Scheduling: The 2013 United States Grand Prix

The 2013 Formula One season is heading to its conclusion with the final two races of the season, starting with the United States Grand Prix. The teams and drivers make their second visit to the Circuit of Americas which provided one of the best races of the year in 2012, so let’s hope for more of the same next weekend.

Sky are screening five Classic F1 races, albeit four in highlights form in build-up to next weekend’s race. Over on BBC, there is a 5 Live special on Wednesday as Sir Clive Woodward visits Red Bull’s factory in Milton Keynes. Qualifying highlights are a bit late though, last year they were on at 21:00 on BBC Two whereas this year they are on at 22:30. I guess there is no incentive to put them on earlier given that the title race has already been resolved. I hope the combined average in the official ratings is above 3 million, but I’m not even sure that will happen.

The F1 Show is being shown live on Sky Sports 1 and F1 for some reason.
