A special edition of The F1 Show will air on January 31st at 20:00 on Sky Sports F1, it has been confirmed. The half an hour episode, entitled ‘The F1 Show Special: Motor Sport Hall of Fame’, will be filmed at the 2014 Motor Sport Hall of Fame awards on Wednesday 29th January and fronted by Natalie Pinkham. Simon Lazenby will present the awards itself.
Damien Smith, editor of Motor Sport magazine said: “The Royal Opera House is a suitably grand venue to honour some of motor sport’s greatest names and we could not dream of a better Broadcast Partner than Sky Sports. To mark our 90th birthday in suitable style, we have four true motor sport legends being inducted into the Motor Sport Hall of Fame in January. It’s going to be another memorable evening and for those not lucky enough to be present, as in F1, Sky Sports F1 will be the next best place to follow all the action.”
Good to see Sky doing things like this, and it is an expansion on the coverage last year which was within a normal episode of The F1 Show. The schedules themselves have not been updated yet (as the last week of January is also meant to feature F1 testing from Jerez), but it should not be too long before we have a clearer picture of what Sky are, and are not, doing.
