still miffed with the treacherous bbc but they do have a good lineup for 2012. Brundel/coultard in the comm box was some sort of torture i didn't want to see repeated.
GA should be good for the tech side and a bit of banter with his clueless ex boss jordan should be a laugh.

James "the cokc" Allen and Jennie Gow are safely out of the way on Radio 5 as far as I'm concerned.

Thought I'd be following Brundle to Sky, but with Ben Edwards on board may well stick with the BBC.

Jennie Gow did a good job, I thought, on MotoGP in 2010, especially as she had to follow Suzy Perry. She was certainly a good deal sparkier than Matt Roberts! She'll do fine in the pitlane once she finds her feet and may well find herself back in vision the following year.

In fact, I'm guessing that this years BBC presenting line up will be fairly short term, and there'll be further reshuffling in 2013 when Coulthards contract is up and he follows Uncle Brundle to Sky.

meldrew...."jennie gow did a good job on MotoGP" WHAT!!!! She was absolutely hopeless!
Didn't know who was riding what, couldn't speak without a script, made dozens of mistakes.

Now they have Azi Farni who is absolutely excellent and because she knows her stuff appears to be liked by the riders in the same way Suzi was.

Have to agree with Jackbee. Jennie Gow was awful on Motogp coverage, so obviously out of her dept. I appreciate you have to start somewhere, but I just wonder sometimes how these people can keep getting jobs in front line media.
