Change is tough
1. Varsha was the best, teamed with Hobbs and Matchett. Never got used to Diffey and that nasal tone. I'm not sure who is providing the majority of the commentary now, but the yelling during possible/impending/occurring passes wears on me quickly. Screamy McScreamerson. I know they are trying to drum up excitement, but it sounds like the finish of a horse race.
2. Will Buxton did a fantastic job walking the grid before the race. What I saw in Bahrain was not that great (sorry Martin Brundle). A solid portion of his time was spent trying to find anyone to talk with. Do you think they were purposely avoiding him at some points? He interfaced with (I think Rob Smedley from Williams?) and made some backhanded comment about the car being way in the back of the grid...it clearly got under the skin of his interviewee, and resulted in a snide comment back. Not really that fun.
I hope it gets better, but it's not like I'm going to stop watching.
