Stop ITV Bias and James Allen's Commentary sign now

We are petitioning to stop ITV's sickening and unbearable bias towards Lewis Hamilton, and more specifically James Allen's awful commentary. Race on race we are subject to an hour's worth of absolutely terrible reporting from ITV, largely consisting of tiresome and now incredibly tedious features on Lewis Hamilton, or alternatively, 'cooking with Heikki Kovalainen'. This is then followed by the irksome babblings of a complete fool. James Allen appears to have forgotten that the F1 grid consists of 21 drivers other than Lewis Hamilton. Indeed; in the Monaco GP qualifying coverage he apologised to us for having to watch "the wrong car" as we witnessed Fisichella complete his hot lap. The list of ridiculous, incorrect and frankly unbelievable things he has spouted forth is endless.
For this reason, we would like to request James Allen is removed from the commentary box with immediate effect, and replaced by a commentator who can actually commentate. We would also appreciate it if ITV provided us with something more than what is nothing less than atrocious coverage - if this is not possible, may we suggest that you consider handing the coverage back over to the far more competent BBC, who, by the way, have also been responsible for the television production and direction of the British GP for over 10 years after the transfer of their right to show the event on their TV channels.

    I just wish they mentioned other drivers once in while and chose not to show "The Lewis Hamilton Hour" before every Grand Prix and I'm also sick of having to see his bloody father every other weekend on my TV screen. And as far as James Allen is concerned

    amazing how it couldn't be Raikonen's excellent driving and great car that won British Grand Prix and also Alonso's fantastic drive. It was Hamilton having a fault with his car which Ron Dennis said nothing about. Bring back the BBC coverage with it's sni

    The cruel jibes at Kubica this weekend sealed it for me ("Brad Pitt he ain't", "Piece of chewing gum"). Get rid of Allen.
