Look dudes....

Eddie Jordan is great TV. A few days ago you *****s where complaining that DC was too boring. EJ is on the opposite side of the coin. He brings controversy and humour to the show. And I am very glad hes getting more air time this year.

Ive been reading a lot of the extremely and a lot of negative stuff said about EJ. Let us not forget he started his own team from scratch, did well- won race(s) and finished well in the constructors championship. He bought fun to F1 in a 'sport' badly in need of character. I am sad so many are writing him off. We NEED more like him. As JFK once said 'See not what your country (or indeed sport) can do for you, but what you can do for your country' I am not saying this either because I am Irish.

Just because he was a team boss a long time ago and a good team boss a long, long, long time ago doesn't make him a good pundit. In fact, it just because he had some success that he loves himself to such a massive degree.

Leave the past, and the sad old man with the chucklesome hair implants, in the past.

I am surprised that the BBC has not decided to pander to those who's attention cannot be retained for more then ten seconds by adopting the principle that has ruined many other of their serious programmes.

Let's have Jake interrupting the race after ten laps by saying “but more of that later” and then going to an article about the manufacture of carbon fibre, before returning to the race for ten more laps.

Simples!

I for one am really pleased at this news.With all due respect to DC he never seemed able to give a balanced agruement on certain subjects because, as i see it, contact issues from Red Bull. Where as tells it as he sees it. Sometimes i might not agree but you cannot and should not dismiss his vast experience in F1 and his honest speaking.
