Ant, Brundle and Rachel are the only sane voices in a cacophony echo chamber of Sky F1. Although Brundle's book is old, he can still see beyond the smokescreen the others try to create in the studio. He can call spade a spade.

I quite like Karun Chandhok too as he has encyclopaedic knowledge and seems to have all his information on hand.
When arguing with a fool, be sure the other person is not doing the same thing.

I never watch the grid walk. Entirely pointless and brings nothing to the race itself - the drivers and teams obviously give nothing away and the vacuous "celebrities" obviously are only there to be seen. Very few of the celebs know anything about motor racing in general or F1 in particular.

Most of the pre-race "show" is likewise pointless as it's either "features" or talking heads rehashing the same old same old. I just tend to turn on to the race a minute or so before the start time, watch the formation lap and then the race. Turn off after the podium, usually, sometimes immediately after the flag. The rest is all just pointless noise intended to fill time and create noise for the temporary "fans".
I have the same, back when sky sports started i was watching all the pre and after shows but then we had 16 races or so now we have much more races and you almost spend all weekend in front of tv. There is an hour before and after any session now while they have nothing to say.
I rather go to motorsport and see the technical photos and drawings instead of some interview with Brundle on the grid.
They need to freshen up horrible to watch teammates play stupid games together

I'm getting a bit tired of being told how Sky Glass and SkyQ customers can watch the highlights alongside the live action.

I'd rather watch the race than listen to a repetitive advert.

You should thank the lord you don't live in the USA then.

It seems like their television is about 20% programming and 80% advertising.
