Sky news update: four mainstream F1 commentators are looking ahead to the 2014 season with a whole day dedicated to analysis and aired on Sky Sports News.
Martin Brundle, Johnny Herbert, Anthony Davidson and Ted Kravitz are being assigned a two hour session each on Sky Sports News over the third Wednesday in January in order to look ahead to the 2014 F1 season. There is lots up for debate in any pre-season, but with the unpredictability of F1 thrown into the mix with all of the new regulations and car designs, the debates will centre on the promise of an unforgettable 2014 season.
Starting out the proceedings will be Ted Kravitz. He has been set the task of looking at how, amongst other improvements, the introduction of the 1.6 V6s and the lower noses will have an effect on the performance and aesthetics of the car and the overall outcome of the Championship. He will also analyse the new sporting regulations and the introduction of the double points – something that has already caused controversy around the sport.
Fellow commentator Johnny Herbert will look at the competitors; their teams, the moves that have been made between seasons. It will be the first season that Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen are competing together at Ferrari, while this will be the second year that Lewis Hamilton and Niko Rosberg join forces at Mercedes.
Thirdly, Anthony Davidson will look at the young guns, the up and comers of the F1 scene and how they will shape the season. Kevin Magnussen is entering his first season at the highest level and the Australian Daniel Ricciardo has been handed the not-so-small task of being Sebastian Vettel’s team mate and rival at Red Bull.
Finally, the ultimate F1 commentator, Martin Brundle will look at the huge topic of the season ahead – all nineteen races of it – and whether it is actually possible to remove Vettel from his position at the top.
These various interviews will be aired throughout the day on Sky Sports News, but if you should find yourself in the unfortunate position of being unable to view the channel throughout the day, there will be repeats on the specialist Sky Sports F1 channel.
The same channel will of course be covering all 19 races of the upcoming season but it is on a subscription only basis, therefore if you are interested in receiving these services, please contact the Sky customer services department.
