If you are not based in the UK or don’t watch the BBC coverage of MotoGP then you may want to skip this one.
After a few weeks of dark and sad news headlines dominating MotoGP, it is nice to have a story (or rumour at least) that looks like bringing some light and happiness back to the sport.
MotoGP’s gain could be F1′s loss, as rumours are going around suggesting that Charlie Cox could be leaving the BBC’s MotoGP commentary team to join……….the BBC F1 coverage!
Charlie Cox is what the mute button was made for on the TV, he is the special olympics of sports commentating – and if this news is true, then most MotoGP fans will be celebrating up and down the UK.
Oh, and F1 fans, we understand that satisfaction with Jonathan Legard as a commentator is pretty low, but you’d better get used to hearing phrases like “he needed that like a third armpit”, “that shot the fox”, “the red car has overtaken the blue car” (replace ‘car’ with ‘bike’ for MotoGP), and lots of wheezing talk about eating the other commentator’s lunch and getting out of the circuit early to avoid the traffic if Cox is on his way to your screens.
