Part of the first test for the 2019 F1 season will be broadcast live.
The channel has exclusive live broadcast rights for every round of the 2019 F1 season, apart from the British Grand Prix, which will also be shown on the free-to-air Channel 4.
Further details of testing coverage by broadcasters in other countries is yet to be confirmed. However as Formula 1’s direct streaming service F1 TV uses Sky’s commentary team for its English coverage, the feed could be made available to its subscribers as well.
The opening test will be the first of two four-day tests for the team ahead of the season-opening race in Australia on March 17th. So far four teams have announced details of their planned launches ahead of the test.
