Sky Italia’s new studio, dedicated to providing coverage of this season’s Formula One Championship has been installed with the latest robotic equipment from Vinten Radamec.
The equipment has been used as part of the channel’s live coverage and commentary from the first five Formula One races. The studio will show all 19 races, including the qualifying and practice sessions, in the 2013 F1 World Championship calendar.
