From BARB:

1 – 475k – Live Singapore Grand Prix (Sunday, 11:00)
2 – 238k – Live Singapore Grand Prix: Qualifying (Saturday, 13:00)
3 – 95k – Live Singapore Grand Prix: Practice 3 (Saturday, 10:45)
4 – 73k – Live Singapore Grand Prix: Practice 2 (Friday, 14:15)
5 – 69k – Singapore Grand Prix Qualifying Replay (Saturday, 17:00)
6 – 69k – The F1 Show (Friday, 18:30)
7 – 58k – Live Singapore Grand Prix: Practice 1 (Friday, 10:45)
8 – 57k – Porsche Supercup: Italy (Sunday, 11:17)
9 – 55k – Porsche Supercup: Belgium (Saturday, 12:10)
10 – 53k – Live Singapore GP2 Sprint Race (Sunday, 09:35)

Not a bad set of figures there, in particular The F1 Show did better than usual in the Singapore Grand Prix weekend. I’m more interested though in how last Friday’s (28th September) edition did, it surely should be close to breaking 100k considering the Hamilton and Perez news earlier in the day. The race programme you may argue was poor, but I noted in my overnights ratings piece the competition, in the officials, the football from 13:00 to 15:30 had 2.07 million on Sky Sports 1.

Further down, the GP2 sprint race only just made the top 10, although Sky Sports would have probably been hoping for more than that for GP2. Hopefully they will promote it more next year.
