I'd be all for "Ant" replacing DiResta when Brundle is off racing. DiResta's Lewis bias is a little much. STILL going on about the Ferarri being the best car. Plus, and I'm going to be a little mean here, Paul has a face for radio.
Well you don't normally see much of the commentators in-vision anyway, so yeah that's a bit mean to poor DiRestaurant
. Anthony Davidson is always teased for his short height, but it's all good-natured banter. Before the race, he and Karun Chandhok were on the roof of one of the huge high-rise hotels. Ant said "Ah, so this
is what it's like to look down on people!" LOL
I dunno how friendly that was, BOT was a couple inches from the barrier. Hopefully he doesn't mean Schumacher on Ruebens "unfriendly".
I fear that's exactly what he meant
Remember the big battle in Bahrain he had with Rosberg a few years ago. There were a couple of brutal chops he did which Rosberg has said were definitely "not ok", running him completely off the track etc.

Oh, there was another choice comment I've just remembered. Toto was talking about letting them race hard at the end of the race. He said that they were perfectly fair with each other, and he hoped they wouldn't crash into each other etc. Then said "and I hope it continues for the rest of the season
". Not "for ever" or anything open-ended about for however long they are team-mates. Just THIS season. Something about the way he said it led me to think that this will be Bottas' last season with Merc, no matter what happens. Of course I could easily be reading too much into it.
