Does Martin Brundle hold a degree in (Mechanical) Engineering? I'm sure I heard Mark Blundell mention it a few years ago during the Spa pre-race show. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Graybriggs (talk • contribs)

"but in the second half of the year was regularly able to outrace the young German"
I don't know if it's correct to say Brundle "regularly outraced" Schumacher. Fact is that Brundle finished ahead of Schumacher only twice. Once in Silverstone on Brundle's home track and secondly in Monza when Schumacher had a crash on lap 1 and had to work his way up from the back of the field and still finished third behind Brundle. That's hardly being "regularly outraced" by Brundle. 126.96.36.199 14:32, 26 December 2006 (UTC)
Talk pages aren't for this
Wikipedia policy is that talk pages are for suggesting improvements to the article. I just had to add this Bryan Adams grid-walk interview for non-ITV F1 fans:
- "Martin Brundle: "Bryan, glad I caught up with you. Had to run to you. It seems like everything I do today is in a bit of a rush, but please forgive me." ... "The first time I went to a Grand Prix I thought I was going to go to Heaven." ... "These drivers are pretty reckless, but they don't give up do they?" ... "Thanks for talking to us, let's hope we can make it a race to remember."
- Bryan Adams: "Yeah, when you're gone."Mark83 23:00, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

is it noteworthy about his comments at the canadian grand prix? (UTC)
Martin Brundle was investigated by Ofcom in 7 complaints, for using the term "Pikeys" in a television broadcast amid ITV apology. Brundle referred to repairs being made to the track:"There are some pikeys out there putting down new tarmac at Turn 10. Are they out of the way yet?" The word is considered insulting by the traveller community. The Oxford English Dictionary traced its use in 1837 by Times, “referring to strangers harvesting in the Isle of Sheppey island. Later that century it meant a "turnpike traveller" or vagabond. Recently, It’s use was associated with Irish travellers and Roma Gypsies.news.bbc.co.uk, How offensive is the word 'pikey'?mirror.co.uk, Formula 1 commentator in 'pikey' Ofcom probe--Florentino floro (talk) 12:57, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Post Formula One
"With Steve Rider busy covering the England versus Kazakhstan 2010 FIFA World Cup Group 6 qualification match, Brundle co-commentated and presented coverage of the 2008 Japanese Grand Prix at Fuji Speedway."
"Brundle, along with former team owner Eddie Jordan and former F1 driver David Coulthard will form the 'pundit' team for commentary on the BBC broadcasts of Formula One races from 2009 onwards."
