  If the USF1 team is gone will Peter Windsor continue in his job doing Formula 1 track interview and commentary on SpeedTV?
 
   No. Speed has contracted with a Brit by the name of Will Buxton to take over those duties. Although, you might see Windsor doing some fluff pieces.

About Will Buxton
Will Buxton is the Editor of acclaimed virtual publication GPWeek, a weekly online publication bringing you the latest news and insight into the worlds of Formula 1, GP2, MotoGP and the WRC.

A motorsport writer for the last eight years, Buxton also spent three years heading up PR for the GP2 Series, a championship on which he now provides international commentary and analysis for a variety of global television networks as the commentator for the FOM world feed.

Buxton began his career as a journalist while still at University. He cut his teeth covering the University of Leeds (UK) Formula Student team, and whilst writing his Political Studies Thesis on “The Politics of Formula 1″ began writing monthly feature articles for Joe Saward at www.grandprix.com.

On graduation, Buxton was given his first break into full-time journalism by David Tremayne at Formula 1 Publishing’s Official Formula 1 Magazine. Buxton was employed as Staff Writer at the magazine until its closure in February 2004, at which point he embarked on a season as a freelance hack. Taking the old school route, Buxton decided to spend the 2004 season living in a campervan, driving from race to race and staying in the fan campsites at every European F1 event that year. It was to be an unforgettable experience and one which still shapes his writing style.

At the end of 2004 Buxton was offered the role of Press Officer for the newly formed GP2 Series. He leapt at the chance and after one year in the job was promoted to Director of Communications for the championship. He stayed with GP2 until the end of the 2007 season, when an opportunity to return to his first love of journalism arose.

In 2008 Buxton returned to full-time journalism as Editor of the newly launched GPWeek virtual magazine. Under Buxton’s Editorship the magazine quickly established itself as a reliable and entertaining source of motorsports news. Now in its second year, GPWeek continues to go from strength to strength.

Buxton is the FIA Accredited Journalist for Australasian Motorsport News at every Formula 1 Grand Prix, and he is also the commentator for the FOM world feed of the GP2 Series and GP2 Asia Series, championships which remain close to his heart. At the F1 2009 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, he made his first appearance as the interviewer in the post-qualifying televised FIA press conference.

Will Buxton is a full member of the Guild of Motoring Writers.
