THE DEVIL HIMSELF


djwillis1121

He's been the go to substitute for Brundle for the last few years. I wonder who will do that now, hopefully Button. I don't find him as annoying as a lot of people here seem to but I can't deny that Button would be a big improvement.


No_Influence_1035

Ant Davidson would be my guess now he is fully retired from racing.


nmaunder

Really enjoy Ant. More airtime please


r1char00

I’d love to see Ant take Brundle’s spot. He was fantastic on the WEC commentary last season. Really great to have takes from someone who had been competing in the same series just the season before. I know he’s not driven in F1 recently but has still been pretty involved with his time in the Mercedes sim.


NegotiationExternal1

Ant is wonderful, he’s warm and knowledgeable and just so excited to be there


r1char00

Yeah he’s really a pleasure to listen to.


Chirp08

Give me Ant and Button.


Conscious_Inside6021

How many times did he retire from racing? Seems like a lot lol


Eggplantosaur

Button in Japan was sooo good, calling the ideal strategy like that. It was a joy to watch


beelseboob

Button would be a great choice. My personal hope is on Sky having stolen Coulthard though.


A___99

Coulthard owns the company that produces Channel 4's F1 coverage so I would imagine it's very unlikely that he would move across


slimejumper

scot for a scot.


icantfindfree

Him and Nico show any recent ex drivers are great. I'd love to get Coulthard on there as well this season


TheOtherGlikbach

I can't stand Roseburg.


icantfindfree

I was never a fan of him and don't even get me started on his COVID shit, but his commentary is insane because he is able to call out strategies and details that no one else does


SnoozEBear

Pls, need more Scottish brogue on the broadcast.


Pure_Measurement_529

Wish they could have an increased rotation of former drivers. Unfortunately many of them are hired by other media companies


Lonyo

Or they are retired from F1 but do other racing.


acuet

Hopefully more Button.


[deleted]

[удалено]


notnorthwest

Well yes but Button was capable of winning a title. ^I'm^just^kidding


gteriatarka

Romo was capable too. It's just the rest of the team that wasn't lol being a Cowboys fan is a painful existence.


fowlerboi

They’ve removed the covid restrictions for next year so potentially Nico/Jenson hybrid


Imalandscaper

I’m personally in favor of Karun


ASlyWalrus

I think Karun's analysis is fantastic, his commentary is meh though. His voice and energy is more suited for the post-race analysis than live commentary.


campbellsimpson

Yep, similarly to Ted. I get the impression that, like me and lots of other people, they both often wait to be spoken to rather than speaking up of their own accord.


10mmSocket_10

Love Karun. Always give good insight.


djwillis1121

Oh yeah I forgot about Karun. He's good too


Rich_Energy_F1

Agreed the more Yensen the better. I've never been a fan of PDR but still sucks for him.


baldbarretto

As much as it would pain me to separate him from Jacques, Alex Brundle would ofc do well


According-2-Me

Alex’s commentary tone is so much like his father, just younger. I hope he steps up into F1


vvashabi

I like him, he gave us a lot of insider info that the rest was afraid to leak. Also he's often in contrary to most "brits are the best" sky pundits.


LsG133

He was also just straight up wrong a lot of the time


Wah-Wah43

I do think the Sky F1 team is too big. One of the things I enjoyed about the BBC/C4 coverage was the small group of consistent regular presenters. They built up more of a rapport.


Hjd4493

I used to love the ITV coverage for the same reason. People said that James Allen was boring but then BBC went beyond that with Jonathan Legard.


TheRedBull28

Do you mean Jonathan “problem” Legard?


Hjd4493

"Oh Mark Webber's gone right up there!'"


sungmai

“On a charge” Legard


NeiloMac

Up the hill, round the bend, battle is joined.


Briggykins

James Allen is still my favourite commentator, Murray aside of course. The right level of knowledge, enthusiasm, and professionalism. Legard was an absolute nightmare.


Hjd4493

You could feel Brundle getting annoyed at Legard without him even having to say anything to him lol. Also in case you didnt know. Steve, Jim and Louise are still with ITV for BTCC.


mtom17

If it wasn't for Legard we wouldn't have had that one wonderful season of Martin and DC commentary


no_name_left_to_give

James Allen was a lot of things but boring wasn't one of them.


Juicylucyfullofpoocy

Nothing wrong with having the technically sound guy to throw to for breaking news in the pit lane, like what Ted used to be…


stircrazed

The season's too long and there's coverage of practice sessions and the like. I'm more surprised Crofty doesn't get the odd weekend off.


Wah-Wah43

That's a fair point, but they could rotate 3 maybe 4 pundits around


BlueBloodLive

Random wondering... Crofty goes to (pretty much) every race, but is he in a commentary box for the races? So technically he goes to every race but doesn't actually get to see the race in person, would that be right? Cos when they show him in the build up he's usually stood in a cabin looking thing surrounded by screens.


