F1 on BBC2 on Sunday (Euro GP TV times)

Here are the details of the BBC’s live video coverage of the European Grand Prix and the F1 Fanatic live blogs which will take place during all five sessions this weekend.

At present the BBC’s timetables indicate the race will be on BBC1 as usual on Sunday. However due to the situation in a Prominent International Football Tournament(TM) the race is likely to be on BBC2 instead – in England at least – as admitted by presenter Jake Humphrey today.

Regardless of what the BBC are doing we’ll have our 100% F1-focused live blogs running at the usual times!

If you would like to help run the live blogs this weekend please get in touch by emailling me, using Twitter or leave a comment below.

    Probaly wont be around for the race, anywhere i could watch a replay later (im from ireland) so no BBC Iplayer.

    This is confusing as I just set the qualifying and the race to record on the Sky+ app for my iphone and they are both listed as being on BBC 1.

    Surely they won’t change it this close to air.

    Normally I’d kick up a fuss with regards to Football encroaching on my sacred F1 time.

    But its only Valencia so I’ll let it slide this time.

  4. I hope they make a decision quickly, as I need to record the GP and won’t be at home from tomorrow. I can’t miss it :(

    As long as we know which one to switch on, I don’t see it makes any difference.

    I’ve NEVER understood the politics between what appears on BBC1 vs BBC2. Everyone, everywhere can receive both so why should beeb1 be seen as the flagship, while lesser programs are relegated to beeb2?

    (I’m sure someone will say the answer is historical, going back to the 1960s)

      Me too. I really don’t get the UK outrage when a program is on BBC2 instead of BBC1. I won’t lose sleep over it…

      • Adrian said on 24th June 2010, 12:31

        I think the only issue here is for people who want to know what channel to record…

        …I’m away for the weekend so have series linked it, which hopefully will pick up any change of channel…if not…iPlayer…

        I think it’s only TV people that get upset over it, if it was between BBC1 and BBC3 I could understand it but it’s pretty childish as it is.

    • Dianna said on 24th June 2010, 19:39

      More people watch Football than F1.Fact.The majority wins.

      • Jose said on 24th June 2010, 23:36

        True, what is the problem with it being on bbc2? as long as they show it i dont really care where it is

  6. Due to MotoGP qualifying from Assen, FP3 won’t be available to Freeview viewers this weekend by the looks of things.

  7. PJA said on 24th June 2010, 12:55

    The England football team not winning their group means not only do they have arguably a harder match in the next round but that it clashes with F1.

  8. Icthyes (@icthyes) said on 24th June 2010, 13:28

    Again? What are the BBC playing at? It’s confused my Sky+ enough times already, and I depend on a technophobe to set it right!

  9. Steve K said on 24th June 2010, 17:20

    I’m sure the BBC deal us like ESPN and ESPN2 in the states. If you have the right cable provider both are in HD and there is no difference, one network is just older than the other.

    Speed TV should have Sunday’s race on at 7:00am Central Time Zone

    • Scalextric said on 24th June 2010, 21:51

      Yup, tape delayed, but not on Speed where I am in the US, it’s on Fox. (9am PST).

    • Jagged (@jagged) said on 24th June 2010, 22:14

      The next 3 races are not on Speed but are being shown tape-delayed on Fox at Noon eastern, 9AM pacific. Speed will still have coverage of FP2 on Friday and Qualy on Saturday.

    Not a big deal. Won’t be losing sleep over it ;)
