if Legard were to punch him :lol:

Also, this is about the first time I've hoped the Daily Fail gets something right :lol:

The Daily Mail don't get sports stories wrong, its the fact they make unsubstantiated allegations about how immigrants and anyone remotely liberal ruin Britain which makes it a loathed and laughed at newspaper only taken seriously by lunatics.

On Legard, he is a rubbish commentator and worst of all cuts across Brundle. Brundle's as good a sports pundit/commentator as there is on British TV and he's being ruined by this idiot sitting next to him. Ben Edwards and Charlie Cox are my favoured options, though if they Murray Walker came back I'd have a smile like a kid in an advert for toothpaste.

to be honest I miss james allens hilarious factor on F1 commentary. Infact, If chandhock cant get a race seat, Id quite like him to commentate, very informative and a brain box. Also, I wish ted kravitz would get a more pivitol role in commentary, hes so underused!

What would people say to Eddie Irvine being a commentator??? I think honestly he could be another James Hunt. It sounds silly and I'll probably be laughed at for suggesting this, but I've always thought him quite eloquent. Him and Brundle could commentate on F1 like commentators do for tennis and cricket, which are always done superbly.

I honestly think one former driver in the commentary booth is enough.

That would be a waste of his talent. This guy needs to be at the wheel of a fast car next year.

Eddie Irvine might be entertaining, but if he has commentated earlier, i have not heard him

Jonathon Legard is a bit dull so a more observant and interesting replacement would be welcome.

I know Murray coming back is pretty much impossible, but how about they get him to commentate the big races (Melbourne, Monaco, Silverstone, Spa and Brazil as an example). My favourites for commentator would be Ben Edwards, David Croft or Martin Haven. As for Legard, offload him to football.
