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.
