Sky Sports announce pre-season test broadcast plans

Sky Sports have confirmed they will broadcast 20 hours of live action from the first F1 pre-season test in Barcelona next month. The coverage of pre-season comes as an extension to their package, which sees them hold exclusive rights for the 2019 season.

The 20-hours of coverage will be stretched across all four days of action in Barcelona. The coverage will start as the afternoon section of testing begins [1pm] and finish at 5pm [UK time]. A live analysis show will follow live from the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya paddock.

Pre-season testing begins on the 18th of February, with the first test ending on the 21st. Last year, running was limited in the opening test with snowfall on the track.
