His F1 commentary is leagues ahead of his performance for GP2.

I took the plunge midseason to go with 5 Live and haven't looked back since. Croft and Davidson are the most enjoyable pairing I've...

This is a misleading sample. Both are interlaced shots, and it looks like the decoder isn't deinterlacing the 576i shot, whereas it is deinterlacing the 1080i shot. Additionally the SD decoder isn't...

From 97-99 the Brazilian Grand Prix World Feed was produced by FOM using their own cameras. The output was largely similar to the Super Channel, but not identical as the shots above show. You can...

Agreed - with one exception: FOM left the battle for 10th between Hulkenberg and Alguesuari on the last lap, despite it being likely a move was going to be made.

Hulkenberg did it right at the end,...

Fuji take the 4:3 graphics package so this should be resolved (Yes, they use 4:3 graphics despite being the only broadcaster in the world broadcasting a race in HD!).

Nice pics.

These were first deployed at the 2006 Canadian Grand Prix replacing the F1 Digital+ models (96-06). Based on that it seems that they aren't upgraded to the 6000 model and therefore aren't...
