I thought it was a pretty good start. Simon Lazenby had great rapport with his rugby pundits and I expect that to grow as the season progresses. I liked the analytics sections – they seemed to go into more detail on the technology that the Beeb does too. Ted K looked a bit uncomfortable in a suit, but luckily Brundle came through with the gold neck chain. Still mystified as to why Georgie feels the need to wear so much makeup when she’s naturally very pretty. But her interview with Jenson was good.
The proof of the pudding will be in the live coverage of course.
Something bright and guitar-poppy with a dark lyrical bent like the Maccabees’ “Pelican”. Kasabian were dreary. And that lame, girly R&B the BBC seems to choose is so unsuited to F1.
Thanks GeeMac – looks like the quali will be shown delayed at 4pm local time on SS2, but at least the race is live!
I’ll watch with a bowl of mopani worms washed down with Pinotage (I’m lying about one of these items).
