The 2014 British Grand Prix on TV is held at Silverstone on Sunday 6th July. You can watch live coverage of the British Grand Prix on BBC, as well as extensive coverage on Sky Sports F1, including all practise and qualifying sessions.


The BBC and Sky Sports will share TV coverage of Formula 1 in the U.K, with the BBC showing live coverage of half of the races including the Chinese, Spanish, Monaco, European, British, Belgian, Singapore, Korean, Abu Dhabi and Brazilian Grand Prix. The BBC will also show live F1 practice and qualifying sessions from these races. BBC will broadcast extended highlights of races they don't cover a few hours after the live event. BBC Radio 5 Live will continue its full coverage.

Sky Sports are relatively new to Formula 1 TV coverage, having won a 7-year deal for the TV rights up until 2018. With their own F1 channel (Sky Sports F1), they will show every race, practice session and qualifying live.
