Sky Sports confirm Kravitz comeback to live coverage

Sky Sports confirm Kravitz comeback to live coverage

Sky Sports have confirmed that Ted Kravitz will return to their live coverage for the Chinese Grand Prix. Rumours that the pit-lane reporter had been dropped by Sky for 2019 were met with fierce opposition from fans, while his absence from the Australian GP did not go unnoticed.

Kravitz presented 'The F1 Midweek Debrief' – a joint production between Sky and F1 TV after the season-opener in Melbourne, but he was not part of Sky's live coverage, with Karun Chandhok taking over duties in the pit-lane.

He will once again be off-screen during this weekend's Bahrain GP, but growing concern that he would not feature as part of Sky's live coverage in 2019 has been put to bed.

This year is crucial for Sky, having secured exclusive broadcasting rights, meaning that free-to-air live coverage of F1 will be almost entirely removed from British screens.

A deal has been struck to air the British Grand Prix on Channel 4, with a highlights show also remaining on the terrestrial channel, but fans have been enraged by the departure of the sport from most households.

In an attempt to boost numbers, Sky have offered existing customers the chance to add Sky F1 for £10 a month, but the deal has not been met with universal approval.
