    Why is this site not showing channel 4 times this year? With it being the most expensive year so far (without any deals) for users that don’t always use sky, this year they are even more likely to watch the highlights in the UK.

    I’ll do my bit:

    Qualifying: 18:30 – 20:00
    Race: 19:30 – 22:00

    Really disappointing that they are not shown any more as if sky has totally taken over. Botht this year and last channel 4 have been allowed to show a larger percentage of the race highlights which is why their program is now 2 and a half hours rather than just 2, so there is enough content in this to make it worth mentioning here!

    1. @thegianthogweed I always come here looking for the channel 4 times as that’s all I’ve watched for the last few years as I refused to bow to sky’s monopoly.
      As with you I find frustrating that they’ve totally been ignored this year. It’s as though they want us to forget there is a free option out there if you’re willing to wait a few hours post live times.

      Please keep posting the channel 4 times for future reference. Thanks.

    2. Got to agree with Ben.
      Keith, if this is now a Sky influenced site and no longer fully independent, please have the courtesy to say so.
      If it is still an independent site then it would be nice to have an explanation why Ch 4’s times are no longer listed.
      You have normally been very good at explaining when this site takes a particular point of view.

    3. Thanks Ben. I always thought Race Fans supported free-to-air coverage but this decision to ignore C4 times flies in the face of that belief, as well as being properly inconvenient. I suppose that’s one less page to visit the site for.

      1. @thegianthogweed @jimn Hi all, thanks for your feedback. I stopped running the Channel 4 highlights times as I didn’t think anyone was using them. Clearly you are! So as you can see I’ve added them back in.

          I now feel sorry for such negative feedback, but it soon was updated and the comments were listened to, so many thanks for that!

          I still would question why people would not be using the channel 4 information. Not everyone will want to pay for sky.

        2. Thanks Keith!

    Totally agree with previous comments regarding C4 coverage. I found this feature very useful last year and i wont be visiting this website in the future if C4 coverage times continue to be omitted.

  3. Thank you for including the times for Eastern Standard Timezone.
    This weekend is going to be fantastic for motorsports. WEC at Spa, Indycar at Texas, MotoGP at Jerez, and F1 at Algarve.

    1. @mittens He’s done that since Bahrain 2018. For some reason, he treats Eastern NA differently from every other time zone, North American, or elsewhere in the world, though.

  4. C4 is the only way I can watch the races.
