I do like Suzi, and I do think she will eventually get more relaxed in the role as it all seems a little bit forced at the minute. No different to how Jake, EJ and DC were back in 2009 though if I remember correctly14th April 2013, 19:19 at 7:19 pm #228161Joe PappParticipant

I really don’t remember 2009 such that I could comment on the trio’s harmony then, or lack thereof. Regardless, I hope you’re right and that she continues to develop into the role.
And just for the record, I’m not personally criticizing the woman or anything like that. I’m just expressing the opinion that I don’t find her to be a compelling F1 presenter in the current format/set-up.27th January 2014, 14:11 at 2:11 pm #228162BullfrogParticipant
Probably ought to start a new topic about 2014, but the good news is BBC have held on to Allan McNish. He’ll be doing radio commentary for 15 Grands Prix, and it sounds like he’ll be on TV as well.
Pretty poor that there’s no thanks or acknowledgement of Gary Anderson’s good work. I suspect “BBC Head Of F1 Ben Gallop” secretly hates F1 – every year he’s made some decision about presenters (I refuse to call them ‘talent’) that makes me think “why?! If only…”
But McNish is a superb communicator, and may be an improvement on Gary in terms of clarity, and knowledge of tactics and hybrid systems. We’ll see how much he knows about aero, but he can probably spot and report on what’s new for each race and session.27th January 2014, 17:55 at 5:55 pm #228163GeorgeParticipant
Sounds like they’ll have no technical analysis then, unless Tom Clarkson takes over that role.27th January 2014, 23:05 at 11:05 pm #228164R.J. O’ConnellParticipant
Who’s losing more personnel lately, BBC Sport or Lotus?
