Hopefully that means no more Nico Rosberg.

What's wrong with Rosberg? I think overall he does a good job, especially with his insight into the hybrid tech demands on the driver.

Button is also really good though, hopefully this means no more Herbert ;)

I also have enjoyed Nico's work on the broadcasts. Nico and Lewis appear to have become comfortable and even amiable with each other after the rancor of the 2016 season. A lot of folks want to see some residual hatred between the two but, Nico is most often squarely in the Merc/Lewis camp in his sentiments.


Martin Brundle,Damon Hill always have worthwhile contributions. Johnny Herbert is probably the most lackluster commentator and even he is pretty decent. Paul di Resta is a good commentator even if he had the weakest career as a driver, but he does bring the knowledge of having driven most recently.

Though not part of the Sky Sports team David Coulthard does good work as the victory lane interviewer.

Aside from losing Crofty I don't think that the broadcast team could be improved much.

I love Button, always have. His personality is probably the closest to Ric we can get. He jokes a lot and isn't afraid of being honest. Sky just got much better with him joining. And his relationship with the likes of Martin is good too.

Now that we have a full year of Sky's broadcast (here in the States) I must say I am very impressed with the overall presentation. All though all of us in the US miss Matchett, Hobbs, and Buxton, Sky's telecast is simply way bigger, more people and the budget is massive compared to NBC sports. Button should be another great addition, we now have Brundle, Herbert, Hill, Rossberg, and Button all contributing to the team. The only thing I would change is get Brundle off of the grid walk, Buxton did ours before, and he was running all over, just put the mic in people's faces and asked questions (which is allowed on the grid). His energy was way more that Brundle's, half the time he seems to be wondering around lost and just wastes time.

F that, he still has a few good years in him and he looked very good at Shanghai.

What a waste.

My only problem with Sky is that Croft is somehow even more of a fool than Diffey. If you replaced Crofty, I'd be quite happy with the broadcast. Having what felt like a half hour of my life in practice wasted by him mispronouncing Giovinazzi's name and talking about the distance to the moon is something I could do without in the future.

Great news, I like Jenson he was pundit for Channel 4 (I think for the British GP) and seemed to do a good job, so does this mean he's not racing in the other two racing series either in the Super GT championship and or Wec?

Bring back Bob Varsha. Alain de Cadenet would also be a decent choice.

Too much to hope for that he's replacing Crofty, I'm guessing? :lol: Yeah, too much to hope for...

I'm somewhat surprised, considering how competetive he clearly still is, but I'm sure he'll do a good job and have some interesting things to say.

He also has his wedding to plan for, and judging from his Instagram account he is extremely active, hopscotching all over theworld, so hopefully he does it all.

I remember that broadcast, and ya I was saying who cares let's talk about F1 not this peripheral crap that does not matter, and they do that a lot.

Alain de Cadenet would be absolutely awesome, his renasonce man program is awesome.
