Where there’s a Will…

What with the increasingly hateful costs of intercontinental air travel, any journalist hoping to cover Formula 1 ‘from the ground’ has to wear many hats. So it’s very pleasing to learn that Will Buxton is fresh from the milliner, so to speak, and will be taking over from Peter Windsor as SPEED TV’s pitlane reporter.
Will is an entertaining broadcaster – check out his GP2 work on YouTube – as well as a tenacious reporter. He broke in to F1 the hard way, slumming it around Europe in a camper van before spending a couple of years as a press officer for GP2. He’s also no slouch at Karaoke. Viewers in the US are in for a treat.

    So are we elsewhere, since no longer are we inflicted with Windsor in the post race and pre-weekend Press Conferences.

  1. I enjoyed Will Buxton’s F1 Racing articles and look forward to his success as pitlane reporter for Speed.

    Thanks for the scoop, Stu. I had been wondering who was going to take Peter’s place. And so it is Will Buxton. Although I’ll be blatantly honest: I might have preferred someone without the “t” in that last name…

    (Tsk-tsk, Aaron. I always thought Peter did a fine job with those interviews. And he wrote the foreword to Stuart’s new book…

    Oh dear, Aaron – if you buy my book you’ll probably want to tear out page 7 (which would be a pity – there’s a great pic on the other side…)
