F1 2017: Four Grands Prix in five weeks as title run-in intensifies
It’s a month that could go a long way to deciding the destiny of the 2017 world titles as the F1 paddock travels east for the Malaysia and Japanese GPs and then, after a brief pit-stop back in Europe, west for the races in the USA and Mexico.
All four race weekends are live on Sky F1 – with the Japanese and Mexican GPs exclusively live on the channel. And you can watch them all for only £33.99 with a NOW TV month pass – no contract needed!
Lewis Hamilton holds a 28-point title lead over Sebastian Vettel but the season-long Mercedes v Ferrari battle remains tight and delicately poised with six rounds to go.
F1’s long-hauls also mean a return to early and late start times for UK viewers.
October’s F1 race start times
|Date||Grand Prix||UK race start|
|Sunday October 1||Malaysia GP||8am|
|Sunday October 8||Japanese GP||6am|
|Sunday October 22||United States GP||8pm|
|Sunday October 29||Mexican GP||7pm|
While Malaysia (8am race start) and Japan (6am) will require some early-morning Sunday alarms, you can watch the USA (8pm) and Mexico (7pm) in evening prime time.
Four races in five weekends is an F1 fanatic’s dream – just make sure you don’t miss any of the action!
And that’s not all. There’s also Premier League and international football, a Rugby League Grand Final, Champions Cup rugby, NFL, Grand Prix Darts and lots, lots more to look forward to with a NOW TV month pass for October.
