Sky F1 commentators for the 2020 F1 season will be headlined by Ted Kravitz and David Croft, with Karun Chandhok and Martin Brundle too.
The man with the golden voice. Martin Brundle is a former F1 driver himself, no less, having raced in 158 Grand Prix. He raced for the likes of McLaren and Benetton during his 12 year F1 career.
What is not known about Brundle is that he finished second to the legendary Aryton Senna in the 1983 British F3 Championship, progressing to F1 the following year with Senna. He was also considered to be the 30th best driver of all time in a mathematical study by the University of Sheffield.
Brundle has covered F1 for ITV and BBC in the past. He joined the Sky F1 team in 2012, and has been commentating ever since. He is the go-to man when it comes to qualifying and main races all through the season.
Other Sky F1 commentators for the 2020 season:
David Croft is the lead commentator of F1 for Sky Sports, since 2012. He started commentating in F1 from 2006, covering races for BBC Radio 5 Live.
Apart from Formula One, the 50-year-old has also covered the 2002 FIFA World Cup and the 2004 Athens Olympics.
Crofty, as he is better known as, has also been the voice of the official Codemasters F1 game since 2010.
The ever-reliable pit lane reporter, Ted has done F1 commentating for almost 24 years now. He has worked for the likes of ITV and BBC, before switching to Sky, alongside Brundle and co.
Apart from his pit-lane duties, he also hosts The F1 Show, and Ted’s Notebook, where he shares technical news and updates about F1.
He is so popular with the fans that when a rumor surfaced that he will leave Sky in 2019, they launched an online petition and ensured he was onboard still.
The second Indian to race in F1 after Narain Kartikeyan, Karun Chandhok did so for Hispania Racing in 2010. He also did a solo race for Team Lotus in 2011, and has represented India in the A1 Grand Prix, considered to be the “World Cup of Motorsports”.
After leaving F1, he has worked in commentary with BBC Radio Live 5 and Channel 4 from 2013 to 2016, along with Sky. He rejoined Sky Sports F1 from the 2019 season, and gives expert comments from the pit lane.
