I hope the Beeb does not make the mistake of not using Martin Brundle, the team needs input from an F1 Driver who can walk and talk at the same time, and one that will say what he thinks and not what the FIA thought police say should be said. I would say Murray & Martin would do the trick!!

They can rid themselves of everyone apart from one man.

They will be absolutely insane not to get Brundle on board.

In fact, they should be bending over backwards and begging him to join.

This sounds like internal politics and promoting those "in their own family" rather than establishing the best possible package.

They better not ruin what ITV has started, before ITV took over, u switched to the race 2 mins before the start, and switched off after the podium. ITV have taken the coverage so much further, fair enough the breaks are annoying, but the whole team that ITV have are really good, give you so much more information.

If the bbc are planning to wreck this then i would rather it stayed with ITV.

Please BBC if you read this, please jsut take the ITV team and put it on bbc.

No price is too high in getting rid of Allen!
Sorry to see Brundle go, but certainly fantastic to hear it's the end of Allen and Rider. Rider for being very partial to British drivers and Allen simply for being the most irretating voice on TV.
Thank you , Thank you, Thank you!

If it means having to sacrifice Brundle and have the satisfaction of seeing James allen dropped I'm all for it. Maybe they could use Davidson as a current expert - he was pretty good in the box at Hungary a couple of seasons ago. Or use all the Radio 5 Live team who are pretty good.

Thank goodness! I was dreading hearing that the inane, boring, biased BS of the ITV team would find lodgings in the BBC coverage.

James Allen is possibly the worst commentator on any sport. Anyone is an improvement from him.

Brundle was OK, but there's only so many times I could hear 'I crashed at that corner' before it went from being quaint, to a sorry reflection of his F1 'career'. His ex-driver insight was becoming a bit old hat in these modern times.

Kravitz and Goodman were just pointless.

I hope they use ex-drivers, but one's with more passion and character. Bring on Irvine and Herbert as roving pitlane reporters and take a leaf out of the MotoGP and WSB Bikes coverage
