Following a record breaking 2022 that saw fans stream more than 115 million hours of F1 footage, F1 TV has unveiled its presenter line-up and a new package of features, as it looks to bring the drama and excitement of Formula 1 to fans around the world for the 2023 season.
This expert analysis will be provided by Will Buxton who returns as lead presenter alongside Laura Winter, Rosanna Tennant and Lawrence Baretto. Alex Jacques will lead the commentary team, supported by co-commentators Jolyon Palmer and James Hinchliffe. Formula 1 Ambassador and Channel 4 pundit, David Coulthard will also provide commentary for a number of races throughout the season and Sam Collins will return as F1 TV’s technical analyst for the new season.
Launched in 2018, F1 TV marked Formula 1’s biggest investment in its digital transformation and ushered in a new era for the fan viewing experience. F1 TV Pro offers fans the chance to follow commercial-free live streams of every race, with additional exclusive feeds, whilst the less expensive TV Access provides fan with live race timing data and full race replays.
F1 TV subscribers can watch unique camera angles and access other exciting features such as driver on-board cameras, team radios, in-depth data and behind the scenes footage. Fans also have the option to browse through thousands of hours of archival footage and relive some of the sport’s most iconic and memorable moments.
This year, several new features have been unveiled on F1 TV Pro to make the platform even better. These include:
In other features new to this season, F1 produced commentary will now feature on YouTube F1 highlights and a number of new shows will take place across a race weekend, including a new weekend warm-up show to kick start the weekend and prologue and epilogue shows for practice sessions.
F1 TV is available in 118 countries, with F1 TV Pro available in 89 countries. Following the successful launch of the platform in India earlier this month, plans are in place to launch the OTT service in several new markets throughout the year.
Ian Holmes, Director of Media Rights and Content Creation at Formula 1 said:
“Since 2018, F1 TV has grown to become a best-in-class broadcast service for fans in many parts of the world, offering unfiltered access on track and top-quality technical analysis in the paddock. This year’s exciting presenter line-up and new features further enhance the fan experience and demonstrate Formula 1’s ongoing commitment to produce premium content for our fans. As we look to expand F1 TV to new markets around the world, we will continue to explore new and innovative ways to successfully capture the spectacle and entertainment of Formula 1.’
