How to watch motorsport this weekend in the UK: F1, MotoGP & Indycar

This weekend sees a whole host of motorsport take place across the world, with Formula One, MotoGP and Indycar being the three headline events.


It will be an early start for UK viewers looking to tune into Formula One as racing takes place in Australia.

Free Practice One begins at 2:30 am, with the second Free Practice session starting at 6am, with both sessions taking place on Friday.

The third and final practice session also beings at 2.30 am on Saturday morning, with the light at the end of the pitlane going green at 6 am.

The Grand Prix itself will begin at 6 am on Sunday morning, with the checkered flag coming out before the majority of alarm clocks have gone off in the UK.

Sky Sports F1 will broadcast the race this weekend, with Sky customers available to watch qualifying for free on Sky Showcase.


The early start for Formula One means that there will be no clash with MotoGP as its second race weekend of the season gets underway.

Racing this weekend is in Argentina, with Friday’s practice day beginning at 2.45 pm for MotoGP, with Practice two at 7 pm in the UK.

Saturday is the qualifying day, but before that, there is a final practice session at 2:10 pm, with qualifying starting at 14:50 pm. The second qualifying session will begin after a ten-minute break at 15:15 pm.

Then we have the Sprint in the evening, with that session at 7 pm.

The warm-up for the race begins at 1:45 pm on Sunday, with the race itself taking place at 6 pm in the evening.

BT Sport 2 will be the home to coverage of MotoGP this weekend.


The final event taking place that we cover here on The Apex Motorsport is Indycar, with racing this weekend at the Texas Motor Speedway.

This weekend will be a two-day event, with practice starting at 2 pm in the UK, with the qualifications session beginning at 5:15 pm.

Then after a short break, the high-line session starts at 6:45 pm, with the final practice beginning after a short break at 7:30 pm.

The PPG 375 race on Sunday beings at 5:10 pm in the UK, which means that there will be an overlap with the MotoGP race for anyone wanting to follow both.

Sky Sports F1 will be the home to racing this weekend, while in the past it has been on Sky Sports Action.


We should add the caveat that schedules and broadcasters are subject to change, so make sure you check before the session begins to make sure you are in the right place.
