Who’s going to replace Martin Brundle then? David Croft is almost certainly going to Sky, so who does that leave? Anthony Davidson or someone new? Would the BBC ever consider James Allen or Jonathon Legard?
As for Eddie Jordan, I really hope he stays. There doesn’t seems to be any suggestions that he’s going to Sky, so I hope he doesn’t just quit.
@VettelS Apparently the commentary will be shared – so whoever is commentating for Sky, the BBC gets as well.
@Magnificent-Geoffrey I’m not a fan of Eddie’s overly cynical approach at times. He is correct and very insightful when talking about the lower-grid teams; and about pay drivers and how the whole system works commercially. But I think a bit out of his depth when talking about the McLarens/Ferraris; and is very misleading then. I don’t like it when he talks as if he’s a technical genius either. BUT one thing I WILL miss from him is his no-holds-barred approach – when asking difficult questions, he goes in for the kill with no questions asked…
I really hope that Sky pair James Allen with Martin Brundle. You lot can say and think what you like, but that was some great commentary between those guys. Best I’ve ever heard it, Murray’s high pitched squel of a pig impressions just didnt do it for me, as much as I like the fella…!
The general consensus at the moment is that Kravitz is moving to Sky. However, Steve Rider has been interviewing drivers (possibly in preparation for next year), so he could be Sky’s pit-lane reporter and Kravitz stay with BBC after all.
