Sky Sports confirm Ted Kravitz will remain for 2019 F1 coverage

Sky Sports confirm Ted Kravitz will remain for 2019 F1 coverage

Sky Sports have confirmed that much-loved pit-lane reporter Ted Kravitz will remain part of its live broadcast in 2019. Amid intense speculation that Kravitz would not be part of Sky's line-up, the hashtag #WheresTed trended on Twitter and a petition was launched online.

Concern over Kravitz being reportedly removed from his role sparked incredible concern, with a sinister side also emerging as Sky recruit Karun Chandhok was subjected to abuse on Twitter by a bone-headed minority.

However, Kravitz's idiosyncratic style will once again form part of Sky's output this year after he was confirmed as part of the punditry team alongside the likes of world champion Damon Hill and Jenson Button.

2019 will be a crucial year 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.
