In 2015 – LIVE coverage of every F1 Practice, Qualifying and Race in HD on Fox Sports

I’ve personally loved every minute of the coverage Network Ten have provided F1 fans over the last couple of years.  Since the broadcast of Qualifying and the move to live races, you can’t help but agree that we’ve come a long way since the delayed overnight coverage days.  This years, things go up a gear with Fox Sports and Ten joining forces on the Aussie rights.

The Fox Sports announcement says it all “FOX SPORTS has further bolstered its investment in premium motor sport by today announcing a new broadcast rights agreement with Foxtel, the Ten Network and Formula One Management, driving every event of the Formula 1 calendar to FOX SPORTS for the next five years.”

“Under the unprecedented new agreement, FOX SPORTS will broadcast all 20 events in the FIA Formula One World Championship Race Calendar LIVE and in High Definition — including every practice, qualifying and race — a first for Australian viewers, beginning with the 2015 FORMULA 1 ROLEX AUSTRALIAN GRAND PRIX in Melbourne on March 12. The Ten Network will continue to show 10 Formula 1 races during the 2015 season, simulcast LIVE with FOX SPORTS.”

What I read into that is – Channel Ten/One won’t be showing Qualifying, but will continue their commitment to Live race coverage – that’s good for all AussiesUPDATE: As I got too excited about all the sessions, I glossed over the fact that Ten will only show Ten of the rounds! So if you want to see races, you’ve gotta have Fox – or you might miss the good stuff!

For the hard-core fans of F1 though – Fox Sports is going to be something awesome.

I can’t wait to watch every session – bring on Season 2015 and go Daniel Ricciardo!
