      Pat Symonds joins Sky Sports F1 team

      Sky Sports has added chief technical boss, Pat Symonds, to its Formula 1® commentary line-up ahead of the 2017 season.

      Sky Sports F1® coverage has been boosted by a new addition to the on-screen team, with leading technical officer Pat Symonds coming on board for the new season. One of the most highly respected and experienced technical bosses, there are few better experts than Symonds to explain how this year’s new cars will make races faster and more exciting than ever before.

      Symonds joins Sky fresh from three years at the helm of Williams’ technical department. He has won four world drivers’ titles with Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso, and three constructors’ titles throughout four decades working at the top of the sport.

      Fresh out of his role as Chief Technical Officer at Williams, Symonds will provide expert analysis on what is set to be one of the most thrilling and unpredictable seasons to date on Sky Sports F1®. He will provide commentary on a selection of races throughout the year, starting with the 2017 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix, exclusively live on Sky Sports.

      Sky Sports Head of F1®, Martin Turner said:"Pat will make a brilliant addition to our team, bringing a wealth of experience to Sky Sports F1®. His knowledge, expertise and passion will add another dimension to our analysis and enhance the viewing experience for fans as they seek to understand the new cars and regulations. In this era of Formula 1 there is no-one better to explain it.”

      Symonds will join Sky Sports F1’s® unrivalled team of experts, now boasting a multi world championship winning technical officer and a world champion driver in Damon Hill. He will also work alongside Martin Brundle, Johnny Herbert, Simon Lazenby, David Croft, Natalie Pinkham, Ted Kravitz, Rachel Brookes, Paul Di Resta and Anthony Davidson, who complete Sky’s talent line-up.

      Pat Symonds commented: "I have always been impressed with the quality and innovation of Sky’s F1® coverage. It feels like a really exciting time to join the team ahead of such an unpredictable season and with all races being shown in UHD, it will be even more visually dramatic at every turn."

      Sky Sports F1® will show all 20 races of the 2017 FIA Formula One World Championship™ with ten races exclusively live including the opening two from Australia and China, and two of the final three races.
