Take a look at the Sky Sports and Channel 4 F1 commentators and presenters for the upcoming 2023 season.

The 2023 F1 season is finally here with the Bahrain Grand Prix kicking things off on Sunday 5 March. Drive to Survive season 5 is barely in the books meaning a whole new wave of F1 fans will be tuning into this year’s races.

Sky F1 is the home of Formula 1 in the UK with broadcasts of every race in 2023 on their specific F1 channel. Meanwhile, the highlights from the grid of all 23 races this season will be shown on Channel 4.

The BBC used to show 10 races live each season, but ended its deal three years early in 2015 due to budget cuts. Channel 4 took over and will continue to show the highlights from qualifying and each grand prix in 2023, while also televising the British Grand Prix free-to-air.

How to watch the 2023 F1 season in the UK

UK viewers can watch the 2023 F1 season in two ways: Sky Sports and Channel 4. Channel 4 is available to anyone with a TV license, while Sky Sports F1 is available to Sky TV customers.

However, you can also watch live in the UK via NOW TV. A monthly Sports Membership subscription gives access to 11 Sky Sports channels – including Sky Sports F1 – or there’s a Sports Day package for 24 hours.
