Anthony Davidson joins 5 Live
BBC Radio 5 Live has hired Formula One driver Anthony Davidson to join its commentary team for the 2009 season.
The 5 Live commentary team is led by David Croft alongside Anthony and pit lane reporter Holly Samos, and the season opens with the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne on Sunday 29 March.
Anthony was a guest commentator on 5 Live for the British and European Grands Prix last season.
Anthony says: "Over the last few years as a Formula One driver I've enjoyed being a guest commentator with Radio 5 Live, and I'm looking forward to joining the team for the full season this year as a regular in the commentary box.
"Commentating gives me the chance to explain what it feels like to drive an F1 car to the limit, and to share the inside view on all of the demands that a driver faces over the weekend."
