Formula One has signed a three-year broadcast partnership extension with Disney-owned ESPN covering Latin America and the Caribbean.
- Latin America and the Caribbean will continue to receive ESPN coverage until the end of the 2025 season
- Linear broadcasts will be split between ESPN and Fox Sports networks in Argentina and Chile
- ESPN's Star+ streaming service will carry coverage of sessions
- ESPN Extra linear channel and the ESPN Play streaming service will offer Formula One coverage in the Caribbean
- Contract excludes Mexico and Brazil
Context: ESPN inherited the Formula One rights in Latin America when it acquired 21st Century Fox in 2019. Fox agreed a five-year deal with the global motorsport series in 2018, the year prior to Disney closing its acquisition of its rival media company.
Comment: Ian Holmes, director of media and content creation, said: “ESPN’s broadcast of Formula One over the years has enabled the sport to increase its global reach and attract a new and diverse fan base. 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.”
Coming next: ESPN's team of reporters will continue to produce specialised coverage across multiple platforms, including a dedicated Formula One podcast.
