While I like the idea of Gervais, I think his humour would be lost on the majority of F1′s audience due to losing things in translation and cultural differences in humour. If the FIA cracked down on Kimi and Seb for swearing, imagine the controversy after Gervais.. :p
Irvine and Atkinson are good mentions, I’d like to see more old drivers like Hakkinen, Barrichello, Capelli, Berger, drivers from other series like Kristensen, Loeb, Rossi. Celebs only work if they know something about F1, imo.
I have to say, the podium interviews have really grown on me.
