    The BBC has revealed its coverage plans for all Formula 1 races in 2012.

    Ten races will be shown live on BBC One, including the British, Monaco and season-ending Brazilian Grands Prix.

    Of the other 10, there will be extended highlights programmes on BBC One, of either 90-minute or two-hour duration depending on race location.

    Races in the Far Eastern time zone will have highlights broadcast on BBC One at 1400, with those in the European time zone getting 90 minutes at 1730.

    The BBC's coverage of all the live races will be as extensive as ever, with all the action on and off the track across TV, radio, online, red button and mobile.

    There will be full live coverage of both qualifying and race on BBC One, BBC One HD and the BBC Sport website, plus a one-hour evening highlights programme on BBC Three and BBC HD.
    For these races, all three practice sessions will be shown live on the red button and the website.

    Keith Collantine always finds a better way of laying things out. :)
    It's really funny how BBC have got the boring Tilkedromes - Shanghai, Valencia, SK and Abu Dhabi, and also Cataluna (chicane was designed by Tilke).
    Still, I've got Sky Sports 1 & 2 so hopefully they have a service where I can login to the website and watch it there (seeing as the TV is dominated by someone else).
     
  4. There goes my F1 coverage... Damn, you big money.

    Strategy Mister!

    Darn was hoping the bbc would get the more interesting race tracks, but it went to sky :(
     
  6. I miss it like crazy but I haven't watched F1 since this was first announced and I won't watch again until it returns to normal FTA TV from the robbing B4stards at Sky :mad:
     
  7. Just get a Aussie proxy and watch it from one.com.au

    Or get a slightly naughty stream of the Sky feed. I won't say any more for fear of being banned.
