Sky Sports confirm Indy 500 scheduling

During today’s IndyCars race programme on Sky Sports F1, it was confirmed that that Indianapolis 500 race on Sunday 27th May will air at 16:30 live on Sky Sports 4. What’s interesting here, though, is that on the same day is the Monaco Grand Prix, from 11:30 to 16:30 live on Sky Sports F1.

For a race billed as “the greatest motor racing spectacle”, why is it on Sky Sports 4? Secondly, it would make far more sense to put it on Sky Sports F1 given the core Indy 500 audience would already be watching that channel. I imagine that 99 percent of the IndyCar Series viewers in the UK also watch Formula 1. So putting the Indy 500 race on the same channel as the Monaco Grand Prix surely would be a logical decision? It seems someone on the Sky Sports hierarchy disagrees…
