Formula 1 on Channel Four in 2019
Channel 4 took over the BBC’s F1 broadcast rights from the 2016 season, after the BBC “reluctantly” decided to end its Formula 1 television contract three years early as part of savings across the corporation.
In 2019, Sky Sports will have exclusive live rights for F1 in the UK, (ore information on Formula 1 exclusively on Sky Sports here ). Under this deal, Channel Four will show highlights of all Qualifying and Races. The British Grand Prix weekend will also be shown live on Channel Four. This is currently a one year deal, so may change for the 2020 season.
