Perhaps you should press the Red Button and select the CBeebies comentary, I’m sure you have better comentators on there.
Bernification, I think you’re correct. GPS is only accurate to a couple of meters, and the margins of this incident would mean GPS evidence alone could probably have been contested.
BTW, according to the FIA both the safety car and the medical cars have GPS.
Replace Legard with Anthony Davidson. Listening to the friday practice you get far better insight. Although I think Davidson should have a drive rather than sitting in the commentary box.
Martin now has the experience of being a full on comentator, and dosn’t neeed the support of a non driver, so having two ex drivers as comentators is not a risk for the BBC.
I find the comments generally fair and on topic. The conspiracy theorists can get a bit tedious, but everyone has a voice I suppose.
The comments can be quite a good read, and it’s good to get other people’s views on how they see races from their own perspective.
I like the sound of the sprint tyre.
If they removed the stupid rule abut starting on the tyre you qualified on, it could open up some interesting tactical decisions at the front of the grid.
If your on pole you might choose the sprint first to get the best run with clean air, but if eveyone behind you did the same might you choose the harder to ruin their runs on the sprint.
Also, as with the super soft, perfermance should probably be better on lower fuel loads at the end of the race. We didn’t see this in Canada because Webber was told to cruise, and Schumacher spent too long on them.
However it might have some issues in qualifying, as nearly every team would have to use the spint in each round. Therebye limiting the tyres left to use in the race. But then that would allow the slower cars more runs on the sprint in the race, making for closer racing.
