That's my info as well. Two tweets straight off Twitter from a reliable source:

"Eddie Jordan is NOT part of the @SkySportsF1 team according to a report on RTE radio. Thank you Lord."

"Eddie Jordan will however be part of the BBC line up next year..."

Breaking news from Twitter that will require translation, although nothing unexpected: @MartinHaven @OfficiallyGT is in. she tweeted earlier about tomorrow being a "huge" day. she did A1GP for @SkySports

If you haven't worked it out, @OfficiallyGT is the Twitter name for Georgie Thompson.

I know, I should go to bed, have some sleep and wake up to the official announcement in the morning, but first one last tweet from Will Buxton:

"At the last count I believe it was Lazenby, Thompson, Rider, Croft, Brundle, Kravitz, Davidson plus a few others... Mansell rumoured too."

If that's right then surely it has to be Ben Edwards at the BBC. Finally.

I certainly hope so. At least the presenting team topic is one thing BBC viewers can smile about. Roll on 2012.

The Sky line up:
Quote:
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 Davidsonwill be reunited with Croft for commentary duties for each of the weekend's practice sessions.

Well, at least all the Sky viewers will be able to enjoy Georgie's take on the art of driving a performance car after a drink or three. http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/showbiz...6908-23407408/

I would have thought this would have caused her visa problems? Maybe she's going to be studio based.

It appears, as usual, Mr. Murdoch has been generous with his offers of renumeration. Can't blame people for looking after No 1. It will be a culture shock for some though, he does like to extract full "value" from his employees....

Overall, I think the BBC has a real opportunity here to keep and grow it's already flourishing viewing figures. Nobody is indispensable.

I see they're trying to spite the BBC by taking a wealth of their presenters (and probably making them more wealthy as well; I don't blame the team for moving). At least I imagine that's part of Sky's plan, other than the logical aspect of making it quicker and easier for the team to gel.

I remain to be convinced Sky will be for the more hardcore fan; for the more gossip-interested fan, I suspect. There's no need for such saturation of F1 programmes.
