Please remove James Allen from the ITV F1 Commentary sign now

Dear Sir

This petition is drawn up in order to demonstrate to you the strength of feeling that is currently directed at one James Allen and to ask that he be sent out of the commentary box and back down to the pit lane where he belongs. The Australia F1 Grand Prix was yet another start to an F1 Grand Prix ruined by James Allens dumbed down, overexcited drowning.

While his ITV co-commentator Martin Brundle offers an insightful and considered view of the action, Allen does little more than shout the odds and endlessly speculates about possible pit-stop strategies. And now this season he gets to repeat the pit to car radio messages that we all get to hear. I hate to say that I miss Murray walker but at least his enthusiasm made up for his lack of understanding on what was going on

So Please ITV go back to the drawing bored and get a new anchor commentator and put us all out of our misery.

    Hates Schumacher and makes no attempt to hide the fact.Consistently predicts his failure and consistently looks stupid when SCHUMI wins.Makes sad attempts at Murrayesque excitment and fails dismally.Brundle carries him.

    James Allen should go back to what he's good at, the Pit-Lane reporting. Bring in Ben Edwards as Martin Brundles Co-Partner! Now that would be good! =D

    James Allen is a fekin headbuster. He was alrite in the pits cos that is what he is at commentating,the pits.Cant u get Murray to commentate from his home or where ever he is at the time of the race.

    Rarely adds anything - most are either pointless drivel, statements of the flippin' obvious, or personal views on a par with what I can get in the pub. Why do these people think they have to fill every second with babble?
  • 24 October 201327. Craig W
    Please get rid of him; someone like Ben Edwards, or by the guy who does touring cars on the BBC. Anyone but Allen!!
  • 13 September 201326. Jamie N
    Unfortunatley he's just not up to the job, just listen to radio 5 to hear how it should be done
  • 26 July 201325. Roy L
    Most importantly, Brundle has the respect of the drivers and team bosses, as did Walker before him, and can therefore gain access and insight beyond speculation. Allen commands and enjoys nobody's respect and is left flailing in supposition at a level tha

    I would like to add , i believe Murray Walker Knew exactly what was going on in a race, he was just very passionate and as excited by racing at the end of his career as he was at the begining
