Bit harsh, that wasnt aimed at you in anyway, it was aimed at the question asked, but its true, I've said before: Natalie Pinkham, Rachel Brookes, Lee Mckenzie et al don't have their own threads, but as soon as a woman of colour comes along she gets 40 pages.
That is because those 3 are employed as presenters or reporters, jobs they are all well experienced in. If any of them had the equivalent experience in their fields as Schiff does they would not be working for Sky.

Right now you have Schiff & Chadwick, both drivers that failed to reach even F3, employed as professional driver pundits and repeatedly thrown questions instead of the former F1 drivers stood beside them, a pretty evident agenda from Sky. At least Patrick has actually driven in top level racing. Albeit American racing...

If Sky had employed two uber-privileged failed male drivers that couldn't even reach F3 to act as professional driver pundits they would have been heavily slated and their presence questioned, but because they're uber-privileged female drivers people just clap along. Social conditioning works.

While Sky's prices have gone up and up every year, the quality of the coverage has dropped far more drastically. Oh the good old days of the BBC coverage, now that was worth watching!

I quite liked Jamie Chadwick on the Grid today. I wonder if she will draw the same amount of vitriol as Naomi seems to.
Can’t see why. She is actually credible and good, plus she doesn’t come across as an insufferable expert.

Billy was quick, even managed to win a race in single seaters after losing his legs.

Billy M is on a 'Cross the World', ininiative test TV programme where 'celebs' have to travel on little moneny across Europe.

He comes over as a nice normal guy (together with his sister) with a humble and good approach to life. He seems the same when he commentates. Hre also doesn't start sentences with the word 'look'...

Without his accident, he would have not been employed by Channel 4. He ticks boxes too.

Absolutely agree, nice lad but he doesn't have the confidence and charisma to be a TV presenter.

I don't think Alex Brundle got far as a drive either, but I rate him as a presenter. Sounds a lot like his dad.

Alex was a very accomplished sportscar driver. Like father, like son!
