Does he really talk like that.
What must DC think of him, as DC is beyond laid back.

DC would have had a major say on him getting the role smile

DC has been in & around the Paddock for almost 30 years, both as a competitor & in a journalistic capacity. Alex is new to the job, probably been working toward it for years & this is his big break, that brings pressure. DC will have been there, done that, been scrutinised in microscopic detail every fortnight for 15 (competitve) years, he now knows everyone & is probably wealthy enough to do as much or as little of anything as he wants. There's no pressure or real expectation on him, of course he's laid back! Two different Men at opposing ends of their lives & careers.
Alex is a young Guy, mere months into a new job under a huge spotlight, it's only the third race of the year, give him a fair crack of the Whip. For what it's worth, I quite like Alex, he's settling down nicely.

Still just as JARRING with his random and ABSOLUTELY unwarranted stress on words for no APPARRENT reason. Totally unnecessary and very unnatural commentary style. Trying too hard IMHO.

He's not new to commentary. If he was I might be able to accept his style short term but he must know.

I could barely understand Lawrence Barretto with his mask on at times this week.

Anyway I've found a way to see the live race with the Sky commentary (not much better but definitely better) so I'm out.

He's got worse, hope he reins it back a bit in future.

What! Ben Edwards was no benchmark at all. Alex J is at least as good as Ben Edwards, but personlly I think he is far better.

As an Equal Opportunties Employer it's quite right that Channel 4 has given Mike Smash the job.
