  1. Is this the first time support races have been listed? I don’t remember seeing so many here before.

    It’s a great piece of information for the weekend though. Thanks.

    Would it be possible to make the F1 session bold so they are easier to find?

    1. I tried that but didn’t like the look of it.

      1. It’s the first GP3 of the season, so that’s why there are more races

        Or maybe have a slightly different background colour for the Grand Prix entry in the table.

  3. Sky just had the Spanish GP Driver’s Conference Live (2PM UK – 9AM EST). They will rebroadcast it at 7PM UK – 2PM EST, 8:30PM UK – 3:30PM EST and 11:15PM UK – 6:15PM EST. Fun Fernando imitation from Vettel: You must all the time leave space…

  4. Yes oh yes!! European season how I’ve missed you. No more staying up till 4am for FP1, FP2 etc.

    Can’t wait!

  5. Keith, is there something in the contract between sky F1 and the BBC where it states when doind simulcasts that sky must have a 10minute head start? Because it looks like that to me, but just wondering if it’s actually in the contracts. Interesting.

    1. I doubt it @timi The BBC only used to join the FP sessions 5 minutes before in previous seasons. Nothing has changed there. Sky having a dedicated channel affords them the freedom of going live earlier with a broadcast team, not just commentary.

      1. @andewtanner Ahh right. Okay, thanks for that!

  6. Yes, GP2 and GP3!

    I may actually miss live qualification for F1 due to a family party but I’m hoping a combination of laptop, 3G and Android WiFi Hotspot will alleviate any issues.

  7. re. “Find times for every F1 session this year and all the 2012 race dates with the F1 Fanatic Google Calendar.”

    Is there a link to that Google Calendar on the home page?
