Formula 1 is a notoriously tricky sport to full comprehend given the level of technical intricacies involved beyond the drivers getting in a car and driving really, really fast.


Thankfully, Sky F1's elite paddock of trusted presenters, experts, analysts and commentators will guide us all through the nuances and details of the 2024 season.

The growing legions of F1 fans are growing accustomed to hearing the excitable tones of David "Crafty" Croft waft over the airwaves, while Natalie Pinkham is a fan-favourite reported and Ted Kravitz's grid walks remain iconic – even if the celebs he tracks down fail to share his enthusiasm.

The season is under way and Sky's wide array of stars are nestled into the commentary box, around the paddock and on the grid, on hand to lead us through the action.

The 24-race calendar offers plenty of drama and this is the team who will take you through the action every step of the way. Oh, and expect plenty of one-off appearances and special guests along the way too.

More like this brings you all the details about the Sky F1 team including regular presenters and commentators.
