Former McLaren F1 driver and lead BBC commentator Martin Brundle has confirmed that he will be joining to Sky Sports for the 2012 F1 season. This statement confirmed with his both a Sunday Times article and his personal Twitter account.
“(I) can confirm I’ll be commentating on Sky Sports F1 in 2012,” Brundle wrote on Twitter. “All races live on dedicated F1 channel and more tech features is what motivates me. Yes, I’ll be doing gridwalks in the future of course, it’s my trademark.”
“It’s not for me to announce who else is working where from next season,” Brundle continued. “I’m convinced two mighty broadcasters in Sky and BBC head-to-head at races will be great for F1 fans overall. Be patient, lots happening…yes money is better but it was not the deciding factor. That’s all the news from me today. I’m here to commentate on F1 with the creative hard-working BBC crew I’ve had the privilege to be part of.”
Martin Brundle’s commentary jobs start on in 1997, working alongside the legendary Murray Walker for ITV. After the latter’s departure; Brundle joined with James Allen for seven full seasons among 2002 and 2008.
