Outside of the British GP being done with the C4 lineup I don't think we've had confirmation regarding the highlights. Coulthard has apparently hinted on twitter, but I loathe that site so haven't looked.

Renault looks very similar (livery wise) to last year, not a bad thing in my opinion.

Sounds like it will be the same mixture of highlights and live races as last year.

Channel 4 will continue to broadcast Formula 1 in 2019, it has been confirmed today.

The broadcaster will air the free-to-air element of the contract signed between Sky Sports and Formula One Management (FOM) in 2016, covering live coverage of the British Grand Prix, along with highlights of every other race.

Nope, only the British GP will be live, the rest will be highlights.

Last year's crap TV deal has been replaced with an even crappier one which was quickly cobbled together after the crappiest one of all (sky exclusive) was deemed too crappy.

I really might be out this year. I'm not paying for it; it's just not worth it. I don't like not seeing them live. Same goes for any sporting event.

Ah ok that article must be wrong then. I remember reading ages ago that it was going to highlights only apart from the British gp but that article implied it was the same as last year again.

Edit. Actually I read it wrong.

I read somewhere that the Red Bull livery is a one off, so it would well return to the old look before the season gets underway.

That new Merc is certainly impressive though, especially as they're the only team which seems to understand that a modern F1 car does not need a stupid looking thumb nose.

I suppose it was to be expected considering them using a special livery during testing the past few years. Shame as the special editions often look miles better than the normal racing livery. :(

One livery I can’t wait to see is Ferrari’s, rumours are they’re going for a matte finish like Red Bull have these past few years, think matte red could look really nice.

At least it won't just be Vettel taking the shine off their season then.
