Sky Sports F1 is to broadcast the Porsche Supercup series live for the remainder of this season, I can confirm.
The channel from the Monaco Grand Prix weekend onwards will broadcast live coverage of every Porsche Supercup race.
Sky’s deal does not affect Eurosport’s current Porsche Supercup contract. Eurosport currently broadcast every race in either live or highlights form, and have done for many years; Sky having never aired the series live.
Live coverage of the series did initially appear in Sky’s draft Spanish Grand Prix schedules, before its removal. This time, I understand that the deal is definite, starting with this weekend.
BBC’s current 5 Live Formula 1 commentator and part-time Formula E commentator Jack Nicholls has been hired by Sky to commentate on the remaining Porsche Supercup races this season.
