Sky Sports F1 – Top 10 ratings (week ending 24th March, 2013)

From BARB, a day late due to Easter:

1 – 771k – Live Malaysian Grand Prix (Sunday, 06:30)
2 – 356k – Live Malaysian Grand Prix Qualifying (Saturday, 07:00)
3 – 174k – Malaysian Grand Prix Replay (Sunday, 12:00)
4 – 136k – Malaysian Grand Prix Qualifying Replay (Saturday, 13:00)
5 – 85k – The F1 Show (Friday, 10:00)
6 – 65k – GP Uncovered (Sunday, 11:32)
7 – 65k – Live Malaysian Grand Prix Practice 1 (Thursday, 25:45)
8 – 65k – Live Malaysian Grand Prix Practice 2 (Friday, 06:00)
9 – 55k – Live Malaysian Grand Prix Practice 2 Build-Up (Thursday, 29:45)
10 – 51k – Malaysian Grand Prix Practice 2 Replay (Friday, 15:35)

The trend here appears to be that while the Race and Qualifying live figures are down on last year, the replay figures are up on 2012 which cancels out the loss a little bit. The F1 Show performed well on Friday morning, as did GP Uncovered, but GP2 fails to make the top 10, thanks to no daytime repeats on Sky.

No ESPN ratings unfortunately, but the IndyCar ratings along with other bits and bobs are in the Malaysian weekend overnight round-up, located here.

  1. 300k people watch qualifying. I still miss the days of 3 super sticking tyres and if you crashed the car you got to use a spare.

    modern qualifying bores me!!!

    • There was a 26+% drop in Sky viewers for qualifying, that looks bad, but it’s better than the colossal drop they had for Australia.

  2. Not forgetting that the live sessions have been early morning UK time when we get to Europe we’ll get a truer picture
