Sky’s The Limit For SuperSport F1 Coverage On DStv

As Formula 1 evolves, so does SuperSport with confirmation this week that DStv viewers will get to enjoy the expert analysis and commentary provided by Sky Sports’ world-class team.

The deal includes broadcasting the Sky Sports race build-ups which feature some of the most acute minds in motorsport.

In recent days, chief technical boss Pat Symonds, who spent three years at the helm of Williams’ technical team, joined the commentary line-up, ensuring viewers understand the mechanics of racing at elite level.

Symonds comes equipped with massive expertise. He won four world drivers’ titles with Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso, and three constructors’ titles.

SuperSport will now tap into a formidable commentary team that also includes former world champion Damon Hill, Martin Brundle, Johnny Herbert, Simon Lazenby and Natalie Pinkham.
“Sky Sports’ innovation and quality has always impressed me,” said Gideon Khobane, CEO of SuperSport. “It’s the perfect time to integrate our Formula 1 presentation given how vibrant and exciting the recent season was. Few sports look as good as F1 in High Definition, so there’s plenty to look forward to.”

Apart from the race action, every practice and qualifying session will be broadcast live on the World of Champions.
