2009 saw the return of F1 to BBC Television, after an absence of 12 years, when F1 races were covered by ITV.

The new-look coverage promises to be the most comprehensive in the history of the sport, with all on-track sessions brought live through TV, Radio, Red Button, broadband and of course BBC iPlayer for any of those missed moments.

From the 2012 season, the UK TV broadcasting rights for Formula One were shared between the “free to air” BBC and the Sky Sports subscription service.

Although the BBC’s F1 contract ran until the end of the 2018 season, it decided to “reluctantly” end its Formula 1 television contract three years early as part of savings across the corporation.

The BBC initially had exclusive UK rights from 2009 until the end of the 2013 season. But because of the licence fee freeze and resultant review of cost constraints, were expected to leave F1 after the 2011 season.

A new broadcast rights deal was announced on 29 July 2011, that Sky Sports would cover all race sessions, including practice, qualifying and the races, live and in High Definition.

In November 2011, Sky Sports announced that a new dedicated F1 channel which will launch in March 2012.

Sky Sports HD F1 will air coverage of all practice sessions, qualifying and the race. Their race coverage will be commercial free.
