Sky Sports is set to travel to Red Bull’s Milton Keynes factory to clear the air following their fallout in Mexico last month.
Red Bull enforced a blackout on the British broadcaster after taking issue with how it spoke about the team through its shows and segments.
The matter came to light after Red Bull was made aware of comments delivered by Ted Kravitz, who stated that Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton was “robbed” of the 2021 title.
Red Bull insisted that Kravitz’s comment, which was made at the US Grand Prix, was not the sole reason for its boycott – rather it was the final straw for the team.
According to the Daily Mail, personnel from the Sky Sports production team are set to travel to Red Bull’s factory on Monday to draw a line under the scenario.
Red Bull is set to return to communications with Sky Sports in Brazil this weekend, after not providing interviews following qualifying and the race last time out in Mexico.
Russell teases Red Bull over boycott
Mercedes’ George Russell teased Red Bull at the weekend regarding the boycott that was implemented by the team.
F1 hosted a launch party in Las Vegas ahead of next year’s inaugural Las Vegas Grand Prix, with Sky Sports commentator David Croft interviewing some drivers in front of a crowd.
Russell quipped to Croft when asked if he was allowed to ask Sergio Perez (who was also in attendance in Las Vegas) questions at the event: “Yes, I am tonight. I’ve got special permission, so don’t start on me!”
After Croft asked Perez if he was allowed to answer, the Mexican driver said: “They [Red Bull] are not here!”
Sky Sports currently holds rights to broadcast F1 exclusively in the UK and Ireland until 2029, having recently extended its deal with the sport.
Why? Most of the audience agree with Kravitzs comments. Most of the audience think the FIA is consitently messing up badly with its decisions, not being transparent enough and is damaging the sport. Horner loves accusing everyone else, but doesnt like it back. The only people who lose out by Red Bull boycotting Sky, are Red Bull themselves. Leave them to it if thats what they want!
I agree with you 100%. Verstappen acting like a baby because he knows he was given 2021 championship on a platter. The arrogance that spews from Horner and Verstappen is beyond listening to anyway so the broadcast is much better without them.
Guys, the rest of the world is not British. Not only do we think Max won, we think he is a better driver, BUT so are a lot of others.
Except… thats not what we’re discussing here!
But you did discuss it here. In your original post you referred to the FIA’s decision making, which is integral to the 2021 title argument, and in your reply to yourself you allege that Verstappen was given the title, precisely the point of dispute between Red Bull and Sky Sports, due to the latter’s promotion of that concept. Evidentially, then, we are discussing that here, and you, like many others on your side of this argument, and indeed of the leftist political persuasion which seems to largely align with those others, are simply seeking to shut down any opinions which run counter to your own by declaring them inadmissible to the argument. The reason for this, obviously, is that, as is generally the situation with arguments made by leftists, your case does not hold water.
Thats not my reply. Thats someone else called Dean
Whichever one you are, you still discussed it.
Please sing it out loud for them to hear…. crying babies that can’t get over the past!
Thank you for the always good nice Blog! Have a great daY.’
