I really enjoy Ted's work too. The Notebooks are the best media segment by a country mile in my opinion.

He’s a bit of a chuff sometimes, but hey most people are including all us lot. If he was more polished it’d just be bland. Is everything he says right? No. Do I agree with everything he says? No. He cares and when given the time is fun and interesting. I wouldn’t want him as an anchor or on a short highlights show, but he isn’t. He’s adding value to people who are choosing to watch practice or more than just the race.

I decided to give Sky a go, since this is the one chance I have got of listening to Brundle, whom I really like. My goodness, I thought that mr shouty next to him was going to have a fit during the opening laps. He was literally screaming down the mic. Someone should play it back to him - awful awful.

Back to Ben Edwards and DC next weekend.

Crofty is hell. I can feel my immune system trying to reject my brain every time he speaks.

I am sure he was decent on radio but I now realise this can't have been true.

Must admit, Crofty was set to 11 on the shouty scale in the opening laps, I'd actually say that's the worst I've heard him.

I did write something to that effect recently and then felt so bad saying it, I deleted it. But I will say it now - perhaps his voice has a timbre not suited to commentary unless he quietens down the volume. He seems to shout - you can hear the reverberation in the room. And in turn, he makes Martin Brundle get louder too. Ben Edwards, for instance, sounds excited and yet is subtle - it never feels overboard.

It was nice to see C4 reusing the Chain when they were going through the 70 year history during the quali coverage. And good to see Captain Tom Moore talking about his memories of the British GP in the pre race coverage

Apologies if this is deemed crude, but it was an actual observation by someone in my household (not a racing fan) while he was shouting away on TV... "Its like he is having sex, about to climax and doing his own play by play."

Does anyone have a mind enema? That's not an image I wanted.

Having sex with himself in my opinion.

I enjoyed the C4 coverage, it made a welcome change to Sky. I like that they have two former F1 drivers commentating and they can bounce off of each other. I feel that with Brundle he is sort of on his own sometimes. Back to Sky next weekend.

I rarely watch F1 nowadays, mainly because of the moronic Croft who I loath far more than any other previous f1 comms man, Legard included. Allen was getting close with the shouting, but Croft is simply ridiculous, yet as usual in these circles he is drop fed platitudes by his employers who seemingly love him and by a small number of fans who think he is great. He is the pit quite honestly.

Edwards was also being a bit shouty, clearly under direction to make it all perhaps seem more exciting than it really is. But the way he DC and Weber related to each other was great, Webber is funny, as is DC, and it just works.

I always feel Brunders is simply putting up with Croft, there is clearly no chemistry there and if I was him I would be quietly pushing Sky to get rid of him as I can't be the only one who deliberately turns off as soon as he starts gobbing off.

Yes.. Brundle and his son Alex would "bounce" well off each other.

Err don't think we need both Brundles in the comm box??!

Croft is getting more and more inane and self absorbed. He really is a leg-end in his own lunchtime.

There must be a better option? Please no-one suggest Nicholls or Jacques... they are just as annoying!

I used to enjoy Crofty in his Five Live days. I donít have Sky, but I have listened to his commentary on YouTube highlights and he does seem to just make sure his voice echo off the walls of the comms box
