I thought overall the BBC did an excellent job. Jake Humphrey was a far better host than Steve Rider, The DC-EJ combination was great fun to watch - god didn't those two really detest each other at the beginning of the season! And the lack of ad breaks was a pure joy! As a result of this, Brundle's hugely entertaining grid walks were much longer. I particularly enjoyed his ongoing battle with the female German TV girl :) Only downer really was Legard - as a commentator he was soooooooo dull.

Murray Walker should get an award for lifetime services to motor sport - if he hasn't already. OK, he's well into his 80s and not as sharp as in days gone, but we would all be lucky to do as well, or as much! Top man is Murray, and never, ever, idiotic. Or mindless. Just wanted to get that out! And I have enjoyed the BBC coverage very much!
