Formula 1 on TV: RTL celebrates F1 comeback as early as 2021

RTL is celebrating F1 comeback as early as 2021

RTL will broadcast the four free-to-air races that Sky has granted Formula 1.

Khonor turn at RTL. As ABMS learned from sources close to RTL, the Cologne-based private broadcaster will also broadcast Formula 1 races in 2021.

RTL bought four GPs from rights holder Sky Deutschland, which the private broadcaster will broadcast on free-to-air television. These four Free TV Grands Prix are included in the Sky’s rights package and may be assigned.

RTL exit despite Mick Schumacher

The U-turn is astonishing because RTL only left the premier class in June 2020 after 30 years. “The competition for TV rights has changed, the market has partly overheated and thus left the ambitious, yet economically justifiable framework that we have set ourselves,” said RTL managing director Jörg Graf at the time, justifying the decision to exit – although with Mick Schumacher the next young German star knocked on the door of the premier class.

It is not yet known which four of the planned 21 races will be broadcast. But that the four “cornerstones” of the past decades should form the framework of the four transmissions. In other words: Christian Danner and Heiko Wasser will comment on the races as usual, Florian König will moderate and Kai Ebel will keep the paddock busy as a kind of jack-of-all-trades.
