Less chat, more noise

Watching the MotoGP on Saturday from the Netherlands, they cut to the pitlane for a report, and the sound cut out. It was excellent – all you could hear were the bikes hammering round. Which led me to thinking: why don’t the Beeb offer that as an option via the Red Button for the F1?

It’s obviously good to have commentary on so you know what’s happening, but every now and again it would be cool just to hear the cars/bikes.

That sound is rarely heard unencumbered by chatter on any broadcast, so it would be a BBC Sport first too.

And while we’re at it, as we’ve had a few races to take it all in, what else would/wouldn’t you like from your F1 coverage?

Maybe Clarkson in the commentator’s chair?

the only time you can not ear the womping is if you go onboard the cars via the red button and that enoys the hell out of me as they keep switching to diffrent cars i thought all the major teams had onboard cameras so why not make it so you can choose which driver you want to be onbord with or who you support keep it up JB lol.

I think that Murray Walker, and Richard Hammond would make a good combination, because Murray Walkers words are cursed, and we can listen to Richard Hammond make a fool of himself.

It was extremely interesting for me to read the post. Thanks for it. I like such topics and everything that is connected to them. I definitely want to read a bit more soon. By the way, rather nice design you have here, but what do you think about changing it every few months?
