Here is the calendar for the F1 season which may help you guys plan your passes. There are sizeable gaps between some race weekends (eg. there is a full month between Hungary and Belgium).

Yes the season is 9 months long. There is also some large gaps between
races. If, like me, you only want to watch f1, all 21 races can be viewed
with just 7 monthly passes at £25.
Races 1,2 & 3 1 pass. Races 4,5 & 6. Then 7,8 & 9. Then 10,11 & 12. Summer
break. 13,14,15 & 16 another pass. 17,18 & 19 another. Then the last one to
cover races 20 & 21. You could even cover the last 2 races with 2 £10 week
passes to save another £5 if you really wanted too.
As long as you cancel the renewal before the end of the month you'll be
fine. You might even get offered deals to stay which may work out even
cheaper.
Hope you find this useful.

As pointed out by Gerry in a similar thread, the British grand prix is free on Channel 4.

So it is possible to cover the season with 5x month passes and 4 weekly passes for £165.

 

Thanks to Gerry.

Re: F1 pass from £150 to £195? 30% YoY?

Am I being a bit dim, but does the £195 offer only cover Sky Sports F1 channel, I.e. only one channel or all 11. It's just only F1 is mentioned in all the blurb whereas I would have thought it would be a selling point to say you get all 11 for football etc? Just seems unclear to me (a newbie) - nowhere does it mention '9 months of Sky Sports' or similar only references are to F1. If it is only F1 channel I cannot see it being anywhere near worth it... as per everyone's previous comments and considering quite a few are free on Channel 4 (assuming this is still case this year). May be tempted if football & cricket etc covered too but not will to complete until I am sure!! Thanks.

Many thanks. No longer shared live coverage through Channel 4 - well I guess that explains the price hike!

How did you work out that a monthly pass is £25 per month, I've got it as £33?

 

Thanks
