DAZN Secures Formula 1 Rights Extension

Formula One (F1) has announced a new multi-year partnership extension, granting streaming platform, DAZN, the series’ Japanese broadcasting rights through 2025.

The partnership will see DAZN stream all 23 race weekends including practice and qualifying sessions, race highlights, F1 Sprint events, and Grand Prix for Japanese fans.

In addition to broadcasting the FIA Formula 1 Championship, DAZN will also stream both Formula 2 and 3 championship races, alongside the popular F1 support series, the Porsche Supercup.

Commenting on the partnership, F1 director of media rights and content creation, Ian Holmes, said: “Japan is a historic market for Formula 1 with some of the most passionate fans in the world, and we are delighted to announce this partnership with DAZN for them to continue to broadcast Formula 1 for the next three years.”

“As Formula 1 continues to grow and attract new fans in Asia and around the world, it is vital that the broadcasting of our events is of the highest standard,” he said.

DAZN Japan executive VP, Manabu Yamada, added: “DAZN Japan is fully committed to showcase the entire excitement of Formula 1 by not only broadcasting all sessions live, but through our original multiscreen viewing “F1 ZONE” where fans can watch multiangled views from the racetrack as well as from driver POVs and live data all in one viewing.”

“We look very much forward in bringing many more exciting seasons of Formula 1 to our fans,” he said.

DAZN will also broadcast three days of full coverage of pre-season testing in Bahrain, ahead of the season opener on March 5.

This announcement comes after Mercedes F1 entered a partnership to create unique fan experiences.
