The driver tracker is a great addition, and on the whole I think the BBC coverage is pretty good. But, after a season and a half, there’s still some things that really nark me:
Legard: OH MY GOD – I could literally talk all day about why this guy annoys me. Suffice to say I won’t, but the way that he descends into a directionless mumbling ramble every fifteen minutes or so is my most regular turn off, along with his complete lack of humour and chemistry with anyone and the “IT’S EXCITING SO I’M SHOUTING” voice.
Overdramatic flashbacks: “Here’s a recap of everything that has happened so far this season, again, oh wow don’t you think this was the most dramatic season ever?!?” do we really need this at the start of the every broadcast and then again half way through the build up? I’d imagine almost all viewers have been watching previous races.
Choice of music: Aside from my continued concern that Fleetwood Mac sounds kinda dated now (yeah, sue me), a lot of the choice of music for certain segments has been diabolical. What was up with the mega-cheesey guitar wanking during the segment with JH and MB in the helicopter? It made me feel a bit sick.
Apart from these, I think it’s a decent effort. EJ can sometimes sound a bit like he’s got a one track mind, and the discussion subjects are sometimes repetitive, but I think the trio works.
The forum is great as well, especially as Legard generally keeps away. Sorry but I just can’t stand him, he’s like the guy in the office who’s been there for ages but no one actually likes.
