I can stomach Coulthard a lot more than the disaster that was Legard, but why not put David Croft in the hot seat? I wonder if Anthony Davidson will fill Coulthard's place alongside Jake Humpreys and Eddie Jordan? They definitely need somebody to bring some sanity when Jordan starts spouting rubbish.

You can't really slate it until you've heard it.

While I do not hold much hope for DC and expect him to be another Jonathan Palmer. I will wait until the first few races are done, then start judging.

Though nice to see Brundle still has the grid walks! They are worth a laugh :) (that will probably be more exciting than the race at Bahrain!).

Unless I am going blind, didn't see an update on the rest of the crew? Am I right in assuming Jake and EJ will be introducing the show?

How can DC be impartial, with his loyalities to Red Bull and Mercedes?

Brundle does a sterling job, but do we really want two ex-F1 drivers in there?

I'm sure there are better people for the job, but would Brundle work with them, or bully them out of the commentary box as well??

Does this kind of crionism exist at the BBC? This is just pathetic and will definitely turn off new viewers. Please help here, what is the attraction between 2 ex drivers talking about F1? Time will tell I guess....
