SUPER HOT FUCKIN' SPICY rear end TAKE READY TO SERVE

If Flav was still in F1 I'm like 90% sure he'd have engineered a way to run the Mercedes F1 team and Alonso would be a 9 time world champion right now.

Singapore '08 killed Alonso's career because it got the kingmaker blacklisted from F1.

My favourite recent Crofty moment was Nico Rosberg giving him shade for talking utter nonsense during free practice. If you think he's bad during the qualifying and races, he's much worse in free practice because of the added #bants which are usually poo poo. LOL ANT DAVIDSON IS SHORT EH LADS etc etc.

He is irredeemably poo poo. I can't bring myself to watch FP sessions unless they're muted because he just rambles on filling dead air, inexplicably repeating garbage from Twitter and Reddit.

I'm not even expecting some form of ~journalistic integrity~ but why the gently caress is the fat, bloviating, shouty piece of poo poo even on the payroll when they have like at least 7 former F1 drivers, 4 of whom are race winners and 3 of whom are former WDCs? Like what loving insight does the rear end in a top hat bring to anybody who isn't watching the TV or has the reddit app on their phone?

I remember when they had Karun and Davidson together for FP which was great. They seem like pretty good friends and both of them are actual racedrivers so had interesting stuff to say.

For some reason F1 always has to have a non race driver as a commentator tho

8 former drivers, I forgot former F1 driver and LMP1 championship winner Anthony Davidson, who presumably also doesn't reference his experience of commentating on darts on his CV.

Oh gently caress, I forgot Allan McNish who does some incidental work too and also is not a darts commentator but somebody with a passing familiarity with motorsport having driven for an actual F1 team in a professional capacity. So it's 9.

They're trying to find the next Murray Walker, which is impossible.

Murray shouted a lot and sometimes got the names of the drivers wrong because he was genuinely enthusiastic about the events of the race and often got overexcited, this was endearing.

The series of bloated tossbags we've had since shout all the time and don't even bother to learn the names of most of the drivers because "that's what Murray did, right?", this is not endearing.

They did a lockdown zoom commentary thing with Crofty, Ant, and Jenson for the Canada race, and Crofty kept on taking the piss out of Ant mentioning that he was a test driver “I wondered how long it would take before you tried to claim credit”, and kept on an on at him until Jenson snapped and explained exactly what a test driver did in that era and why Ant *did* deserve credit for the win.

Him banging on about tattoos and Renault is far worse though, like dude, if you want a tattoo just go out and loving get one it’s 2020 and you are a grown man for Christ sake.

Love the energy, Theo.
In the Tuscan GP there was this glorious moment where he didn't notice the lights had gone out for half a beat, then just had to yell AND ITS LIGHTS OUT AND AWAY WE GO before realising he was catchphrasing instead of actually commenting and stumbling to finish it.

e: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gT43w0EDBPU#t=344s (5:45) this is how you commentate
Wish I could hear Crofty's limp yet still over-egged WHEEL TO WHEEL instead of that, said no one.

If you have F1TV the pitlane stream has much better commentating and three camera views. It's so much better than the global tv stream.

Do you have a link for that? I'd love to take a look at it.
Also, being a F1 test driver is still much closer to being an F1 driver than Croft (or really most folks) will get to be, so he can gently caress off with that.

Starting 2021 every F1 car should have one of these vacuum cleaners on every wheel to suck up their own micro particles.
They'll have to carry whatever they loose in tire degradation to the end of the race.
A whole new era of tire wars.
Instead of champagne, winner will get to pour the content of his vacuum bag over the others.
