To want Formula 1 back the way it was?

(34 Posts)

I want Eddie Jordan, David Coulthard and Jake Humprey. I want Martin Brundle doing the commentary and the pit walk.

All on the same channel.

Suzi perry is nice enough but I don't want her either.

YouTheCat Sun 06-Oct-13 15:47:03

Agreed.

Johnny5needsinput Sun 06-Oct-13 15:47:33

Yes. I agree. I do not like this new format. I liked it on the Beeb. Sunday afternoon, settle down, F1 on the tele. It was how it was. And I can't afford sky.

YouTheCat Sun 06-Oct-13 15:57:00

I think Suzy was better with the Superbikes really.

MiaowTheCat Sun 06-Oct-13 16:07:25

I want Murray, DC, Eddie and Martin and the dah-nah-nah-nah-na-na-na-nah music.

And no fucking "skypad" glorfied interactive whiteboard shit.

And I don't want Mark Webber to retire... waaaah

Johnny5needsinput Sun 06-Oct-13 16:09:30

I too want the dah-nah-nah-nah-na-na-na-nah music back.

Not bothered about Eddie Jordan. I do like Suzi perry though. Miss jake and Martin brundle.

I would like Murray back. And the dah-nah-nah-nah-na-na-na-nah music. I would love Seb Vettel to retire, or vanish.Hes too smug for my liking.

Ooh good we are all agreed. We got rid of Sky Sports. Too £££££ for the amount watched.

So miserable just watching highlights on the BBC and trying to not find out the result.

I'd like F1 back to some decent racing, the old one hour quali formula, refuelling & at least two different tyre manufactureres, no DRS............... & BBC doing it live every time.

Don't want much, do I?

PS Yes to Jake as well.

HilariousLotus Sun 06-Oct-13 18:05:45

I do miss Jake Humprey presenting which is why i now watch it on SKy because i really can't stand Suzi Perry but i think Eddie is hilarious and gets away with crazier questions than any other presenter would

Dc's commentary is really good and better than the Sky coverage

Well there is that magi. We don't want much do we?

If we could just get Lee instead of Suzie, I'd be happy. In fairness, the commentary teams on both channels are actually pretty damn good, the only one I preferred was the relaxed style of DC & Martin together.

I actually went off Jake by the end.

I wish I could make up my mind re the tyres. It's so exciting, and managing the tyres is a valid skill if not a very sexy one. But it's so impure, who knows what the fastest car/driver combo is. But it's just something I watch for fun, so I should get my head out of my arse and just enjoy the show. Meh, I go round in circles so much I get dizzy.

i dont miss jake he was becoming too smug imo

i watch on sky and do miss EJ and his clangers

becketts Sun 06-Oct-13 18:19:44

Im happy to have one tyre manufacturer because i never want the repeat of Indianapolis 05 ever again it was a complete farce and i think one of the main reasons F1 didn't/couldn't go back to America for a long time

I want Vettel to be given the credit deserved for winning four titles in a row at 26, I want Adrian Newey to continue to be the smartest man in F1 and get the credit he deserves, I want Hulkenberg to get a top drive and not be excluded because hes too heavy and i want Kimi to win the 2014 championship while eating a ice cream

I haven't watched F1 in years, but I enjoyed it most when I used to watch it on Eurosport, with John Watson and Alard Kaalf (sp) doing the commentary. After hearing how good they were I couldn't stand Murray Walker.

Ok yeah, this. Plus another couple of titles for Fernando.

Its just been boring this season. DH was listening on 5live or something similar this morning, and said even the commentator sounded a bit deflated after Vettel got round the first corner first... because everyone knew what was going to happen next.

The poor and seemingly random BBC coverage makes it hard to follow. I've pretty much given up.

GiveItYourBestShot Sun 06-Oct-13 20:02:40

Murray and James please. Yes, I'm a bit old. Oh, and Ayrton Senna.

Can we have Damon hill back then? smile

GiveItYourBestShot Sun 06-Oct-13 20:17:07

No, he's more handsome these days as a silver fox smile

koalacube Sun 06-Oct-13 20:17:49

Yes. I can't get interested at all these days.

You are not wrong Give. grin

HungryHorace Sun 06-Oct-13 20:20:13

Vj32, do you mean the actual race footage? AFAIK it's filmed by the FIA and this is what is bought by the TV channels.

Obviously it's difficult with highlights to make it fluid, but the BBC works with what it's given.

BloodshotDays Sun 06-Oct-13 20:24:41

I want next season to start now because, whilst I admire Vettel's talent, I'm bored now!! Take me back to 2010 when we had something like 5 drivers still in it till the final few races!!

I also want another title for JB and Kimi to give awkward interviews where he clearly doesn't give a damn every week!! Ooh... Ooh... That and some motherflipper to take me to Spa Francorschamps (sp?) sometime soon!
