Scheduling: The 2014 Hungarian Grand Prix

It’s the last Formula One race before the Summer break as the field head to Budapest for the tight and twisty Hungarian Grand Prix. As always, the race will be live on Sky Sports F1, with extended highlights across the BBC. For the full schedule, click the links below…

Thursday 24th July

Saturday 26th July
Sunday 27th July
Wednesday 30th July
Classic F1

Due to the Commonwealth Games, highlights of qualifying are on BBC Two. Highlights of the race are on BBC One, albeit in an 80 minute slot, so clearly someone at the BBC is banking on a dull Hungarian Grand Prix! Lee McKenzie is again not with the BBC team due to the games, and will be back with them in Belgium.

There are two other changes to note. The first note is that Hungary will be Jack Nicholls’ second race in the Radio 5 Live commentary box, taking James Allen’s position. Nicholls, as of September, will also be heard during Formula E’s television coverage as lead commentator alongside Dario Franchitti. Over on Sky Sports F1, Bruno Senna will be making his third appearance this season with the team. All of the details you need are listed below…

Classic F1 on Sky Sports F1
Sky’s schedules do not go beyond August 15th, so anything beyond the 15th, I will include in the Belgium schedule piece. As you can see, there’s no themes during the Summer break. I’m more likely to watch (or keep track of) classic F1 if there was a running theme, as I’ve said before. Throwing on random race after random race seems like a complete waste to me.
