Channel 4 in talks with Sky over showing Hamilton and Verstappen title decider

Latest Episode | Cut To The Race Podcast

There have been many rumours about where people will be able to watch the final race of the Formula One season on Sunday.

The Times has reported that talks are under way between Sky and Channel 4 over sharing the rights of the race.

The finale in Abu Dhabi will be the deciding factor for who wins the World Championship – Lewis Hamilton or Max Verstappen, who are both currently level on points in the drivers’ standings.

It would be a record eighth title for Lewis Hamilton if he goes on to win.

Sky currently holds the live rights to the race, but apparently sources close to Channel 4 (which currently has the highlights rights), have told The Times that initial talks have been held with the satellite broadcaster about the possibility of showing the race live on terrestrial TV too.

Another possibility is apparently being discussed between Sky Sports and F1, is to make the Sky race day build-up free to watch via YouTube. However, this wouldn’t include the race.
