Channel 4's Formula One schedule for 2018


Channel 4 will live broadcast 10 Formula One races in 2018, including the British Grand Prix on 8 July, the Monaco Grand Prix on 27 May and the season finale in Abu Dhabi. 

The live weekends will cover all three practice sessions, qualifying and in-depth race-day analysis. All live races will be broadcast without advertising breaks.

Channel 4 will also broadcast extensive highlights of the other 11 F1 races in 2018, with a qualifying show on Saturdays and race show on Sundays. 

All live races and highlights programmes will be available to watch live (simulcast) and on demand on All 4.

Last year, tens of millions of viewers tuned in to Channel 4’s F1 coverage as Lewis Hamilton won his fourth world title and his team Mercedes retained the constructors’ championship. 

Channel 4’s award-winning coverage, produced by Whisper Films, was frequently the most-watched programme over its time slot.

Steve Jones will present Channel 4’s F1 coverage, with expert analysis from 13-time Grands Prix winner David Coulthard, who will provide commentary with Ben Edwards. 

They will be joined by special guests throughout the season such as former F1 star Mark Webber, a nine-time race winner, former Williams test driver Susie Wolf and ex-racing driver and team boss Eddie Jordan.

Racing driver Karun Chandhok will again be technical analyst, while Lee McKenzie resumes her role as Channel 4’s roving F1 reporter.
