  1. Once again, absurd highlight times for the UK.

      I think you need to appreciate the work that needs to be done by Channel 4 who only have a limited amount of time to show their highlights. So they need to work on the highlights of the race and program. The race starts at 19:10. Will last until at least 20:40. Then all the extra highlights which they get the best bits out of. So they will have to wait until the end of that until they can complete their coverage. Then if you look at the last live program Sky are showing which ends at 22:10, Channel 4 starts just 30 minutes after this. And they could well still be getting information to add into their highlights program for after the race to make the most of their time.

      This time may be awkward for some, but it is not unreasonable at all.

      You could maybe question the qualifying times a bit more, but still, the time gap between the live coverage and Channel 4 highlights is not very different.

      1. Or maybe C4 could show American races live and Asian races as highlights…redundant I know as F1 is going fully behind a paywall next(?) season.

  2. The respective qualifying and FP3 starting times for both this race, and the Chinese GP were postponed by an hour for this season, so why weren’t the equivalents of the Azerbaijan GP qualifying and FP3 brought forward by an hour for this season since the sessions there start a lot closer to the local sunset time than in either Montreal, or Shanghai especially the former?
