Scheduling: The Korean Grand Prix

Formula 1 moves on from Japan to Korea, for the Korean Grand Prix as the first of the three dual fly-away races conclude. Like China earlier this year, this is only one of two Asian based races that are live on BBC and Sky.

As noted in the Japan schedule, BBC Radio 5 Live’s team will be Jonathan Legard, Sam Bird and Jennie Gow, whilst over on Sky, Damon Hill will be absent from proceedings again. Georgie Thompson will also be back in London, with Mark Blundell joining her on the Sky Pad. I think that is his first appearance with Sky this year.

I haven’t done a poll for a few races, so below is a poll for those reading to vote on: which channel will you be watching?

Unfortunately, MotoGP clashes with the Formula 1 this weekend as the MotoGP is from Motegi, however, the race should finish by about 06:45, and the Formula 1 race starts at 07:00, so it is not quite a direct clash between the two. Below are all the times you need, including “Britain’s Next F1 Star“…
