    Attention Coulthard, Jordan & Brundle join BBC

    Coulthard, Jordan & Brundle join BBC


    Coulthard will work for the BBC while continuing as a Red Bull test driver


    David Coulthard and Eddie Jordan have joined the BBC as part of next year's presentation team in Formula One.
    Coulthard, who retired as a race driver at the end of the 2008 season, will join former team boss Jordan as a pundit alongside anchor Jake Humphrey.
    Jonathan Legard moves from 5 Live to commentate with ex-F1 driver and award-winning broadcaster Martin Brundle.
    And veteran commentator Murray Walker will return to the BBC as a regular presence on the Sport website.
    The 84-year-old, who became a household name during five decades of F1 commentary for the BBC, will be offering his expert insight and perspective on the action and interacting with F1 fans through an online Q&A forum.
    The pit-lane reporters will be Ted Kravitz and Lee McKenzie.
    I was delighted to be given the opportunity to share my views and experiences through the BBC coverage of F1



    David Coulthard


    For Coulthard, who will continue as a test driver and consultant for Red Bull, it will be a first foray into broadcasting after a long and successful Grand Prix career behind the wheel that included 13 victories and runner-up spot in the world championship to Michael Schumacher in 2001.
    The 37-year-old Scot said: "After 15 seasons competing in F1, my passion for the sport is still very much alive, and therefore I was delighted to be given the opportunity to share my views and experiences through the BBC coverage of F1.
    "Many of the BBC team are known to me already and, for those members new to F1, I look forward to building on the established audience of F1 fans in the UK." 606: DEBATE

    Legard is returning to F1 after four years as 5 Live's football correspondent - he was the radio station's F1 correspondent from 1997 until 2004.
    Humphrey switches to F1 having previously worked on the Beijing Olympics and Euro 2008, among other things.
    Kravitz, like Brundle, is a former member of ITV's F1 team. McKenzie, the daughter of Daily Express F1 correspondent Bob McKenzie, has been a broadcaster on motor racing and other sports for ITV and Sky Sports.
    The BBC has a five-year deal to broadcast F1. It runs from 2009-2013 and includes exclusive rights for TV, radio, online and mobile.
    Niall Sloane, BBC head of F1, said: "We have put a fantastic team together and are delighted to be able to offer a comprehensive and engaging Formula One experience. "This is an exciting sport and we are very much looking forward to next year." Further details about the BBC's plans for the coming season will be revealed in the new year.
