Scheduling: The 2019 Italian Grand Prix

From Spa, Formula 1’s ten teams head south to Monza for the last stop of the European leg, with the Italian Grand Prix!

After a light-weight line-up on Sky last weekend, Ted Kravitz is back with the team for their coverage from Monza. Over on Channel 4, Stefano Domenicali returns to the team after first appearing in Australia and Canada. Meanwhile, Claire Cottingham deputises for Jennie Gow on BBC Radio 5 Live.

The Formula Two and Formula Three seasons are quickly heading towards their conclusion. There are only three rounds of Formula Two remaining this year, whilst Formula Three’s season finale takes place in Russia.

All of the F1 paddock, including F2 and F3, head into Monza with a heavy heart following the fatal accident of Anthoine Hubert last weekend in Spa.

As always, the schedule will be updated if plans change.

Update on September 4th – Well, Sky Sports F1’s schedule for the weekend has radically changed. No, this is not a mistake, nor a typo, but schedules for the weekend show that Sky will be live from Friday morning through to Sunday evening.

The 5-minute fillers between sessions have gone. I do not know if this is a one-off for whatever reason, or a change of direction going forward (perhaps experimenting ahead of 2020?). Either way, the site will be updated as and when more information comes out.

Update on September 8th – An update on this, more for completeness purposes. Aside from an Ask Crofty special on Saturday with Nico Rosberg, none of the other special segments from Sky were actually live. In fact, it was the same pre-recorded material on a loop, just under a different title.
