Sky Sports F1 – Top 10 ratings (week ending 14th April, 2013)

From BARB:

1 – 489k – Live Chinese Grand Prix (Sunday, 06:30)
2 – 290k – Live Chinese Grand Prix Qualifying (Saturday, 06:00)
3 – 105k – Chinese Grand Prix Qualifying Replay (Saturday, 12:30)
4 – 69k – The F1 Show (Friday, 11:00)
5 – 66k – 1993 European Grand Prix (Saturday, 08:49)
6 – 61k – Live Chinese Grand Prix Practice 2 (Friday, 06:45)
7 – 57k – Live Chinese Grand Prix Practice 1 (Thursday, 26:45)
8 – 44k – 1993 European Grand Prix (Sunday, 12:01)
9 – 41k – Chinese Grand Prix Practice 1 Replay (Friday, 15:31)
10 – 41k – Chinese Grand Prix Replay (Sunday, 12:30)

The main stand out here is the 1993 European Grand Prix ratings, over 100,000 viewers combined. Interesting as well to note that the Sunday airing made the top 10, but the preceding F1 Legends episode did not. Although I do think the series is a great strand by Sky, the choice of person (Tony Brooks) would be recognisable to very little of their current audience.

No Chinese Grand Prix airings made BBC’s top ten, but Driven: The Fastest Woman in the World (their title, not mine) scraped into BBC Two’s top ten with 1.15 million viewers.

Note: Bahrain Grand Prix overnight ratings will be on the site in the next day or two.
