Your Grand Prix Weekend with F1 TV
The show starts on Thursday with a new look Weekend Warm Up, where news and insider gossip is shared from the paddock via the F1 TV presenting team of Will Buxton, Laura Winter, Laurence Barretto and Rosanna Tennant.
This season’s grid reshuffle means there are new faces on track we need to get to know: American rookie Logan Sargeant has joined Williams; Nyck de Vries, who impressed on his one-off appearance at Monza last year, has been snapped up by Alpha Tauri; and Oscar Piastri will race for McLaren after a tug-of-war over his services.
Plus we’ll want to keep a close eye on how Fernando Alonso gets on at Aston Martin, Nico Hulkenberg at Haas, and the all-French pairing of Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly, who fought each other hard in karts and now find themselves under the same roof at Alpine.
Friday: Setting up the cars and analysing the running
Usually, Friday coverage is focused on Free Practice 1 and 2 but as this is a sprint weekend, we head from FP1 straight into qualifying for Sunday’s race. Alex Jacques leads the commentary team with IndyCar racer James Hinchcliffe and in select races F1 Ambassador David Coulthard. F1 TV guides you through the key stories with driver analysis from Jolyon Palmer and engineering insights from Sam Collins including Tech Talk.
F1 Fantasy players take note of Friday performances and interviews to see who’s looking hot and who’s not before you make your transfers for the weekend.
Saturday: Qualifying knockout and live timings
Saturday is all about qualifying, and in Baku we will head straight into a Sprint Shootout to determine the grid for the Sprint itself later in the afternoon. Last year’s top pole scorer was Charles Leclerc. Will Ferrari power still have the edge on Red Bull on Saturdays?
