Don't know what sky is playing at, unless they're trying to tempt people into adding skyf1 to their package, had to watch the Chinese GP highlights on ch4 (yuk) when the previous two were on Sky1 as well.

Think it's more likely a time of day thing Ian, the first 2 were early in the day races for British TV audiences, they were probably trying to keep viewing numbers up for advertisers.

Baku and European races fall into more mainstream times so they find it easier to meet the promised figures for advertisers without giving out freebies.

Could also be like you say, they were trying to tempt some to pay for following races.

They usually do it a couple of times a year as a marketing wheeze.
