The British journalist who co-commentated with Martin Brundle during a nine-year period and took over from the much-respected Murray Walker, James Allen’s influence on the popular journalism of Formula 1 has never been so great. Allen started out with the Brabham team in 1990 before being made news editor at Autosport magazine two years later. Whilst working at ITV, as a television commentator, he was heavily criticised by viewers for his apparent-British bias, especially where Lewis Hamilton was concerned. His website jamesallenonf1.com is one of the most respected sources for expert commentary on the sport. And the website is becoming even more popular.
