DiResta saying it’s great that max is faster than the Mercedes, I wonder what they did to upset him,
It's a fair comment. Good for the championship overall in that we might see a different winner.

PDR has ties to Merc (still does sim work?). If he's says anything that favours Lewis or Merc then he'll be accused of bias. Never gonna win - Channel 4 coverage is accused of bias with ex-RBR drivers as pundits.

I think you're mixing him up with (the much better) Anthony Davidson?

I don't think he did anything with Mercedes after DTM but is close to Zak and I believe McLaren reserve

I’ve seen his hertz gold plus account, his customer notes make a special mention that he will not accept Mercedeses as hire cars.

Yes his first link from the top of the stands was rather painful to listen to (volume right down if you do catch it)

That's what I was referring to. My ears are still ringing 24 hours later.

I’d have to say they need to sack off Damon as well. It’s painful listening to him in FP1.

I have to agree unfortunately. Very underrated driver, lovely guy, steeped in F1 history but dull as dishwater. Jenson is much better and Rosberg turned out to be better than the entire Sky team put together!

Jenson is making some howlers of mistakes. Cant we have someone who understands the rules on the team.

He is generally quite knowledgeable but seems rusty. The reason I thought Rosberg excelled was that he's clearly still very plugged in and talks to team members, his knowledge was bang up to date.

Not sure who else really fits that criteria. I'd quite like to hear Albon share some thoughts though he probably wouldn't be as open being under contract with RB and Williams.

These guys are so silly including Jenson.

You expect it from Croft but for the thousandth time- to move aside Checo has to be in front of Max! Something he has never achieved. This is real desperate commentary

Half the problem is they have so much airtime they just spout meaningless crap to fill the time.

It’s like “coming next Sebastian and Jenson have a chat” then after about a minute, “ you can see more in our xxxx program”

It’s desperation, they all have nothing to say.

Is it COVID related? They used to do a piece on the city they were in, and then show some sort of challenge (Kimi on the hovercraft, etc.)

Never a better statement this weekend, watch the sky team of idiots do the opposite
