Sky Sports F1 have announced that their coverage of the Hungarian Grand Prix in July will feature so-called 'F1 juniors' as part of the broadcast.

For the event at the Hungaroring, three young fans will join the established presenting team alongside the likes of 2016 World Champion Nico Rosberg, NASCAR racer Danica Patrick and regular presenter Natalie Pinkham to host 'F1 juniors' coverage.

The trio of children – Zac, a go-karter, and current kids' TV show FYI presenters Braydon and Scarlett – will try their hand at interviewing drivers and commentating on the action.

There will also be a regular offering on the coverage, while the 'F1 juniors' broadcast will feature a dedicated International Feed from F1, including sound effects, special features and 3D augmented graphics.

"We want to ensure that our fans of all ages can enjoy and fall in love with Formula 1, so working with our long-standing partners at Sky on this project to target younger audiences is really exciting," explained F1's Director of Media Rights and Content Creation, Ian Holmes.

"This is a first of its kind in motorsport and I am excited to see the broadcast come to life and to watch the next generation of presenting talent!"

The idea had previously been trialled by Sky on their Premier League coverage in January on a game between Brentford and Liverpool, which ended in a 3-1 win for the home side.
