DOWN UN­DER?

FOR­MULA 1 IS BACK, AND WE’LL HAVE ALL THE AC­TION

Motor Sport News - - Sporting Scene -

For­mula 1 is back with this week­end’s tra­di­tional opener in Aus­tralia, and prop­erly this time. No more test­ing, F1 is on the telly­box, live.

To warm-up, Sky Sports F1’s Clas­sic Races should get you in the mood with two in­stal­ments of retro Aus­tralian clas­sics. Start with the 2010 event (Wed­nes­day, 2100-2315hrs) where one half of a Bri­tish­driver tag-team – Jen­son But­ton – stormed to vic­tory in the Mclaren MP4-25.

Fol­low­ing up is some­thing a touch older, the 2003 grand prix, which was also won by a Brit in a Mclaren; it was David Coulthard’s last For­mula 1 vic­tory (Thurs­day, 2100-2245hrs).

Rally fans, don’t panic. There’s some­thing in the guide for you too. The BTRDA started with a bril­liant opener on the Cam­brian Rally last month and con­tin­ued last week­end with the Mal­colm Wil­son Rally. Watch high­lights on Mo­tors TV (Fri­day, 2135-2205hrs).

Fi­nally, have a watch of Mo­tors TV’S Stop and Go pro­gramme, which fea­tures some of the best ac­tion from the pre­vi­ous week on the sta­tion (Satur­day, 1905-1925hrs).

But­ton tasted Oz glory in 2010
