BBC and Sky confirm Formula 1 broadcast schedule for 2015
7th January 2015
The BBC and Sky have announced their broadcast schedules for the upcoming Formula 1 season.
This season, Sky will have exclusive live rights to 10 grands prix, including the season-opening Australian Grand Prix.
The BBC will be showing the British Grand Prix live, and will broadcast four of the last six races of the season live. The races that the BBC does not show live will be broadcast in edited format later in the day.
"Like all F1 fans, we can’t wait for the 2015 season," Ben Gallop, the head of F1 at the BBC, said. "With Lewis Hamilton as world champion, F1 in Britain is in a great position and we’re delighted with our race package."
Sky Sports F1 executive producer Martin Turner said: "All eyes are on world champion Lewis Hamilton and Sky Sports F1 will be the only place to follow every race of his title defence.
"There are so many exciting story lines next season and we’ll cover every twist and turn from Australia to Abu Dhabi."
