Sky Sports F1 have today confirmed on their Twitter account that Johnny Herbert will be part of their team for the Spanish Grand Prix, with Herbert being with the team from then through to the British Grand Prix.
As I noted several times in my ‘The Verdict so Far’ series, I think Herbert is an excellent pundit, thus I am pleased about this news. The tweet does not specifically confirm whether Herbert will be travelling to each of the five Grand Prix’s, but I suspect he will be.
I was considering watching BBC F1 next weekend had Herbert not been present with Sky Sports F1 (the Lazenby, Brundle and Hill line-up did nothing for me, mainly due to Hill’s woodenness), but this will, again make my viewing options difficult next weekend with Herbert back in the equation.
UPDATE at 17:45: Sky Sports F1’s online article is here, in which it is noted Johnny will be apart of The F1 Show and also provide ‘expert analysis’.
