Formula 1® content illegaly transmitted by beoutQ

It has come to our attention that certain Formula 1 content from the 2018 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™ has been illegally transmitted by the channel known as beoutQ operating primarily within the MENA region.

beoutQ has not acquired any rights from Formula 1 to transmit coverage of the FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP.

Formula 1 takes intellectual property infringement of this nature extremely seriously, we are looking in to the issue and those that are involved and will take appropriate action.
