After a five-year break, the Monaco Grand Prix will be shown live on terrestrial television in the UK, on Channel 4, giving access to a wider audience.
Since 2012 the iconic race has been exclusively broadcast on Sky Sports after BBC lost the rights. Channel 4 and Sky will split live race coverage in 2017, and in total Channel 4 will show ten Grands Prix live, with an agreement in place to broadcast delayed highlights of the ten remaining races.
Stephen Lyle, Channel 4 Head of F1 said: “Following a thrilling first year covering Formula One, we’re delighted to reveal our schedule for the 2017 season. Once again our team will bring extensive coverage of every race with the Monaco Grand Prix, Great Britain and the finale in Abu Dhabi among our ten Live race weekends.”
Mr Lyle added: “It’s a particular delight to welcome Monaco back to terrestrial television Live, for the first time in five years.”
