Channel 4 has revealed its line-up ahead of its first season covering Formula One, with Murray Walker, Mark Webber and Alain Prost amongst the 12-strong team named alongside the already confirmed David Coulthard.

Steve Jones, who is best known for presenting T4 and The X Factor USA during its first season, will act as the main anchor - taking over the role held by Suzi Perry, when the BBC had the UK terrestrial television rights. Coulthard will act as one of the experts alongside Jones, joined by the likes of Webber and Eddie Jordan, despite the latter's commitment to the new-look Top Gear BBC programme.

Other names recruited from the BBC, in addition to Coulthard and Jordan, include Ben Edwards, who will remain as the lead commentator, while Lee McKenzie also switches from to Channel 4 to continue as the pit lane reporter.

Former F1 drivers Karun Chandhok, Bruno Senna and Susie Wolff have been recruited as well, plus Walker and Lewis Hamilton's brother Nic.

Channel 4 will show ten of the season's 21 races live - with no advertising breaks - while the other 11 races will be covered as part of a comprehensive highlights package after each event.
