    Yeah neither in particular.

    I’m essentially a tifosi, but was always hoping for ANYONE else to win during 2004.

    Ultimately it’s about national colours. I’ve had Webber for the last decade as my primary support. Alonso and Ferrari were the villains in 2010 when it looked they were going to beat Webber to the title.

    I was never really an Alonso fan massively before that either, I wanted Raikkonen to win in 05 (more coz it would be a cool comeback upset really, although I always like Kimi) and certainly went for Michael in 06.

    But nowadays I’m a massive Alonso/Ferrari fan and am desperately hoping he wins this year. He’s just been so amazing this year and shown how miles clear he is as the best in the world. It’s been 6 long years since he won a title and he deserves more, and Ferrari have waited 5 years. So I’m heavily going for Alonso this year (although that’s under the proviso that I consider Webber out of contention).

    Whilever there’s an Australian though, that’s where my primary support lies.

    Dream would clearly be Murray and Martin again, but current wise old Martin not green 90s Martin, and with Ted in the pitlane.

    As it is now, I’m very happy. Croft is better than Legard (easily) and Allen (slightly) and we get Ted. What you get used to is always best so it’s kind of impossible to speculate.

    However I think Buxton and Brundle long term, for multiple years/a decade plus into the future, would probably be the best way to go.

    Yeah good on Mike, I too hope it doesn’t harm his career too much, but I sense it will.

    I like how, on BBC radio, everyone’s loving James Allen now. How things have changed!

    Next thing we know Legard will be commentating on another platform and people will be lauding it. :P

    I’m in Australia and of course Prisoner Monkeys is right, Channel 10 are awful. But for everything except Qualii and race itself (Practice and all build-up) I have a stream of Sky. I never used to get the BBC stream, had only ever seen a couple of full BBC shows from 2010 which were great, so I appreciate it might be a difficult comparison between free uninterrupted BBC and expensive interrupted Sky.

    But in net terms, judging of its own accord, the Sky coverage is great and improving. Simon and Damon are getting over their teething problems, and Johnny and Ant are always great.

    Croft can tend to be a little overexuberant and annoying but he’s basically fine. No-one gets near Murray or Edwards as far as head commentary goes, but Croft is miles better than Legard and probably slightly better than Allen (although I did like him more than most!)

    I did love Martin and DC last year but Martin is clearly better as the analyst secondary not the lead.

    The real stuff, Quali and Race is what matters, and ‘we’ all collectively (British Sky watchers, and most English-speaking countries like Aus which get the Sky feed I think) have it sweet there. We get Martin and Ted, and when it comes down to it they are the two that matter. It doesn’t matter how good DC and Edwards (who surely slightly beats Croft) are. If you’ve got Martin and Ted everything is going to be OK. :D

    Oh and a BAR 001 of course. :D

    Probably a Maserati 250F, the greatest of all. For modern performance, an F-2002.

    But to hold in a box and admire visually, probably a late era 2000s Jordan (at the peak of its wonderfully loud yellow) or a Sauber C20 through 22.
