Lots of people saying that Sky’s “soulless” coverage is actually a good thing. I have to disagree.
Of course there has to be a balance between entertainment and information, but I think the BBC got that balance perfect last year. Jake is not the most knowledgeable person in the paddock, but he’s an excellent presenter nevertheless.
DC is extremely knowledgeable, arguably more so than Damon. DC has an excellent understanding of the technical side of F1- I think better than Damon.
Eddie Jordan offers an insight from the perspective of a team owner, something which Sky definitely cannot reproduce.
Just because the BBC’s coverage is a bit light-hearted, that doesn’t mean it’s not informative. I haven’t found Sky’s coverage any more informative than the BBC’s. Sky seems to think that by filling it’s coverage with flashy graphics and movies, that will make it entertaining. It doesn’t- it’s just boring.
