Former Grand Prix driver Martin Brundle has walked away with one of the biggest awards in television after claiming the 'Sports Pundit' trophy from the Royal Television Society (RTS).
At their annual Television Sports Awards ceremony in London on Wednesday night, Brundle was handed the trophy for his contributions to ITV's Formula One coverage.
The RTS said Brundle was "an outstanding operator at the very peak of his game - with an extraordinary ability to simplify and entertain in an often complex sport.
"He also exhibited a fearless authority on some of the most sensitive issues - not least his gimlet-eyed pursuit of Formula one boss Bernie Ecclestone on the grid at Indianapolis!"
Brundle beat off challenges from Channel 4's famous horse racing pundit John McCririck and cricket's Simon Hughes.
ITV's F1 coverage was also handed a Sports Innovation Award for its insight features last year, where the secrets of Formula One machinery were explained.
