F1 » Brundle: I won't ask DC 'gormless questions'


The BBC's new lead F1 commentator Martin Brundle promises not to frustrate his 2011 microphone partner David Coulthard with 'gormless questions' - as some argue his predecessor Jonathan Legard might have done...

Lord Brundle speaks so the world must listen !
Full of himself as usual !
Legard might not have known as much as Brundle but at least he made a race sound exiting in the same vein as Murray Walker !
Brundle make me want to go to sleep Zzzzzz Feeling sleepy just talking about him Zzzzzzz

@ BEA...

Legard was hopeless! Everything he said just didnt seem natural and so so very forced. Very little in the way of banter between him and Brundle... by far the worst aspect of the BBC coverage.

Personally im surprised that they didnt promote Crofty from 5 LIVE. His Friday & Saturday practice sessions were a highlight and his banter with Ant Davidson was quality.

I love the way they add that Murray was a trained journalist. When he started you learnt as you went along. I don't think it's going to matter greatly that neither of them have done their NVQ lol. The only people worried about that are journalists who might not get a look in at the job. Same thing is being said in football with most of the pundits being ex-players as opposed to journo's from papers.
Legard was a bore imo, Brundle knows the "sport" inside out as does DC, i think they'll make a good team.
Good luck to them and can't wait for HD goodness to flow from the tv :)

Dour Coulthard will be abysmal, I'll be listening to Radio 5 Live from now on.

This is not about the viewers, it's about getting Brundle's best mate into the commentary box.

@mario, DC will be more biased than any other commentator in F1's history. He's still linked to Red Bull and Mercedes, and it showed during last year's BBC coverage whenever one of the RBR cars got involved in an incident. I specifically remember the Webber/Kovalainen crash where DC was arguing Kovy should have moved over and let him pass. I'm a Webber fan but even I'd agree that crash was Mark's fault and couldn't be blamed on anyone else!
