NEWS STORY
29/01/2018

The 10 races that Channel 4 will broadcast live free-to-air in Britain before the sport goes pay-per-view in 2019 have been announced.

Form next season (2019), all live coverage of F1 will be exclusive to Sky, with details of other (highlights) deals still to be announced.

Sky Sports will show exclusive coverage of the first grand prix of the season, as Britain’s four-time world champion Lewis Hamilton begins his title defence in Australia.

Two new Grands Prix for 2018 will also be shown exclusively live, as the sport, for the first time in nearly thirty years, heads back to Circuit Paul Ricard for the French Grand Prix, while the German Grand Prix from Hockenheim makes its comeback after a one-year absence.

The ten events that Channel 4 will show live get underway in Bahrain, round two of the season, followed by Azerbaijan, Monaco, Austria, Britain, Belgium, Singapore, Japan, USA and Abu Dhabi.

"Again wasting their time showing Japan live and screwing us with midnight highlights for Canada..."

"Having spent years working with American businessmen, I have yet to meet one who doesn’t think that their way is best ... even when they drive the businesses that they have bought into the ground. It will be sad for F1 if this is what Liberty do."

"If it does become exclusive to SKY it will be the end of F1. What is Liberty doing to the sport ? I know all Americans honestly believe that the "American way" is the only way, but do we want F1 to end up like Indycar or Nascar ? "

"So there still could be free "highlights" coverage? I had misinterpreted previous announcements to mean it was Sky exclusive on all races, rather than just the live shows.

Honestly, there are some races where I wish I was watching a highlights show... might not be a bad thing in the end! :') "
