A new challenge with BBC Radio 5 Live
Jan 5, 2012, 9:10 PM

I'm delighted to announce that I am joining the BBC Radio 5 Live team as F1 correspondent and lead commentator this season.

I'm delighted to announce that I am joining the BBC Radio 5 Live team as F1 correspondent and lead commentator this season.

I'm really happy about this; 5 live is the default setting on my radio at home and in the car, it's a great institution and I'm proud to be part of it.

Anyone who has followed my career knows I love a challenge; whether it's taking over from Murray Walker, setting up this website, or creating the first F1 fans forums.

I've never done radio before and I'm really looking forward to adapting to a new medium.

This is a time of significant change in our industry and I see great opportunity here, thanks to the unique place Radio 5 Live has in this sport.

Readers can be reassured that nothing will change in terms of the coverage here on JA on F1. I'll still be providing insights into the news and goings on in F1. We have some great plans for 2012.

UK readers wishing to hear the 5 Live F1 output can tune in to the radio station or access the audio online via the 5 Live website

You will also be able to down load the free chequered flag podcast at bbc.co.uk/5live with expert analysis and reaction from the circuit.

5 live Formula 1 will be on 5 live Sport every Friday night prior to a race. This will preview all the action and give the very latest news from the track.

Additionally, our commentary of all the practice sessions, qualifying and the race will be on the BBC Sport website and will be available on the Red Button for the ten BBC TV live races.

Fans at the track will be able to hear us in real time on the rentable Fanvision units.

I will continue to Tweet at @jamesallenonf1 and you can also follow our adventures on @5LiveF1.

And a final note for viewers of Ten Sport in Australia: Don't worry, I'll still be contributing to the shows, as before.
