I would agree about the Soul-less factor, it has that “Sky” feeling (WOOO YEAH WE’RE GREAT!), somewhat inevitable though.
I particularly dislike the use of oversize microphones for the presenters advertising their channel too, it looks naff, and quite frankly must be a pain in the **** for them to hold all the time.
And the promised “uninterrupted coverage” doesn’t include practice sessions, they have 5 min breaks during live practice sessions.
Other than that, I think it’s fine so far, although getting used to hearing crofty and martin on sky is odd, and i don’t think Damon brings anything to the mix at all.
The Host “Simon” is rather bland and doesn’t have the charisma of Jake sadly.
