Why Sky Sports F1 is better than the others...

This man right here. Ex Formula 1 driver Martin Brundle

Best Commentator ever.

i totally agree... But BBC's production team is the best in ALL sports imo (i mean the guys and gals behind the scenes, team in front of camera not so much)

Agreed Brundle is the best in those 1 on 1 inpromptu interviews.... Brundle is all Sky F1 has...

While I agree that Brundle is tops...I gotta admit i miss Jake Humphrey's style. The main Sky crew (damon hill, etc I don't even know their names) are just terrible IMO.

They need to sort it out and put the dream team back together. Humphreys, DC, Brundle. EJ is good for some laughs and to be the guy they get to do dumb shit.

On Sky, I do like Johnny Herbert. Of the main presenters he is probably my favorite besides Brundle. Also, Ted Kravitz is good.

Love how Brundle kept bumping into German Sky Tania, they must've have something going on.

Also, Brundle was on BBC twice this season, once in Bahrain BBC F1 Forum, and once when DC just started his grid walk on British GP. Brundle and DC are great friends, where I read somewhere, if itinerary permits, they will try to arrange to fly together to grand prixs.

Have any of you been watching "The F1 Show"? It's an hour long "magazine" type show Sky produces about the upcoming race. I have been finding it @ Piratebay or another place to get motorsports on da 'net. Look for it tomorrow.

I DO like Ted Kravitz as well. Forgot about him.

Sky is pretty good, an hour and a half of pre race coverage and about an hour of post race coverage is great, but it lacks the character of the BBC broadcast. The presenters can be a bit boring at times, but it's been much better lately since they added Johnny Herbert.

I still completely prefer the BBC broadcast though, even without Brundle/Kravitz now. Gary Anderson was a tremendous addition for them though, his technical analysis on the back of a napkin can put Sky's fancy enormous touchscreen TV thing to shame.
