well im voting for James allen,
Has much as he knows his stuff (has shown by the books hes written) the guy is not cut out for commentating, and here's why he annoys me:
The guy has observation skills of David Blunkett. The most obvious showing of that is in France when he tells us how Button is missing off the times sheets and is wondering if he has retired when on screen button is blatenly on screen walking back to this garage after Brundle has even pointed out what he and 300million people are seeing on screen.
The way he trys to be like Murray Walker and force excitement into is voice when something he things everyone is exited about happens, Buttons first win is an example of it, the way he trys to be Murray-esque has button crosses the line. It was so forced and unnatural, Infact i found it so annoying that while I should be remembering a fantastic race and seeing a driver i like and someone who gets no luck get is first win, all that comes into my head is his annoying voice. It was that bad i had to mute the TV. yes he might of been genuinely exited and happy about Buttons win but if it doen't come out in his voice he shouldn't try it. and oh yeah, James....YOUR NOT MURRAY WALKER! so stop tying to be.
His stupid little catchphrases. There not funny, not interesting, there not needed and again its him tying to be like murray Walker. (just take a nose at the sniff petrol archive's to find some)
and finally his little crush on golden boy Hamilton. Yes Hamilton is a very good driver and more then likely become a true great of F1. but there are at leat 19 other drivers in F1. everything is relative to Hamilton. If Kimi is 1st and Hamilton is 2nd, Kimi is not leading the race is his one place ahead of hamilton. Hamilton's race in Monaco this year wasn't senna-esque because he flung it in the wall and only a safety car got him back in a postion to win, when senna was at his best he didn't fling it into the wall and didn't need safety cars to get a chance to win.
