I do think this weekend’s was their worst one yet. But that’s still miles and miles better than anything that’s gone before. Including Murray Walker.
And that’s saying something. Because I think the only reason they have struggled as much as they have been, is not because of their respective promotions, but because the amount of information they have to constantly process just to keep on top of who is where on the track fighting for what position has increased so much this year. We have had monsoon races that weren’t as crazy as the tamest of the dry races we’ve had this year.
Yes, they do make mistakes. But I think they are doing a really good job despite of them.
And actually, I think they would do a better job as well if the FOM would give control over the video feeds to a TV station. I don’t even care which one. But a TV station would to me seem to be better placed to decide what shots and angles better tell the story of what’s going on at any given time. Perhaps make it a TV station from a country that doesn’t have drivers on the grid, just to make sure there’s no accusations of unfair selection.
