I'm pretty sure it came out that ITV instructed the commentators to go mental over British drivers in around 06. Never mind the Hamilton nonsense in 07, the Button over the line in Hungary 06.... 

 

I'd be delighted to have James back, the first post Murray was always going to look worse than they were. 

 

Not put SkyF1 on recently, is there anymore features on Johnny Herbert? He won the 1995 British Grand Prix don't you know?

I think it's easy to slate the current standard as it's fresh in the memory.
The coverage now isn't quite on a par with what the BBC were churning out in 2009/10, but that's because it was such a peak in the quality. Sky is at the very least on a par with what itv gave us in their time

Testing coverage OK but it does include Mr. Croft on extended practice form.

No morning sessions for testing. There's no reasonable explanation for it.

It'd be far far too dull to watch all day long so I wouldn't be surprised if that's partly the reason

I watched five minutes of it. Switched off. It was boring. Report at the end of the day is enough for me.

Have to say, Lazenby's research/knowledge of drivers that he has built up is very impressive. Despite a few calls in earlier years about him being out of his depth as presenter he really knows what he's talking about now
