Is it me or is she one of the worst hires Sky have made. Seems to offer very little in terms of insight into F1. Just seems to repeat back the question in a different way when asked for her opinion.

At Miami Danica Patrick was excellent

Never watched her programme on Monday night any good ?

I'm on the fence. Schiff seems enthusiastic which really comes across on screen. She may not have in depth knowledge but her enthusiasm already makes her easier to watch compared to other members of her team who often resort to banality and inane irrelevance. Not enough to make me watch the Monday show

As for Patrick, I completely disagree, she was woeful. Meandering, pointless and very limited F1 knowledge which really showed.

She made a lot of basic mistakes. She even managed to confuse Christian Horner with one of her clueless questions.

As for Sainz' face when she said "woooohoooo 2nd place, high five" after he got beaten by Charles in quali that is one of the best Basil Fawlty/ David Brent moments ever in F1. That moment should be a meme.

Actually quite interested what you thought she was good at? Apart from having nice legs.

Oh good, as if the Crofty thread isn't enough, we have to have one about Schiff now.

Shall we take the misogyny and racism posts, and the vehement denials as read and save having to read 80 pages of tripe

I didn't even think of it in that way but you're right. She's an attractive woman but I realised probably not the flavour that some like for obvious reasons.

Amazing how some peoples brains work. I also see a few decide what can and can’t be posted. Bit like Twitter people just can’t handle debate these days so just try to close it down and raise the race card.

Hasnt she been put on TV by the FIA and not employed by Sky? That's why she always goes and stands with the FIA dignitaries during the national anthem before the start of every race.

That might explain why she was wearing an F1 necklace today. Struck me as odd for a Sky pundit.

Bizarre how the Croft thread is 80+ pages but some people think criticism of Naomi is off limits for some reason.

Actually I was thinking today she is getting more confident in what she is doing and definitely improving.

I think her gender and ethnicity probably helped get her the job yes but if young girls see her on TV and it encourages them to get involved in motorsport then that has got to be good.

As a slightly self-defeating side-note, I thought she looked stunning in the black dress she was wearing today too smile

Completely agree and her approach seems very genuine which is a likeable quality. It was also noticeable after Monaco that she did push a couple of the interviewees to expand further on some of the subjects and then let them speak rather than interrupt. Not all the Sky team got that memo.

On the second point if more presenters look like her then I'll gladly take that over fat old white men smile

The "Crofty thread" is about a middle aged white guy and extends as you say to 80 pages.

I doubt this one will get to 80 posts.

Watching LeMans seems better than F1. Cars that can follow loads of overtaking. No back markers having to jump out of the way. Top drivers pit stops with refuelling what’s not to enjoy. Drivers that talk to the press and don’t sulk. Makes F1 look drab

And no woke tv presenters just decent petrolheads
From the Baku thread… would Naomi be who you’re referring to? Just curious.

We like her, a good addition to the coverage. Her interview with Hamilton at the beginning of the season was one of the most genuine I've seen in years.

You should try specsavers - presenters! The LeMans coverage has been brilliant and the racing makes F1 look very dull.

Still love to know what Danica Patrick was excellent at. She was the worst co-presenter they have had for awhile with painful lack of knowledge. Compared to her Naomi is Magnus Magnusson.

Thinking is the one thing they aren't, or they'd be able to see it's often usually themselves reducing the world they inhabit to their own warped vision, suffering and projecting the exact hateful delusions they race (heh) to stick on others.
