He is crap but the "stop the ****" campaign is a bit much. Lets face it F1 is pretty boring now so he does not have much to work with. Let Brundle do the analysis and tech stuff and get an entertaining commentator to talk to us over all the dull stuff.
The dull stuff includes the first two sessions of qualifying, interviews with Ecclestone, interviews with team owners, interviews with most of the drivers and most of the "race".
I used to love F1, now I only watch it through some mis-guided sense of loyalty in the hope that something unusual will happen eg. Button's pit stop at Imola or an overtaking manouver outside of the pits.
Why not have a proper qualifying session? One hour to lap as fast as you can - why change such a simple and exciting format?
Penalty points for engine failures - crap
Bring back manual gearchanges with a clutch pedal
No driver aids what so ever and less down force
Let 'em have the v10's but with skinny tyes, imagine all that beautiful oversteer
And dont give me all that "but its the pinacle of motorsport, cutting edge technology etc." - It is supposed to be a motor race to entertain the punter on TV or in the crowd.
Let them bend the rules and develope new technologies to get ahead of the game but then ban them and get 'em thinking again. They did it with ground effect skirts, launch control, turbo's etc. etc....
Maybe I should have put this in a rant thread instead. Sorry
