I've said it before, Suzi is a classy, tough presenter, and will mix it when required.
I watched SKY when the BBC weren't live, but, I thought they were dire compared to the BEEB, and Martin Brundle actually looked at bit of a saddo on occasion.
Oh, and no, I didn't pay to watch SKY!
Bit surprised no-one has mentioned Gary Anderson, for me he was the stand out presenter, absolutely fascinating.

Jack. I agree Gary Anderson was a great addition on the BBC.
Some of the crap on Sky was just embarrassing, in particular Georgie Thompson and Ant Davidson had me reaching for the remote control.

BBC BBC BBC!

For you, Skiddykid!

But yes I agree, Gary Anderson was v good. I had the benefit of being able to watch the best bits from both broadcasters, and I have to say that despite previously not enjoying Tabloid-Ted Kravitzs' style, his 'Ted's notebook' feature was usually pretty good.

Here is my dream-team

Gary Anderson for his technical features.
Tabloid-Ted Kravitz for his notebook feature.
Martin Brundle(of old), commentary.
David Coulthard, commentary.
Jake Humphrey, presenting, for his professionalism & his control of DC & EJ.
DC, co-presenter - he might be a little big-headed but he can be quite knowledgeable & entertaining.
EJ, co-presenter, he's a bit of a nob but an entertaining nob, especially when he's strapped to a bi-plane! hehehe
Lee McKenzie, pit lane/paddock reporter.
Anthony Davidson, technical analysis.
Suzi perry, simply for her efforts with MotoGP.

Nowhere would David Croft, Georgie Thompson, Damon Hill, Simon Lazenby, Craig Slater, Johnny Herbert nor Na

Sorry, but why not have Lee Mackenzie as main presenter, unless the beeb thinks she can't control EJ and DC. Perry is a bit too bubbly for me. About Monaco, Sky run rings around the BBC again. Only secured it for one year did they. Head of bbc sport needs to to take a long walk off a short plank, AGAIN! The woman is useless. You can bet when EJ and DC's, and Lee's contracts are up they will be throwing dosh at them to move over, and them the Beeb's F1 coverage will be done for.
