Brundle: DC and I can get the job done

“For the races that I can't make, hopefully Karun will be there to step in along with the likes of Gary Paffett and hopefully people like Jackie Stewart as well, like we've had before – they're great to have their say, and it's just a different angle. It worked really well last year to get especially Karun and Gary and Paul di Resta as well – the drivers who have been out on-circuit – to let the audience know what it's really like. It's something that I enjoyed doing when I was a Friday driver, and that's really what got me started with the Radio 5 Live gang.

“I wouldn't have had the time to commit myself to the TV side at all [in 2011]. I still see commentating for me as a much longer-term thing; I just see it as fun at the moment – it's something that keeps me in contact with F1 and watching the young drivers coming up. I've got a great team of people to work with as well at 5 Live. I do it because I enjoy it.”

The F1 2011 World Championship campaign will rev into life in the desert kingdom of Bahrain on 13 March. The BBC will broadcast all of the action both on and off-track season-long via comprehensive coverage across TV, HD, radio, online, red button and mobile.

Give them a chance! - Unregistered

People really dont believe in giving them a chance before writing them off, do they? In nearly every article about this commentary pairing, there is a mention of screen tests and chemistry. The BBC have obviously tried them out and are happy with the results, surely we should hear them in action before criticising them.
