ESPN Lands F1 Broadcast Rights Renewal


Formula 1 (F1) has announced a multi-year partnership extension, granting ESPN the championship’s Latin American (excluding Mexico and Brazil) and Caribbean broadcast rights through 2025.

The partnership will see ESPN’s streaming service, Star+, continue to broadcast all sessions from the 2023 championship, while fans in Latin America will be able to follow a comprehensive live coverage of all practice and qualifying sessions, F1 sprint events, and Grand Prix on ESPN channels.

In the Caribbean, F1 will be broadcasted on ESPN’s Extra, and digital ESPN Play platforms alongside the Fox Sports networks in Argentina and Chile.

Additionally, ESPN’s social media and website will host dedicated F1 coverage throughout the season.

Commenting on the partnership, F1 director of media and content creation, Ian Holmes, said: “ We are delighted to renew our partnership and continue our long tradition of  bringing top quality broadcasting to our fans in Latin America and the Caribbean.”

“Over the next three years, we will work together to honour our shared commitment of servicing our fans and ensure they continue to enjoy the entertainment and spectacle of Formula 1 for seasons to come,” he said.

ESPN VP of programming and acquisitions, Michael Walters, added: “This new agreement between ESPN and Formula 1 allows us to expand our relationship with the top category and will result in the most attractive motorsport offering, coming week after week to different corners of the continent, with exciting races to be enjoyed on ESPN and via streaming on Star+”.

This announcement comes after F1 agreed a deal with IMG for its in-ship and inflight broadcast rights.
