Channel 4 have confirmed their presentation line-up for their next three live Formula 1 races. Speaking at the top of their Chinese Grand Prix qualifying show, presenter Steve Jones confirmed the line-up for the Spanish, Baku and British rounds of the 2016 championship.
Joining Jones and David Coulthard in Spain will be four-time champion Alain Prost and Susie Wolff, Spain being Prost’s first appearance with the Channel 4 team.
Eddie Jordan will return to Formula 1 punditry at the European (Baku) Grand Prix, Jordan duelling his Top Gear and F1 duties this year. As you would probably expect, the British Grand Prix will feature a stacked line-up from Channel 4, with Wolff, Jordan, Mark Webber and Murray Walker all appearing as part of their coverage.
The three remaining pundits, Bruno Senna, Nicholas Hamilton and Alessandro Zanardi were not mentioned by Jones, although there is some confusion about the exact involvement the latter will have.
No further details have yet been confirmed but as the above shows, Channel 4 are certainly putting their rotating punditry to full effect as the year progresses.
Update on May 2nd – It was confirmed during Channel 4’s Russian Grand Prix highlights programme that Webber and Jordan will be part of Channel 4’s line-up for the season finale in Abu Dhabi.

Didn’t Zanardi say that he hadn’t signed anything with Channel 4 F1?
Although the C4 press office kept to the original line about him appearing so I think he will appear in some VT features, but no more.
