BBC announces 2012 F1 coverage details

The BBC announces its broadcast details for the 2012 F1 season
After Sky announced it is to launch its own dedicated F1 channel for the 2012 season, the BBC has now revealed details of its own plans for coverage of next year's championship battle.

Under the terms of the new TV deal announced earlier this season, the BBC will show live coverage of ten races during the course of the campaign with the remainder being shown in a highlights show.

The first race being shown live on the BBC will be the Chinese Grand Prix in April, with the races in Spain, Monaco, Valencia, Britain, Belgium, Singapore, Korea, Abu Dhabi and Brazil also receiving live coverage.

Those races being broadcast live will receive the same level of coverage as this season, with free practice available to view online and on the red button and qualifying also shown live.

The popular Fan Forum will also continue on the live races.

When not live, the BBC will show a highlights package of both qualifying and the races, while audio commentary of practice will be available online. Recorded highlights of the races will air at 5.30pm for European races, while those races run in the early hours will be aired at 2pm – with the highlights programme running to 90 minutes.

An announcement on the full make-up of the BBC broadcast team will be made in due course although current anchorman Jake Humphrey will remain having confirmed via Twitter that he will front the coverage again in 2012.

@Ppparkinson9 True but you didn't expect Sky to let them choose the ten best, doing to get the best bang for their buck. Sky will ruin F1 as they have football...wait and see.
