Brundle confirms BBC job

Martin Brundle told the audience at the Autocar Awards in London this evening that he will be commentating with the BBC next year.

"I'm delighted to be able to tell you all that I'll be joining the BBC next year," he said. "I've been commentating on F1 for the past dozen years and I briefly considered calling it a day, but in the end I decided to take up the BBC's offer and I am now very excited about working for them next year."
