Hahaha, whos left for BBC then!! LOL!!

n the first major unveiling for the 2012 campaign, Sky Sports have revealed their team of pundits, presenters and commentators to broadcast every session from all the season's races next year.

In an eagerly-awaited announcement, the station has confirmed that the hugely popular David Croft will join forces with Martin Brundle in the commentary box for each of the 2012's races, with Brundle on air during every day of each grand prix, dividing his time between paddock, pitlane and commentary box. The flexibility means that former F1 driver Anthony Davidson will be reunited with Croft for commentary duties for each of the weekend's practice sessions.

"In Martin Brundle we have the outstanding F1 broadcaster - on the track and in broadcasting, he's proved it time and again," commented Sky Sports Executive Producer Martin Turner.

"Working alongside him, David Croft is a passionate, experienced commentator and Anthony Davidson can bring great technical knowledge to live practice sessions."

In support, both Natalie Pinkham and Ted Kravitz will scour the pitlane in search of the inside scoop on what's occurring, with Kravitz also co-presenting the magazine show that Sky Sports have also announced will be part of their package.

Ted's co-presenter on the magazine show will be Georgie Thompson, a familiar face to viewers of Sky Sports News, while another familiar face to Sky Sports viewers, Simon Lazenby, will host each grand prix weekend.

And last, but by no means least, broadcasting veteran Steve Rider will stage a series of big interviews with racing legends of the past and present for Sky Sports.

"Ted Kravitz has huge knowledge of the pitlane and paddock and he and Natalie Pinkham will get the information and access our viewers need," added Turner.

"And guiding us through the coverage we have the experience of Simon Lazenby and Georgie Thompson. Each has hosted major sports events, from the British Lions to the Ryder Cup - they have trust and respect."

I've been sitting on the fence with regards as to whether to get Sky or not for 2012, that line up may have just swung it. Sounds very promising.

All they needed to was bring Brundle and Kravitz and you could be sure the Sky coverage would be acceptable.

Negatives - Ant and Steve Rider
Positives - Brundle, Kravitz and Georgie Thomson :p

Why is Ant a bad point? :S

OK so he lied through his teeth about the video game but I like him.

I'd put ITV's awful 07 and 08 coverage out of my mind, but he's gonna bring it all back again

When he holds the mic it looks like he has a lame-ass rubbery, slightly prosthetic-looking hand that might have the wind blow anything out of it every time a breeze arrives - be on the lookout!

to be fair, a lot of that was at ITV's insistence.
he does know what he's on about as the guys been covering Motorsport for over 20 years.

According to that article, Steve Rider's not presenting...

It's a good line-up. Looking forward to it.

Well I would be too but I can't because I don't have and cannot afford Sky. Sky have @#$%& stolen my F1. It was my only vice!

Any news on the Virgin-trying-to-get-it-as-part-of-their-package news?
