To me, Alex's delivery just seems false or forced, it just doesn't seem natural, he seems (to me) to over-emphasise things. I am prepared to accept that this could be an age thing for me. My benchmark Murray Walker (who I grew up listening to) was about 30 years older than me, and although I don't know his age I presume I am the same generation as Ben Edwards. Alex is obviously significantly younger, and maybe will also appeal to the younger generation that the powers that be are trying to attract, but at the moment I'd like some sort of app that automatically mutes the sound when he is talking, but allows me to still hear David Coulthard, Mark Webber and Billy Monger*.
*But of course Billy is also a youngster and I don't have a problem with his delivery. I've obviously got some sort of personal problem with Alex...

When I've been overseas and watched in a foreign language I've managed quite well to understand the race. I don't need someone telling me that car a is faster than car b etc. I'm sure Alex is a fine person but as with Viva, I think he needs to tone it down.

I'd be perfectly happy to hear more from Billy (who I think is excellent value) and Webber (who seems to have disappeared).

I like Webber but he does suffer from the verbal diarrhea syndrome a lot. In terms of his delivery, not his knowledge I mean.

Mind you not all ex racing drivers are car silky tongued car salesman so I ought to cut them a bit of slack.

I do enjoy Webber’s straight talking and he really gels with DC
