F1 » BBC confirms F1 2010 commentary line-up

The BBC has confirmed an unchanged commentary line-up for 2010, meaning Martin Brundle, David Coulthard and Jake Humphrey remain on-board - as do the less universally popular Jonathan Legard and Eddie Jordan...

Pity they don't take their MotoGP coverage as serious as the F1. How many people do they have covering it? Plus the podcasts, Friday night shows, etc
Yet the MotoGP gets 'red button' treatment, apart from the race which is on BBC2, whereas F1 is on BBC1.

I think that Coulthard replacing leggard to go alongside brundle would be a good move.
Hopefully by 2011 this could actually happen. It would be a good partnership!

I didn't have Brundle down as a pipe smoker (looks like a Churchwarden in the picture), though it does make him look thoughtful!!!

As regards 'The Team', get rid of Legend & bring in Toby Moody.

Thank you.

Johnathon Pierce had the same problem when he came over from radio to TV, spoke too loud and felt the need to speak every single second, two very different types of commentary are required for obvious reasons. Hopefully Legard will be better this time round but i doubt it. It took Pierce 2 or 3 seasons to adapt to tv commentating and he is still not one of my favourites.
Good news on the rest,even Jordan who like many others, i couldn't stand him for 2/3's of the season but then i warmed a little to him.
Agree on the comment about GP coverage too, if i am not watching live then the Sky+ will be on for the race commentary on Eurosport although i do like the pre-race GP interviews with Suzie

Shame Legard still has the gig, but glad the rest are around (even EJ).

Thought that Jake Humphrey's first season as anchor was much better than Jim Rosenthal's when ITV got F1 last time 'round, and both were better than Steve Rider ever was.

Also, before giving JH too much of a hard time, have a read of his blog entry entitled "An earpiece of the action" (seems I can't post a link, but ot's on his BBC F1 blog) and play/listen to the video - it makes it much easier to understand the job he does!

re - Steve Robinson. Great comments. Toby Moody is far to good for motogp. Toby's commentary on cars is outstanding. F1 would be an ideal stage for him. Having said all that the BBC's coverage last year was top drawer. Looking forward to more of the same.

I think legard is better than James Allen. I'll admit he did go on about button a little bit too much not as bad as James Allen who kept mentioning Michael Schumacher after he had retired. And then Allen named one of his kids Enzo. They should get Charlie Cox he would be better
