When the Formula 1 racers last drove around the steep corners of the Nürburgring in 2013, Sebastian Vettel was able to secure first place in the Red Bull Renault with a second’s lead over Kimi Raikkonen. Since then, the German races have been held in competition every year at the Hockenheimring, which is a good 200 kilometers away.
After tough negotiations, the race director of the legendary Nürburgring was able to get the race back on its own track. The expectations are correspondingly high – also to Sebastian Vettel, who recently did not look too good in the Ferrari team.
The private broadcaster RTL has been broadcasting every race and qualifying of Formula 1 on free TV since 1991. However, the broadcaster has now announced that it has not bought any rights for the coming 2021 season. In Germany, the fastest league in the world can only be seen on the pay TV channel Sky. This year, however, you can still watch the races on RTL. And on Youtube, as the video platform has now announced.
Formula 1 on Youtube
The “Grand Prix of the Eifel” at the Nürburgring will be broadcast on RTL, Sky and the official YouTube Formula 1 channel. From October 9th to 11th, the platform will broadcast the training sessions, qualifying and the race live. The channel currently has almost 4 million subscribers. It is quite possible that this number will skyrocket before the race in about two months.
It also remains to be seen whether the racing driver Sergio Pérez will be back in the cockpit of the pink racing point car – the Mexican currently has to sit out the British Grand Prix on the Silverstone Circuit due to a positive Covid 19 test, such as the “World” reported.