A___99

Yes, he is always in the commentary box. So technically he watches off a screen like us. But I believe some tracks have commentary boxes that you can look out of so they could see part of the track (I am no expert but there's a video from Channel 4 behind the scenes of their commentators at the British GP this year and you can see the natural light from the window, and Coulthard looks out to see what the start is like as it's a better view than the TV camera to judge who has got the better start)


BlueBloodLive

Mad to think! At some point I'd just be like "I've done so many of these and never just sat back to watch and enjoy it, let me have Silverstone off so I can actually be a fan again!"


TSMKFail

Yeah Murray used to always go on about looking out the commentary box to see certain drivers go past.


MaxHammerTime

The channel 4 team is quality even with Coulthard’s cultism


beatupcar

I miss them doing the On The Marbles podcast. Lee McKenzie, Coulthard and Webber chatting together was great, they had some really good insights and Steve was actually great on it, funny and a bit nuts.


Rotorhead87

I grew up with David Hobbs, Bob Varsha, and Steve Matchet, on speed. Exactly the same crew every race for years, and I loved it.


fry_tag

More Anthony Davidson and Jenson Button please. I truly enjoy both of them whenever Brundle is off. Edit: *Jenson!


beelseboob

It’s telling that we all refer to them as “great when Brundle isn’t there”. Brundle truly is the GOAT of F1 colour commentators. He learnt great skills correcting the random garble of rubbish that sometimes came out of Murray Walker’s extreme excitement, and has continued to put them to great use correcting the bollocks that Crofty often talks. Plus, he’s driven more F1 cars than any other person on the planet, giving him an enormous breadth of knowledge of how these things drive, and compare to each other.


fry_tag

I also consider Brundle to be the least biased towards British drivers. Sometimes he can't help it, but most of the time, it's just the racer in him assessing situations pretty much from a neutral perspective.


Instantcurry

I find he's more biased for any younger driver than the more experienced ones. I love that he's excited about young talent


N4meIsTak3n

He talks his fair share of bullshit aswell... Some of it tho I have to admit is just inevitable trying to analyse a live sport in the heat of the moment, being excited yourself and trying to bring that to the viewer. Goes for everyone, I think the community (myself included) is often too harsh to the commentators little mistakes


CataclysmZA

Perhaps Sky can think about permanently replacing Damon Hill with Button while they are at it.

Ok-Try4295

I’m an American and I started watching in the 2018 season. It took me a long time to realize Crofty wasn’t saying Porter Ester when they went to him. So he’ll always be Porter Ester to me


No-Photograph3463

Makes sense. He is in the Peugeot Hypercar programme which gets proper serious this year, so lots of testing and racing for him this year.


MikeV27

RPM will be happy.


Le_Pistache

Nothing of value was lost. No interesting insight, personality of a dishwasher, his rapport with Crofty lacked some professionalism compared to his other peers, and he strikes me as having a massive chip on his shoulder about how his career went. Brundle, Rosberg, Button, and Davidson is a strong rotation. I wouldn't mind Chandhok here and there as well to see how he does but his current role suits him.

carnivoross

So Sky will do after remiving Herbert and di Resta ? Replace them or just Sky squad will be smaller ? And if they will be replaced who will be favourite ones to join ?


phantomswitchman

Full line up: Jenson Button, Nico Rosberg, Naomi Schiff, Martin Brundle, Damon Hill, Karun Chandhok, Anthony Davidson, Natalie Pinkham, Ted Kravitz, Danica Patrick, Simon Lazenby, David Croft and Rachel Brookes [https://twitter.com/samcooper_/status/1618293710554542081?t=GCDLm_44oMPLxqrvRxc-MQ&s=19](https://twitter.com/samcooper_/status/1618293710554542081?t=GCDLm_44oMPLxqrvRxc-MQ&s=19)


zaviex

Danica still only on American races right?


phantomswitchman

I'd assume so yeah


BeforeWSBprivate

Phew


Unusual-Ad-7819

Why do people hate Danica so much? She is still an Indycar race winner and I find her insights valuable. She is not as good as Brundle, Button or maybe even Rosberg, but I would happily listen to her any day over Herbert, Di Resta, Hill or Lazenby. And I'd much prefer her, or any other ex racing driver (e.g. Naomie Schiff), to do Comms in FP1 rather than Natalie Pinkham, who just feels like she is there to fill a quota, and doesn't seem comfortable.


r1char00

I don’t hate Patrick but I felt like she detracted from the coverage last year. They signed her for her name and to appeal to American fans, but she didn’t bring a lot of insight about the series. Pinks has been covering Motorsport since the 2000s and F1 specifically since 2012. She has a knowledge of the drivers and teams, she started out in the pit lane. She may not be a driver but I expect she knows a lot more about F1 than many people. They obviously have wanted to put more focus on female announcers (like bringing in Naomi Schiff), but she wouldn’t be there if she didn’t have a lot of experience. It doesn’t strike me as a quota thing at all.


