F1 pens RTBF media rights extension in Belgium

French-language broadcaster to continue showing series until 2027.

Formula One has agreed a media rights extension with RTBF in Belgium until 2027.

Confirmed:

  • Four-year extension sees Formula One continue on French-language broadcaster
  • Full coverage will be offered across both linear and digital platforms through the Tipik and Auvio channels
  • Select races will also be available on La Une throughout the season

Context:

This decades-long partnership will continue for at least four more years, a longer commitment than Formula One has made to the Belgian Grand Prix. The historic race may be secure until 2025, but its long-term future remains in doubt with Formula One consistently looking further afield for new races.

Comment:

Michaella Snoeck, head of media rights at Formula One, said: “As F1 continues to grow and attract new audiences, we are delighted to extend this special relationship with our long-standing broadcast partner. We look forward to working with RTBF to further improve our broadcast offering and build a best-in-class viewing experience for fans in Belgium to enjoy the drama and excitement of Formula One.”

Coming next:

Formula One returns this weekend for the first of three consecutive race weekends, starting with the United States Grand Prix in Austin from 20th to 22nd October.
