Despite the concerns and doubt surrounding this weekend’s Bahrain GP the race is on, and to help plan your weekend here are all the TV times for both Sky and the BBC.

The race is live only on Sky Sports F1 this weekend, but you can always try BBC 5 Live radio coverage, which has been excellent so far this season.  You can read about our thoughts on the TV coverage for Australia, Malaysia and China too.

No matter how you watch the GP this weekend, let’s hope for a safe but exciting race.  Going by recent Bahraini grands prix, it has a lot of work to do if it’s to match the excitement and thrills produced by the first three races of the 2012 championship.
