Some elements of this text to consider:

  • Sky Sports is a British media outlet and this article was published before the upcoming British F1 race at Silverstone.
  • The sectoin of text right after the video (starting with “Formula 1 is coming home this weekend…”) contains a number of words (famous, spectacle, bumper crowd) that highlight the “must-watch” event.
  • The text contains a fair amount of details about the F1 season so far and a casual F1 fan will be caught up by reading it.
  • Since Sky Sports broadcasts the F1 race the company has a vested interested in building up anticipation for the race to increase viewership
  • The text ends with a complete broadcast schedule as Sky Sports broadcasts not only the race but numerous other related programs during the race weekend.
