Singapore Commentary

Did anyone notice anything.... unusual about todays commentary by James Allen?

He didn't go on about Lewis all the time and he didn't insult all the other drivers either!

It seems as if someone had words with him.

This amuses myself and rfh_f1 greatly, because I wrote to ITV a couple of weeks ago, complaining to them about James Allen's inappropriate comments and I included this as my final line in my letter: "Mr Allen would be wise to remember that there are a great variety of fans who do not wish to hear their driver insulted, or shunned by excessive commentary of one driver."

I know for a fact that ITV received my letter because I had a reply, which more or less thanked me for bothering to contact them, but saying nothing else, though it did say this: "We appreciate that it is impossible for a commentary team to please the viewers all of the time. We always welcome feedback from our viewers and have made a note of your comments, whch will be logged and viewed by senior management."

Sooo did senior management talk to James Allen?

Regardless of whether I had anything to do with this, it does amuse us, and I for one, am thankful for the change in commentary today!

Whether it was your direct influence or not, I'm very grateful for the reduction in Lewis!wank. And Martin actually gave my Nico driver of the day (giving it to Fernando was too much of a stretch for them, even though Martin did grudgingly say Nando was the best driver in F1 at the moment).

I know what you mean there! If I'd have realised that all it took was for someone to complain, then I'd have done it earlier! We shall have to see what happens at the next race!

I was going to say I think I was tuning him out of my mind at the time, but the more I read that the more I think I heard it... but maybe that's just James Allen's voice in my head. Scary!

If I'd have known that was all it took for them to change, I'd have complained sooner! I'm tempted to write to them again and tell them how pleased I am over their commentary yesterday, but I'll give it another race first I think before I do that...

On Fernando - We can't expect miracles from James so soon... but give it time and we'll change it all....
