SiriusXM‘s coverage of F1, which will use the BBC Radio 5 feed with commentary from Jack Nicholls, Tom Clarkson and Jennie Gow, starts with qualifying from Circuit of The Americas this Saturday and will continue for the remaining four events on the 2017 F1 schedule. For 2018, SiriusXM will air every grand prix on the calendar.

Coverage is available via satellite radio and also the SiriusXM app. 

Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s president and chief content officer “Formula 1 races are sensational, world-class events, which showcase the most advanced automotive technology in the hands of exceptional drivers competing on very challenging circuits,” said.  “We are very excited to deliver the excitement of these races to SiriusXM listeners across the country. 

“As Formula 1 makes its way around the globe, we will bring its fans in North America to each international venue and enable them to follow the action live.”

F1’s managing director of commercial operations, Sean Bratches, added: “We are delighted to have Formula 1 back on SiriusXM. Their ability to offer live coverage of all races throughout the Championship to their numerous fans and listeners provides tremendous additional exposure for F1 in the North American market.”
