Scheduling: The 2017 Monaco Grand Prix

Aside from the 101st Indianapolis 500 this weekend, there is the small matter of the Monaco Grand Prix!

Channel 4 will be covering the race live, the first time that a free–to–air broadcaster has done so since 2012. Susie Wolff is back with the team in Monaco, her first appearance this season, whilst Mark Webber and Eddie Jordan will also be part of the team. Like in Russia, the channel will be on air for four and a half hours on race day. The third episode of F1 Meets airs between practice three and qualifying on Saturday, as Lee McKenzie chats to Claire Williams.

Over on Sky Sports, the race will be simulcast on Sky Sports Mix, the first simulcast on Mix since Malaysia last year. The rest of the weekend scheduling is as anticipated, with practice taking place on the Thursday, a Monaco tradition.

Outside of the F1 and the Indianapolis 500, it is a packed weekend of motor sport, with Formula Two and World Superbikes amongst the other events taking place across the weekend.

  1. Can’t fault Channel 4’s commitment this season, the longer programmes and especially the 4.5hr live shows on the Sundays are fantastic.
