McNish to return with Sky in July

Allan McNish has been confirmed as an expert analyst for the three F1 grands prix in July.
Allan McNish will become a more regular fixture on Sky Sports' F1 coverage in the next month, continuing to stand in for the injured Anthony Davidson as one of the broadcaster's expert analysts.

With Davidson still laid up after the Le Mans accident that left him with a broken back, McNish will reprise the role he took on at the recent European Grand Prix and appear for all or part of the forthcoming races at Silverstone, Hockenheim and the Hungaroring.

The Scot, who finished second at Le Mans with Audi last month, will join the regular Sky Sports team for all three days of the British Grand Prix this weekend [6-8 July], the opening day in Germany [20 July] and the entire Hungarian weekend [25-27 July].

McNish admitted that, while he has no plans to hang up his helmet just yet, working on the other side of the camera is something that has always interested him, and he intends to make the most of the opportunity with Sky to explore a possible future in broadcasting.

McNish is a natural infront of the camera, unlike Damon. As far as I know Damon was always meant to be a part-time thing, but I'd be surprised if he's not at Silverstone! McNish showed at his first session in Monaco that he's a better analyst than Herbert or Hill
