HomeSports CoverageSky announces line-up for Sky Sports F1 Channel

Sky Sports have revealed their line-up of pundits, presenters and commentators for their new Sky Sports F1 channel.

Simon Lazenby, Sky Sports rugby presenter, will host each grand prix weekend.

Former BBC Radio 5 Live presenter David Croft will join forces with [[Martin Brundle]] in the commentary box for each of the 2012’s races, with Brundle on air during every day of each grand prix, dividing his time between paddock, pitlane and commentary box. The flexibility means that former F1 driver [[Anthony Davidson]] will join Croft for commentary duties for each practice session.

[[Natalie Pinkham]] and [[Ted Kravitz]] will take on the role of pitlane reporters. Ted will also co-presenting a magazine show on the new F1 channel with Sky Sport News’ [[Georgie Thompson]].

And broadcasting veteran [[Steve Rider]] will stage a series of big interviews with racing legends of the past and present for Sky Sports.

Sky Sports Executive Producer Martin Turner said: “In Martin Brundle we have the outstanding F1 broadcaster – on the track and in broadcasting, he’s proved it time and again.

“Working alongside him, David Croft is a passionate, experienced commentator and Anthony Davidson can bring great technical knowledge to live practice sessions.”

“Ted Kravitz has huge knowledge of the pitlane and paddock and he and Natalie Pinkham will get the information and access our viewers need,” added Turner.

“And guiding us through the coverage we have the experience of Simon Lazenby and Georgie Thompson. Each has hosted major sports events, from the British Lions to the Ryder Cup – they have trust and respect.”
