    During yesterdays Candian Grand Prix James Allan used a word that winds me up no end... "straight-away", I hate this "American" word (No offense to the USA). Next they will be calling rain, precipitation!

    Well I have sent my email complaint to them... :)

    Any one agree?

    But what would the drivers say in the interview if this was banned?

    James Allen is annoying. Martin Brundle is the only good thing about the commentary. Murray Walker was mad as a badger but at least he was amusing.

    The digital feed on SKY was great, it made one of the most boring seasons (2002) bareable! It's a real shame it was only me + 3 other people who watched it!

    Oh no, it's spreading..... I belive the worst offender was Alex Wurz when his was racing as opposed to testing for McLaren.
