The BBC has revealed its plans for coverage of the 2013 F1 season, and with nine of the nineteen races to shown live, Monaco, one of the so-called 'crown jewels' of motors sport is to be highlights only.
Former F1 driver Allan McNish will join Radio 5 live for at least six Grands Prix as an expert analyst, his first appearance will be in Barcelona. F1 journalist and broadcaster Tom Clarkson also joins the television presentation team for the full season as a pit lane reporter.
They complete the 2013 line up along with the recently announced Suzi Perry who will anchor the full season for television. Ben Edwards once again leads the television commentary with David Coulthard as co-commentator and expert pundit, and Eddie Jordan as chief analyst.
Lee McKenzie heads the pit lane team for television and this year Gary Anderson's technical analyst role will work across television, radio and online. James Allen returns as Radio 5 live F1 correspondent and commentator with Jennie Gow as pit lane reporter.
"Everyone on the BBC team is hugely excited about the new season," said Ben Gallop, the BBC's Head of Formula 1. "Last year saw us rise to the challenge of bringing the action to fans through the mix of live television and highlights, delivering great programmes which were reflected in impressive audience figures.
"2013 sees new faces, with Suzi Perry at the helm, we're aiming to bring even more content, insight and access to audiences throughout the season."
