Scheduling: The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

From India, F1 heads to Abu Dhabi for round 18 of 20 in the 2012 Formula One season. Both BBC and Sky are live for this one, so full coverage is available from both sides.

On 5 Live F1, James Allen and Jaime Alguersuari are not with them this weekend, so it is John Watson alongside Jonathan Legard for the weekend. As is normal during live BBC TV weekends, however, Ben Edwards will be in the box too for practice 1, which I believe will be the first time since their A1 Grand Prix days that Edwards and Watson are commentating together!

  1. Seems to me that Sky has more adverts/breaks when they aren’t competing with a live BBC race.

    I may be wrong but would be interested to know whether you or other blog readers have noticed?
