Well after thinking i would only be able to see delayed C4 coverage the race is on Sky 1 live. bet those people who have paid extra for the Sky F1 channnel are beginning to wonder why they agreed to pay a monthly fee.

I realise that I could be over-thinking this, especially as it's only the second race but watching my recording of the qualifying highlights programme from channel 4 this morning I felt very conscious on the restrictions they have put upon them by Sky.
One positive thing I noticed was that Billy Monger appears to be getting far better in front of the camera.

Yes I thought similar on both counts. But nothing will convince me to spend money on the current product.

I don't think Sky 1 are showing every race and don't you need to be a Sky subscriber to access any of Sky's content?

Yes but most Sky subscribers have Sky 1 without needing to pay extra to get SkyF1.

Watching Sky coverage for the first time in years. What the hell has happened to Martins gridwalk?

We've spoken to nobody of any value as Martin runs around looking for the Crown Prince, who will also have nothing of value. Leclerc was nice but said absolutely nothing useful. David Beckham is wandering around with Guy Ritchie as Martin ID's them wrongly and starts interviewing Guys bodyguard (Ritchie needs a bodyguard? What?).

This is dire. Are they going to bring back Mark Blundell when he's not busy being at the back of a BTCC grid?

Sky 1 forms part of the basic Virgin Media package, and I would assume it is also available to other providers such as BT and TalkTalk.

Yes but Sky 1 aren't showing every race, though having the occasional race is possibly a good way of enticing the casual viewer to part with more money and get Sky F1.

I know it will not be every race but it was a nice surprise to see it live. Will not be paying the monthly fee so most will be delayed coverage on Channel 4

Well nice surprise to catch this live, but man Sky's coverage is poor. Martin's gridwalk was 1 driver, 3 celebs, a bodyguard and a hunt for someone not a single person watching could give two hoots about. Simon Laserdisc and Crofty haven't a clue.

It's only the first 3 or 4 that are on Sky1. It's clearly intended to induce customers to sign up to the F1 channel.

All Sky customers get Sky1 as part of the required basic package before any of the sports channels can be added.

After my initial worries about the Channel 4 coverage of qualifying I still decided to get up early today and watch my recording of the race highlights programme. (9 - 11 o'clock on a Sunday is just too late for me to wrestle for control of the TV. But, I think this will work well for me, getting up for work 1 hour early meant that by fast-forwarding through the adverts, and some of the other padding I still had time to watch my local news & weather as usual before heading off to work).
I thought that the coverage was excellent, helped no doubt by the race being good I'm sure. Once more young Billy Monger was impressive with his insight during the race, and questions afterwards. I was glad that I had time to watch the post-race part of the show as that was also very good, there appeared to be a genine fondness between the C4 guys & Lewis Hamilton, plus the other interviews were worth watching.
2 races into the new season & new way of F1 coverage in the UK and I'm feeling a lot more positive about things.

I watched it on Albanian local TV. Couldn't understand the commentary and you can't hear the pit to car radio. That said I could understand the track action, which was quite good, so no worries.

My first time watching F1 on sky this weekend, having bought a NowTv pass for the week. Have to say I was very impressed with the coverage and extremely pleased with my choice of live race to watch. I do agree with you Akrapovic though, Martin's grid walk was awful. I think the next race I will watch this way will be Baku, although I have missed David Coulthard.
