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.

BBC Sport would cover 10 Grand Prix races live including the British Grand Prix and show highlights of the other 10.

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

In 2016 it was announced that Sky Sports would broadcast F1 exclusively from 2019 in the United Kingdom. The broadcaster announced that they will show every race live from 2019 to 2024 after agreeing a new deal with Formula One Management. The British Grand Prix remains live and free-to-air, as will highlights of every race and qualifying session. Furthermore, at least two ‘prime time’ races will be shown live on Sky Sports Mix. Sky have also announced that from 2017, every race will be shown live in Ultra HD via SkyQ.

Bernie Ecclestone said “I am delighted that we will continue to work together. Sky’s commitment to the Sport and standard of coverage is second to none.”
