The decision comes from Sky, which responds to the controversy by suspending the two commentators for a grand prix. Meanwhile, Bobbi and Valsecchi apologize on social media.

Matteo Bobbi and Davide Valsecchi suspended from Sky for a GP. The two voices of Formula 1 sanctioned with a one-time stop for the inappropriate sentences uttered during last Sunday’s live television broadcast, as part of the story of the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Spain. The company confirms the suspension rumors, which then decides to give a signal after the controversy aroused by the embarrassing images that have been circulating online for hours.

The vulgar comments of Matteo Bobbi and Davide Valsecchi

“I wanted to tell Davide that behind him there is a nice ‘package of updates’ if he turns around”, is Bobbi’s comment who sent his colleague to turn around to observe the girl in question. Even worse was Valsecchi’s reply who, turning around to observe, comments: “I know them, unfortunately they told me that they cannot be tested”. An inelegant exchange that continues with ping pong between the two, strictly on live TV.

The embarrassment of the correspondent Federica Masolin

The embarrassment shown by the correspondent Federica Masolin is evident, as she tries to continue, blocking the interventions of the two, and exclaiming in an ironic but at the same time annoyed way: “I ask for political asylum, can’t we watch some interviews instead of listening to these two? ”. The direction then transmits the interview requested by the correspondent which should put an end to the moment in question. But back live, the two continue. “Will we see them safe and sound again at the next Grand Prix after this little curtain appreciated above all by their wives?”, the correspondent had asked them. Partial the reverse of Bobbi: “If I go home, I guess I’ll take a lot of blows”. Valsecchi, on the other hand, continues undaunted: “I’ve already had eye surgery twice because I’ve lost my sight from looking at those things since I was a child.”

Apologies from Valsecchi and Bobbi

Apologies from Valsecchi and Bobbi also arrived during the day. “I’m sorry, so much”, Valsecchi begins in the Instagram story published a little while ago. ”Sunday, after the race, I fell into a bad taste exchange and used inappropriate and disrespectful words. For this, I would like to apologize to anyone who has felt offended, to women and to Sky, really”. ”Sunday after the race I was the protagonist of a joke that came out in a completely unhappy way. Even though it wasn’t my intention, I generated an unpleasant moment that made some people’s sensibilities suffer,” says Bobbi instead.
