I'd have thought some sort of different design actually proves they are such a B team, basically they're testing two sorts of nose cones

Details of Sky's testing coverage:


Live television coverage on Sky Sports F1 of the first pre-season test at Barcelona will begin on Monday February 18 at 1pm and will continue until 6pm.

Sky F1 will also be broadcasting live coverage on Tuesday February 19, Wednesday February 20 and Thursday February 21 between 1pm and 6pm.

Our live review show, Welcome to F1 2019, will begin at approximately 5pm on every night of the test.

Selected highlights from the day's broadcast will be available on Sky Go, On Demand and the Sky Sports digital products.

A dawn-to-dusk live blog will also be available on the Sky Sports digital products for every day of winter testing, along with features, insight and reviews from Barcelona.

Regular updates from Barcelona will be published on our social accounts, while Craig Slater will be delivering live reports from the Circuit de Catalunya for Sky Sports News.

------------------------

Hopefully the evening review show will be a little like Ted's Testing Notebook, which I notice isn't mentioned. Hopefully he's on it.

Oh and Williams are missing the opening day as they're not quite ready yet.

4.5 hours of ad free coverage today, not a lot to report other than no Williams tomorrow either and the Alfa front wing does appear to be unique, maybe they’re testing alternative Ferrari tech but Ferrari aren’t running it.

Looks like Ted Kravitz has gotten the tin tack from the new head of Sky after a falling out, with Chandok his replacement.

Bit gutted at that really as he was one of the best things about the coverage, especially the Notebooks, and Chandok is just bland. I haven't even bothered watching the testing thanks to the lack of the Notebook roundup. I tried the review show but it was rubbish.

The F1 2019 Thread

Why replace him? He was great, I was hoping he was just taking the first test off for family.

Test 2 is this week coming right? I ask because SkyF1 still aren’t listing it

Gutted if they have canned Ted, really liked his stuff.

Big mistake imo, he must have plenty of good relationships across the paddock, such as with Vettel. That'll be hard to replace.

Phew looks like Ted is staying with Sky, he retweeted their lineup a few hours ago.

Well that’s a relief, if anyone needs to go it’s seems it’s this Young.

Now what’s going on with the second test? It’s still not listed on Sky, not even a post session review.

I posted a deal, they're doing 3 months for £20 a month atm. I guess they might then do another deal because the footy has finished

If they are adding IRL it at last looks value for money, not that I have to pay more than my HD fee of course

Just seen the 2019 SkyF1 ad and it looks like they’ve pinched a theme tune

Australian GP next weekend is also being shown on Sky One, both qualifying and the race.

Still getting worried about Ted, I’ve preset all the Sky+ recording and his notepad is not there. Just watching the making of the ad show and they show the “full team” sans Ted but then this was filmed in January.

As long as he's there for the races I'm happy.

Anyone watched the Netflix series yet? I've seen the first two and nothing particularly juicy so far. It's a bit glossy PR outside of rhe behind the scenes stuff.
