Will Buxton (f1 semi announcer guy)

This is the guy who's always on a slightly garbled radio who I guess runs around the pits. He annoys me, whenever the main announcers ask a question and he chimes in, Never directly on point always adds a ton of other useless stuff and makes pretty wild accusations and conspiracy theories all the time.

i absolutely hate that fucker, he always gets stuff wrong and the other announcers have to correct him. He got owned by MSC after asking a dumbass question not too long ago

The guy is worthless, hope they bring back Peter Windsor for next season since it doesnt look like his team will be taking off, although I hope for him it does, he's a good guy and I wish him the best

Can't be as annoying as Jonathan Legard. His voice irritates me and he always trying to get excited for nothing....he's slowing killing Martin Brundle in BBC....

YES

And I hope Peter Windsor comes back. He was awesome. Drivers seemed to respect him too when he interviewed them.

I actually like him much better than Peter Windsor. There was something about Peter that always made it seem like he was about to snap and deck a fool.

+1 on Westbury Gillett

I, too, am hoping for the return of Peter Windsor.

All of the commentating team @ speedTV is crap. I used to like Matchett, but he and the other 2 idiots in the box have shown their bias way too much for me to trust anything they say. Windsor was far worse. I am shocked we never had shots of him giving Hamilton a hand job on the grid prior to the race.

If you think the commentary is biased, watch the BBC feed. They are absurdly biased towards Hamilton (Webber to a lesser degree).

And while I have huge respect for Martin Brundle, his anti-Schumacher tirade is getting a bit annoying.

Windsor is definitely better than Buxton; but at least it's not Westbury Gillett... he was terrible. I don't mind Matchett or Varsha, but Hobbs bothers me.

I actually like Hobbs! He's kind of a 'grumpy old Englishman' but he seems to be the only one that actually understands racing (due to his past). That, and he has a classic British sense of humor.
