Curious, because loads of people have been bitching about the BBC over-hyping (and 'talking too much to') di Resta last year.
I'm quite concerned by this, to be honest. On BBC TV we'll have Jake Humphrey fawning all over Hamilton, and on the radio we'll have James Allen fawning all over Hamilton. Thankfully Humphrey isn't a commentator, so the preamble and post-race stuff can be avoided on the telly, but that's difficult to do on the radio. Hmmm, maybe the Beeb wants to alienate all of their viewers and listeners so they can be justified in offloading the coverage to Sky?
The BBC have never really fawned over Hamilton. I get the impression that after ITV they decided to lay off of Hamilton because he polarised opinion so much. Much to the point that his wins really didn't get that
much analysis in comparison to others (including his teammate).
So. Conveniently Red Bull ended up with the quickest car and Bernies boy came to the fore and we had to witness the spectacle of DC, Humphries and Jordan having a group love-in over Vettel week-in week-out no matter if he won or not..... And I cannot recall many complaining about that. *
Hopefully Sky will be a bit more balanced - whoever wins.
* Happy now?
