Sky Sports F1 – Top 10 ratings (week ending 16th December, 2012)

From BARB:

1 – 6k – Legends (Saturday, 14:30)
2 – 6k – Legends (Saturday, 15:30)
3 – 5k – Brazilian Grand Prix Highlights (Friday, 21:00)
4 – 4k – Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Highlights (Thursday, 21:00)
5 – 3k – Malaysian Grand Prix Replay (Saturday, 16:00)
6 – 3k – Belgian Grand Prix Highlights (Monday, 21:00)
7 – 3k – Bahrain Grand Prix Replay (Sunday, 16:00)
8 – 2k – Korean Grand Prix Highlights (Wednesday, 21:00)
9 – 2k – Chinese Grand Prix Replay (Sunday, 10:00)
10 – 1k – Legends (Saturday, 18:00)

I was not expecting a BARB update today, but in any case very low ratings now we are firmly in the off-season and presumably their lowest ever weekly reach with a reach of 234,000 viewers. Over on Motors TV, the Race of Champions had official ratings of 18,000 and 23,000 viewers, up marginally on the overnight ratings, although it was not the highest ratings on the channel, that honour going to the Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix which had 34,000 viewers.

One thought on “Sky Sports F1 – Top 10 ratings (week ending 16th December, 2012)

  1. With all the endless repeats, there will be some people that will lack the usual enthusiasm for the start of the new season.

    I believe there will be many more posts on various forums pre-season, stating the contributors lack of interest in the 2013 season … I remember when 20 races were announced, many people said then that was too many and their interest might wane, well when those 20 races are on an almost endless loop, it seems looking at the above figures, even a channel supposedly aimed at the dedicated F1 fan can’t get above a few 1000 viewers.