Patient_Fruit_3355

Schiff has been super solid. She seems to have a very good rapport with Lewis specifically so I'm always excited to see those two on screen together. They did a wonderful segment that was largely about their blackness in motorsport back in the we race as one campaign and that was where I really noticed that she's quite a strong interviewer. Very good coverage for the most part and rarely talks rubbish like some of the old farts Sky keeps around.


Patient_Fruit_3355

I really disliked her the first couple times not for anything to do with her personality, I think her americanisms and willingness to correct others is admirable and charming. What I disliked is that she was often wrong and sometimes seemed to forget who the drivers are. Which is a little unforgivable when there are only 20 of them and it's your job to tell us about what they did for the last couple hours.


tree-huggers

Don't hate her, but she doesn't add a lot. Glad sky are getting rid of the dross. Herbert and Di Resta aren't very good. Get Rosberg and Button to do more races and l am happy.


listyraesder

It goes back to her first season where it was clear she knew shit about F1 - she didn’t need to be an expert, but she didn’t sound like she had even watched more than a couple of Grands Prix. She has clearly seen more F1 because last season she was able to make relevant conversation.


Pure_Measurement_529

So they just reduced the amount of people employed basically? I hope Brundle is doing better health wise this year and will be available as usual. Found it weird he missed many races, (unless its stated in the contract to miss a certain amount of races or he was dealing with health issues)


willowhawk

He’s just getting old.


-HJM

I guess Naomi and Danica were new hires last year, so they had more than usual throughout 2022 - it just wasn’t so noticeable since Rosberg was barred from entering the paddock and stuck to appearing via zoom.


TheRedBull28

Brundle usually misses some races so he can do some racing in another series. I think he tends to avoid some because of the travel too.


AnAmbiguousName

A couple of years ago now, I think just before the 2020 season, Brundle had said he was contracted for about 17 races per year, he is getting on in years and has had a few health issues so it's no surprise he wants to slow down on the travelling


KM-Racing1

Easy decision to switch to the other feed for Palmer and Hinch/Buxton. Palmer is hands down the best commentator and most neutral which is what commentators should be.

seattt

Wish Vettel would join them too. Dude's fucking brilliant at TV stuff.


KnightsOfCidona

Honestly wouldn't be surprised if we get Daniel doing a bit, close friends with one of the team (Pinks), great personality and will be at a loose end mostly during the weekend so why not. Even if he's planning on coming back in a race seat, it will set him up for post F1.


RaelaltRael

I would absolutely love to see/hear Daniel do the paddock interviews.


NightOwl412

Daniel just doesn't strike me as someone who is very knowledgable. So I'm not sure he'd have a lot to contribute. He has a great personality like you say, so maybe some role other than commentator.


joefraserhellraiser

Nah not yet, give the bloke some time off!


TheOxime

Is Nico allowed back in the paddock yet? Or still trying to phone it in from home to get around the vax rules?


phantomswitchman

He's allowed back this year, they've dropped the vaccine mandate

RPM is sprinting to his garage


OBWanTwoThree

Herbert and Di Resta for Rosberg? Yeah, that works for me

I'd rather have Button full time.

What a shame. Di Resta's expert commentary was fantastic. Very insightful, very current. Shame.


miamigrandprix

That's a shame. I always liked how frank he was, even though that made him no friends and Reddit hated his guts.

There's Frank and then there's bias.

Are they going to replace him with an instagram influencer too?

What am I missing? Why are they gone and why is everyone so happy?

Why are they gone? No one knows right now. Probably downsizing as the team was quite big. Why are people happy? The Reddit hive mind decided they were bad.

ChevyCheeseCake

Sucks, i liked his coverage


BattlestarGrammatica

Damn, I kinda liked DiResta. Button is good too, and I think Brundle is *really* good in big moments. Brundle and Crofty were aces on the last lap in Abu Dhabi in ‘21. DiResta had a different energy, which I can’t really put my finger on, but I enjoyed him.

Rosberg full time in the paddock? I like his no bullshit approachh


saksith

I don’t think anyone in the team will do all races as they have rotated more often in recent years - except for Crofty, somehow that guy has the energy and endurance to do the whole season.


KnightsOfCidona

It's actually mental he hasn't missed a race since they started. Lazenby I think had the same record until 2020.


IntrepidCapital6

PDR was never full time so idk why this would make his position full time... PDR and Rosberg even did the same races before when Brundle was off.


Neat_Petite

Is Rosberg allowed in the paddock now? Or will we have to endure more live broadcasts from his bedroom because his Mrs has banned him from using the dining room table?
