Scheduling: The 2014 Chinese Grand Prix

After a hectic start to the season, the 2014 Formula One calendar begins to space out from now until July. After a weeks break, the paddock heads to Shanghai for the Chinese Grand Prix. Following this race, the next meeting in Spain is not until May 11th, before we get into the usual race – week off – race – week off – race format into the European season.

Bruno Senna is back with the Sky Sports F1 team for this weekend, his second appearance with the team this season, substituting with Anthony Davidson who is racing in round one of the FIA World Endurance Championship at Silverstone. I’ve added the scheduling details for the WEC below, which us live on Motors TV.

Over on BBC, alongside their TV highlights, you may notice an unfamiliar voice in the Radio 5 Live commentary booth. That is because China will be the first of four appearances for Jack Nicholls as lead commentator. At the age of 23, he will become the youngest lead commentator yet for Formula 1, surpassing Ben Edwards who currently holds that feat.
