The BBC wins rights to UK Formula One coverage

The BBC wins rights to UK Formula One coverage
Formula One Administration Limited’s Chief Executive, Mr Bernie Ecclestone, announced on Thursday that UK Formula One coverage will return to the BBC in 2009, taking over from current rights holder, ITV.

“I am delighted to conclude this new deal with the BBC,” Bernie Ecclestone said. “I wish to thank ITV for their commitment to Formula One and the high quality of their coverage. It is an exciting time in Formula One and the BBC has some innovative new ideas to consolidate and expand our UK fan base.”

The BBC lost the rights to Formula One coverage at the end of the 1996 season, after which ITV took over.
