Brundle swaps BBC for Sky

Telegraph was wrong,” the Le Mans winner said at the time, “I didn't sign £1m Sky contract today. Calmly working through it, will end up doing what satisfies me most professionally.”

Croft has also so far denied that any kind of deal was in place for him to make the switch to Sky, although Twitter feeds from Interlagos suggest that the move is already in stone.

"David Croft last radio commentary for 5live coming up at 4pm. We have developed Crofty over 6 years. So who's next. Watch this space," was one comment, while F1 scribe Kevin Eason also suggested as much.

"A day of finals - last time for Martin Brundle's BBC gridwalk as he goes to Sky next year and last 5Live commentary for David Croft," he wrote, "They will be partners in the Sky Sports F1 commentary booth next season as the channel screens all 20 races live."

As crap as the whole Sky deal is for alot of people...could you really blame him for jumping ship? I think deep down Brundle would of stayed if BBC had all the live races on free to air. F1 is going to be so depressing for me next year.....*sigh

So Brundle has gone to Murdoch. The man that has been making fools of us. The man who has his tenticles amongst our politicians. The man who has been invading our privacy with impunity. We are in trouble when the good guys do nothing. Take a view if you detest Murdoch don't hook up with sky or anything from News Corporation.
