I think we're now halfway through the off-season (last race 14 Nov, next one Mar 13 - Jan 12 roughly in the middle) and I swear it doesn't seem right to be talking about Vettel's title defence already

Brundle and Coulthard should be good. It'll be an insightful commentary, from 2 experts, and probably more 'laid-back' than we've experienced. This works well in cricket, and I don't see why it can't work well for F1 too. And besides, anyone who prefers the 'play-by-play + analyst' style commentary still has the option of 5 Live.

Comparing cricket to F1 is quite poor mate. One is slow and one isn't...

I wasn't comparing the sporting aspect, but the commentary aspect. All sports are different, but I'm merely pointing out the fact that it works in other sports, and can work in F1.

I think it looks so diffrent because of the marlboro barcodes are missing above the visor.
