Scheduling: The 2018 Italian Grand Prix

Formula 1 heads straight from the Ardennes forest to Italy, for round 14 of the championship.

Channel 4 are showing highlights of the Monza round, with live coverage on Sky Sports F1 throughout the weekend. For those that like the added extras on Sky, you will be pleased to know the Sky Race Control from Italy onwards will be available on all devices as opposed to just the iPad.

On the personnel front, Nico Rosberg returns to Sky’s team for this weekend. Over on radio, the BBC have a half-hour special focusing on Fernando Alonso’s career on Friday evening. Into the weekend, they have truncated coverage of the race weekend, due to cricket action between England and India, and tennis action from the US Open.

Although an air-time is unconfirmed, expect Jennie Gow’s documentary featuring Billy Monger and Alex Zanardi to air on the BBC News Channel over the weekend. The documentary called Human Endeavour premieres on BBC World News at 13:30 local time next Saturday, so expect it to appear on BBC iPlayer shortly afterwards.

Elsewhere on the motor racing spectrum, the IndyCar Series heads into the final phase of its season, with the penultimate race at Portland taking place on Sunday evening.

One thought on “Scheduling: The 2018 Italian Grand Prix

  1. It’s now past the half way mark of Sky F1 2018 production, and the . On TV guide listings, many programs info button, the title comes up ‘Impossible’. That’s a first, they can’t even tell you the name of the program you are watching.
    I am now reduced to recording all the supplementary programs on the tv listing on Thursday Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The only listings that are reliable are 1st , 2nd and 3rd practice, qualifying and the main Sunday programs, anything and everything else I just record all. There is never, and hasn’t been, this season, a timing for the second Drivers Conference. I have missed them all, except last week (Spa) when I finally realized I was going to have to just put everything on record, the many repeats of the hover racing , Seb and Ted, and all the other repeated interviews and past heroes.
    This is not what I pay Sky through TalkTalk a heck of a lot of money for.
    We are over a barrel here, I’m 73, a lifelong F1 fan, (and female) this is my only hobby, (besides swimming). Unless Iwatch Channel 4, free, and get the bare bones of F1, what other way can we watch the Great F1.
    Is this a Sky problem or not. Is it TalkTalk. You must have had other viewers complaining. Can you help, either sort it out or tell me how I can sort it out please
