It's in the objectivity where your standing as a commentator comes from.

I'd put it to you that Sky make Hamilton bigger than F1?

Tried to listen to BBC radio 5 - only option - who are these childish commentators? “Hamilton does a mighty lap 1.5 seconds quicker than his team mate and only lost it because of track limits”. What a gem. And then start discussing Driver of the season.... two races in! Honestly is this the best the BBC have?

I actually enjoy their commentary. Bit of light hearted fun, while being informative. And everyone loved Palmer’s criticism of Mazepin in Bahrain quali

Have to say this weekend, F1 will totally pass me by, such a shame, but it is without doubt the most inferior form of top level motorsport around right now

Thank you for the effort of jumping online to tell a bunch of people on a Formula One forum that Formula One is inferior.

Although I like Alex Jacques, it does feel weird without Ben. He was without equal in commentating since Murray retired. But I'm sure I'll get used to it as the season goes on

Sky F1 surely hit a new low on Saturday. Switched to Sky F1 for Indycar qualifying, that had been cancelled, instead viewers had to suffer Kravitz talking excrement about avian excrement on a parked car.
Subscribers are paying for prefessional coverage and analysis, not for verbal diarrhea.

Sky going on about the dire state of Hamilton's tyres, but no speculation on how bad Bottas is suffering?

Typically his are worse.

According to David Coulthard on the other channel, a driver in dirty air may have to work his tyres harder to run at a similar pace to the car in front. I dont have Sky, but I assume this may be what the Sky lot were referring to, as Hamilton spent a lot of the early part of the race running very close to Verstappen and then Bottas.

Could be worse, you could have been tuned in to BBC radio 5 live.....

Hamilton moaned about his tyres over the radio on the coverage. Bottas didn’t.

And one reason they talked about it was that the sky team also went on to laugh about how Hamilton might be wrong about that because his lap times were very good. I believe he set the fastest lap not long after he moaned about the tyres being “pretty shot”! Bottas didn’t.

To be fair when Hamilton overtook Bottas they talked about both drivers then. There were other times they couldn’t resist talking about Hamilton, like when he overtook Verstappen. Although they did talk about Bottas when he was overtaken by Verstappen. But by the time we got to the end of the race they seemed to only concentrate on Hamilton...
