I’ve watched religiously for 30+ years and for me the James Allen/Martin Brundle and then Coulthard/Brundle pairing stand out as being ahead of anything that came before or indeed after. But then again I’m also one of the few that think ITV did a great job. :o Easy to forget how limited F1 coverage...
