Now I realise I'm very much in danger of comimg across as a tin foil hat wearing conspiracy bloke where it comes to F1 media but there is a simple answer as to what is going off with Ted. The impression is given that Ted is down in the pit lane finding out all these nuggets of information from important people. This Isn't true. He does hang around the teams where he is passed information by either the team or the drivers media public relations manager. He then takes what he thinks is interesting and relays it to us and the commentary team. The main issue with this is of course that public relations managers are only going to pass on positive information that reflects there team/driver in a good light. Which is why so often in the race we hear Ted talking about drivers trying to get other drivers on strategy they have no chance of getting...with Brundle stating that it's a load of rubbish after its been said. It's also a system open to human error and human skill. If a driver/team has a very good public relations officer then positive stuff about them gets on the air a lot (e.g. Alonso) so gets ingrained in people's minds as truth. Also if the reporter Ted knows a PR manager better than others and they are mates etc what they have to say is on air more too (e.g. Palmer). The reason I dislike Ted Kravitz is that he relays information without checking for himself that it's actually true. There are multiple examples of this over multiple years. Most of us do not think to question what we're being told though. Anyways. Off topic. Hamilton and Vettel are my top two this year by the way.
