Scheduling: The 2015 Spanish Grand Prix / Monaco ePrix

Formula 1 returns to action in May after a break following the four flyaway races with the Spanish Grand Prix. The action is exclusively live on Sky Sports with highlights on BBC television. It should be noted that, due to the 2015 general election, the BBC schedules could change at short notice in the event of a hung parliament, so it is worth keeping an eye out as the weekend approaches.

The BBC Radio team are without Jennie Gow for at least the first two days of the weekend, with Suzi Perry down to do the radio preview show on BBC Radio 5 Live. Gow has other commitments, with round seven of the 2014-15 Formula E season from Monte Carlo. As of writing, no details are available concerning ITV4’s studio line-up for Monaco.

Below are all the details for Formula E and the F1, along with BTCC and IndyCar action from Indianapolis…
