ESPN expands F1 coverage via ESPNU

ESPN is expanding its coverage for next weekend’s Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix with the addition of more televised on-track action.

For the event from Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, viewers will be able to watch coverage of the first two F1 practice sessions of the weekend on ESPNU. For the first four races of the season, coverage of the first two practice sessions was only available for viewing on ESPN3 via the ESPN App.

The third Spanish Grand Prix practice session, qualifying and the race will air on ESPN2. The race and qualifying telecasts, presented by Mothers Polish, are airing commercial-free.

ESPN’s expansion plan coincides with the launch of F1’s own over-the-top streaming service, F1 TV.
