ITV will not show qualifying for the United States Grand Prix live on any of their channels. Qualifying will appear delayed on the digital channel ITV4 at 6pm on Saturday evening, repeated at 00.45am in the morning on ITV1 for the large numbers of viewers who only have analogue television.
It appears that the qualifying is not being shown live because ITV do not wish to cancel or postpone “You’ve Been Framed Kids Special” or “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?” on ITV1. They could show it on ITV2 or ITV3 which are showing film and sitcom repeats, but apparently won’t. It is being shown on ITV4, but as this channel cannot come on air until 6pm, it will be delayed.
What a shocking lack of commitment to the millions of loyal Formula One fans in the United Kingdom.
