As expected, Sky Sports are not planning to add presentation to the GP2 or GP3 Series for the European rounds and it seems are (like with GP2 in Malaysia and Bahrain) only taking the World Feed coverage, with commentary from Will Buxton and Jerome d’Ambrosio. As reported on this blog last month, Johnny Herbert will be back with the Sky Sports F1 team for Spain through to Britain.

UPDATE on 9th May: Have added the Thursday Press Conference to the schedule above.
