Neil Crompton

Anyone else listening to Cromley?
Surely he cant be "THAT EXCITED" all of a sudden about Formula One.
We dont need an Australian version of Murray Walker, Neil

I thought he did well. There are too few people that can commentate and race a car. He also did well explaining technical subjects in lay terms.

Yeah he knows alot, but he always repeated himself. We get it cromley, they have traction control and yes I can hear it.
I ended up watching the race with the sound off.
As a commentator he makes a good race car driver and lets face it, he was pretty ordinary at that as well!

The "Pit Pass" tech segments were very good and well presented.
The commentary was no worse than anything else we've been subjected to the last few years and I like his race analysis commentary.

All in all a job well done by TEN and I look forward to them continuing their development of the relationship with the BAR team and more inside looks.

Overall a good result from ch10. Cromly went a bit over the top at times but I thought it was a good effort. He'll calm down a bit over time, but his biggest asset is that he actually knows what he's talking about.

I didn't really listen to alot fo what was said. To busy sobering up from a long night on the

Honestly I reckon Cromley did a good job, he knows what he's talking about and is better to listen to than some of the other blokes.

Overall I think channel 10 did a much better job than channel 9. I'm glad F1 did the switch.
