Chandhok returns to Sky F1 pundit team in 2019

Popular former F1 driver Karun Chandhok will join the Sky F1 team from next year as the broadcaster bolster their ranks ahead of the 2019 Formula 1 season which they will flight on their channels.

The 34-year-old race driver turned pundit contested 20 grand prix races in total, doing ten races with HRT in 2010, and another ten with Team Lotus a year later. He made a final appearance in the top tier at his home Indian Grand Prix in 2011.

Sky announced on their website: “Karun Chandhok will return to the Sky Sports F1 team in 2019. The former F1 driver was part of Sky’s live coverage between 2012 and 2014 and rejoins the channel’s line-up ahead of the new season, which begins with the Australian Grand Prix on March 17.”

Chandhok, who became a father recently, said of his new venture, “I’m very excited to be rejoining the Sky Sports F1 team from the 2019 season. With their long-term commitment to Formula 1 and the team of people that’s in place, it’s a great time to return.

“I believe that I’ve been able to develop and offer viewers a unique perspective of someone with a technical, strategic and historical knowledge of the sport combined with the experience of 18 years of driving racing cars.”
