The in-match commentary comes from Jim Rosenthal, who is now better known for presenting the UK's Formula 1 TV coverage - a role in which he has recently made 2 high-profile public apologies, one after the final few laps of a thrilling duel were interrupted by their last contractually-required advertising break, and also after the USGP in which only six cars started due to tire issues.
