The BBC’s biggest mis-step this year in their otherwise excellent Formula 1 coverage is Jonathan Legard.
His commentary just doesn’t work: it’s repetitive, he frequently gets things wrong, and he’s generally just not entertaining. Martin Brundle seems to put up with him, but if I hear his tone right, doesn’t think he’s doing a great job either.
For my money, James Allen did a fantastic job with Brundle back on ITV, and I’d love to see (well, hear) him back on the F1 commentary.
But really, just about anyone other than Legard would be good. Put DC and Eddie with Brundle in the commentary box, see what happens?
Please, Aunty Beeb, lose Legard.
