Sky Sports has signed an exclusive partnership rights agreement with Formula 1. 

The broadcaster has exclusive rights to F1 in the UK until 2029 and in Germany and Italy until 2027. This extends the partnership which was first established in 2012 when Sky Sports first acquired the F1 rights. 

As part of the deal, Formula 2, Formula 3 and the Porsche Super Cup will also continue to be shown on Sky Sports F1, while Sky’s audio commentary will be available in more than 80 markets. All home races are simulcast on the FTA channel, suggesting a possible Grand Prix in Germany. 

Sky said the 2022 season would average 1.7 million viewers, a 60% increase on the start of the UK exclusive deal in 2019. This season’s average audience in Italy is 1.5 million (20%), while Germany’s audience has increased by almost a quarter this season.

Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali said: “We are incredibly proud of our long-term partnership with Sky, and we are delighted to announce that we will continue to work together until 2029, which is a very important commitment for Sky. In our relationship in 2012, we both strived to bring Formula 1 excitement, emotion, and drama to its traditional fans while engaging a new and more diverse audience. Formula 1 has grown tremendously in recent years, and I can’t think of a better partner to continue to provide our fans with dedicated, expert, and in-depth coverage. Sky provides fans with not only live coverage but also behind-the-scenes access and content that brings F1 to life. We are very excited about the partnership and the future of the Formula 1 journey.

It’s driven by new younger and female fans, which is awesome. sports More than 80 countries continue to enjoy our world-class analysis and content on one of the world’s most exciting sports.
