The excellent BBC F1 coverage has been improved and tweaked further with a new commentary line-up for both the television and radio coverage for 2011.
On the television side, Martin Brundle will take over the lead commentator role over the lacklustre Jonathan Legard. Joining Martin is his old-pal David Coulthard. It will be fascinating how the pair will get on explaining the on-track action this season.
As for Radio 5 Live, the excellent David Croft and Anthony Davidson double-act will remain but will be joined by a new pit-lane reporter Natalie Pinkham. The previous pit-lane reporter Holly Samos left last season to spend more time with her family. It’s going to be interesting how Natalie will fit in with Crofty and Little Ant.
And yet the biggest news is High Definition. Finally, Bernie Ecclestone and Formula One Management (FOM) have seen the full picture – pardon the pun – and has adopted the HD format for this year’s Formula One World Championship.
Both the BBC1 HD and BBC HD channels will display the High Definition coverage and it will definitely make a big difference in enjoying the racing action!
Roll on the first race at Bahrain on March 13th!
