The pre race grid walk can be painful at times but I do miss the post race though.
Agreed.
In his interview Martin say he had to be dragged kicking and screaming into the booth. I think it still shows. Pod Cast is interesting quite honest.

The primary improvement in the coverage comes from Sky having multiple people present at the track. They are in a position to tell us about things we don't see on the standard coverage. In previous years, the commentators were simply telling us what we could see with our own eyes, because they were sitting in Atlanta, watching the same TV we were all watching.

Now, if Brundle would start interviewing engineers instead of celebrities during his grid walks, that would make those grid walks a lot less painful.

Interviews with engineers on the grid would be very very limited. They like to play the cards close, and members of other teams watch too.
