I watched both BBC and Sky Sports post coverage of the Italian Grand Prix. What's going on with the BBC forum? it's so lame nowadays, it was very entertaining in the past but Suzi Perry destroyed it :(

She had no idea what's going on. She doesn't have enough confidence to ask the drivers a lot of questions. She let Jordan or Coulthard do the interviews.

As for the Sky coverage. It's amazing. Davidson is doing a great job with all the footage, etc. But Nathalie Pinkham is quite annoying, she asked Vettel "you are a nice guy, right? He had no idea what to say, waited for few seconds then replied "I try not be someone else".

Agree with all of that. Pinkham is definitely the weak link in the Sky coverage. Her questions are always weak, Lee McKenzie is miles better at the post-race interviews.

Davidson has really grown into an excellent pundit. I didn't like him a few years ago, it sounded like he was bitter at not being in F1 anymore when he first started. It was often 'I could do better than that'. I remember he even phoned Ferrari in 2009. :p Now though he's very insightful and really good with the SkyPad.

But what is Croft doing really? Tweeting? :lol: I wouldn't want to be in a closed room tweeting while my colleagues are giving their opinions, doing interviews. He should work on his image.

Lee is great actually. Very modest and humble in person.

OK I watched Sky Sports post race coverage of the Singapore GP. Rachel Brooks is lovely and amazing but her questions are very simple. She asked 3 drivers (Webber, Hamilton and Rosberg) the same question about pushing/saving the tyres.

She has to improve a little bit, but I like her accent :blush:

Doesn't her pieces go onto the sky sports news segments? She asks the simpler questions for the casuals most often. But she is a babe.

She's Sky Sports News but Natalie wasn't in Singapore apparently, so Rachel replaced her at SSF1.

Yeah, they weren't great. Although Natalie's questions usually aren't brilliant either.

Lee McKenzie is by far the best post-race interviewer of the BBC / Sky lot.

You mean Lee 'tell us what happened out there' McKenzie. :lol:

They all ask pretty much the same questions because there isn't really much else you can ask. If someone's had a crash or broken down all you can ask is, 'what happened?'. If they've finished the race you're bound to ask them how was it, were you satisfied with 7th or could you have done better etc etc.

Sky have used Susie Wolff as a pundit this weekend in the absence of Damon Hill.

She's been quite good actually. Hill is often a bit dull but Susie has been very articulate, informative and insightful.

The F1 Show: David Croft is joined by Formula 1 writers Kevin Eason, Michael Schmidt and Jonathan Noble to reflect on a compelling season of F1 racing in 2013.

What? Are you @Monsieur_F1? :p

MP & Silva secured the TV rights in the Middle East. It seems F1 is going back to AlJazeera Sports.
