Light hearted yet Very Informative
Just listened to my first Podcast which covered the Bahrain GP and although only just over half hour was such a great chat between three People so in love with the Sport including a former World Champion. I’ve subscribed and won’t hesitate to encourage everyone to do the same. Brilliant.
I listen to all the f1 podcasts in English and this one is BY FAR THE BEST in my opinion. Broad knowledge, focused exuberance and unusual eloquence. Keep up the great work folks.
Mmmm.... the scripted world of sky takes over...
This is fine. It’s clean. It’s safe. But it’s pretending to be risky with uninteresting behind the scenes anecdotes. Come on TC - your better than this! No more fantastic incites from ‘Pinks’ about changing rooms and drinking a cup of wine... Did you get that approved by Sky Bosses first? Have a look at how ‘JG’ and crew do things on 5live podcast. They have a structure not a script and are free to express a view. I want to hear a lively discussion about F1 not how DH always got in the right side of his car. Love DH but really - is this part of your new Sky contract?? Tom worked better with Jake (see you can use names) who clearly saw this bore fest coming or is he too free for Sky execs. They had a good flow that felt natural. This comes over as owned by Sky (surely not with sky advert and sky presenters!). I gave it 2 stars as all these presenters are good in their own right at what they do, have done. This is not terrible, it’s just designed by a sky executive and adds nothing to what we know already. I hope it’s only a 1 year contract TC...
