Jean Todt 2021: “We must go backwards”

#TJ13 #F1 – Jean Todt 2021: “We must go backwards”

The proposal to change the power unit regulations is in the process of finalisation.

The current set of power unit regulations which heralded the hybrid era, is in force since 2014 and is set to change from 2021.

The FIA presented its proposals for the 2021 PU regulations, under which teams would continue to use 1.6 litre, V6 turbo hybrid engines, but without MGU-H which is considered to be most…

Quick thought: Anthony Davidson is such an under rated broadcaster.

I tuned in for the whole of FP3 today and was encapsulated by Davidson’s commentary. You can tell his passion and enthusiasm for the sport just by how energetic he is in the commentary box- but he’s never blinded by this passion.

He’s able to analysis what’s happening on screen so quickly and give me (the viewer) a total different perspective on what has just occurred. He also gets on with Crofty like a house on fire I think, constantly bouncing off each other either analysing a situation or just general banter- something we don’t really see from Paul Di Resta.

His work on the touch screen ‘sky pad’ is exceptional as well, his breakdown of incidents, such as the Red Bull Baku crash here, really opens my mind to the view of a racing driver- screeching down the straight at 200mph only a few inches off the ground, compared to being sat on the sofa doing exactly 0 mph (unless I stretch out to 2mph to get a cuppa half way through).

I just wanted to share my thoughts and knowing Martin Brundle is out of at least two more races this year due to family reasons, I would love it if Davidson stepped in ahead of Di Resta.

Also I’m curious to know if anyone else has felt Brundle has been off his game in the last year or so? Getting simple things wrong such as the driver, tyres or what strategy they’re on seems to be creeping into his commentary more and more. I’m definitely not suggesting Brundle shouldn’t be co-commentator, I love his opinions and he is the voice of Formula One to me- but if for whatever reason he did leave, I think Davidson would step into his shoes- and do them justice as well.

Sorry for a long read but those were just my ‘quick’ thoughts!
