Nicholls and McNish to remain with BBC 5 Live for 2017

Jack Nicholls and Allan McNish are to remain with the BBC for the 2017 Formula One season, it has been confirmed.

Speaking to Henry Hope-Frost at the AUTOSPORT show, McNish said that he would be continuing his Radio 5 Live commitments in 2017. McNish said that he hoped to commentate on around eight or nine races this season, a similar number to last season.

McNish said: “5 Live has been good fun because it’s a very tight knit group. Last year it was busy, I did eight or nine races and I’m hoping to roughly work out the same number to fit in with the other schedules. I really enjoy it, so I’ll be back in the chair talking about it with a bit of passion.”

Update on February 8th – Jack Nicholls wrote the following on his Twitter this evening: “Contract signed and flights booked for Melbourne for another season with #BBCF1, every F1 race live on @bbc5live”
