In general: RTL ended the Formula 1 broadcast after around 30 years. If you want to watch the premier class of motorsport on TV in 2021, have to switch to Sky. That costs additional money, but it’s worth it – especially in 2021. Mick Schumacher (everything about his career!) is new here, Sebastian Vettel drives Aston Martin instead of Ferrari and Red Bull could Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) really heat it up.
