How can this dire coverage continue?
The way the deal between the BBC and Sky is structured sees the BBC pick three races that they want to broadcast live. Then Sky get to pick three races that they will broadcast live. Then the BBC get to pick three more, and so on and so forth. They always pick the British and Monaco Grands Prix in their first selection, plus one other (I’m not sure which one they took this year). This leaves Sky free to pick the first three races of the season, if that’s what they want.
Of course, the BBC could always pick the first three races of the season – but then you’d probably be complaining that Sky got to broadcast certain events like Silverstone and Moanco.
