Scheduling: The 2014 Brazilian Grand Prix

It is strange to be going into the penultimate race of the season with the championship up for grabs, and yet calling it a dead rubber. But thanks to double points, it is indeed a dead rubber. Nevertheless, the Brazilian Grand Prix may well still have an effect on which Mercedes driver the championship is awarded to. Sky have exclusive live coverage, but the good news is that BBC’s highlights programme is on in the middle of primetime, on BBC One! Considering it follows directly after Strictly Come Dancing, I’ll be very interested to see how it rates.

Elsewhere, it is the MotoGP season finale exclusively live on BT Sport 2. I’m surprised to see this on the same weekend as an F1 race, however there is no direct clash so there is not much of an issue with it. Below are all the details you need…
