What can you expect from Viaplay during the F1 weekend in Great Britain?

The second race weekend of the double header is scheduled for next weekend. In Austria, the teams will start the eleventh race weekend of the season. It will also be the second sprint race weekend of 2022, which means that the broadcast schedule at Viaplay will look a bit different.


On Friday, the day starts at 1:30 PM with the first free practice session at the Red Bull Ring. With comments by Allard Kalff and Sebastiaan Bleekemolen or Nelson Valkenburg and Melroy Heemskerk, the first session of the weekend will be broadcast from 13:30 to 14:30. From 17:00, with Nelson Valkenburg and Melroy Heemskerk as commentators and Allard Kalff as race control, the qualifying for the sprint race will also be broadcasted by the streaming service. The preview will start at 4:30 PM and the session itself will be from 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM. Interviews afterwards come from Stephane Kox. The day will conclude at 8:30 PM with Studio F1: Austria Shakedown, from 8:30 PM to approximately 9:45 PM. Amber Brantsen and analysts will then look back on Friday and look ahead to the rest of the weekend.
