The deal, which will begin ahead of the first race of the season in Bahrain, will see fans in Latin America able to tune into ESPN for full live coverage of all practice and qualifying sessions, F1 Sprint events and Grand Prix for over half of all races in the 2023 calendar, and follow the full season via ESPN’s streaming service, Star+ (Starplus.com), which will broadcast all sessions of the 2023 championship on the platform.
Additionally, Formula 1 will be broadcast on ESPN Extra and digitally on ESPN Play in the Caribbean, and on ESPN and the Fox Sports networks in Argentina and Chile. There will also be dedicated F1 coverage across ESPN.com and social media throughout the season.
