F1 renews RTBF deal

Formula One renews partnership with RTBF

October 21, 2023

Formula One has announced a multi-year renewal of its partnership with French-language broadcaster RTBF (short for Radio-télévision belge de la Communauté française), which will therefore continue to broadcast F1 in Belgium until 2027.

For the next four seasons, RTBF will remain the go-to place for Belgium-based F1 fans, who will be able to follow all the Practice sessions, Qualifying sessions, Sprint events and races across all race weekends on the “Tipik” and “La Une” channels. 

Michaella Snoeck, Head of Media Rights, Formula One, said:

As F1 continues to grow and attract new audiences, we are delighted to extend this special relationship with our long-standing broadcast partner. We look forward to working with RTBF to further improve our broadcast offering and build a best-in-class viewing experience for fans in Belgium to enjoy the drama and excitement of Formula 1.

Benoît Delhauteur, Head of Sports, RTBF, added:

We’re very pleased to extend this historic partnership with Formula 1. Our priority is to maintain the widest possible sports offer for all our audiences. F1 is precisely the sport with which we can reach all age groups, and particularly younger audiences. What’s more, we’re finding that we’re watched on Auvio and Tipik by a more female audience than for our other sports broadcasts. Naturally, the Drive to Survive documentary was one of the reasons for this renewed enthusiasm. 

But it’s far from the only reason. Our audience success is also due to the quality of our commentary and coverage, on all our platforms. In addition to qualifying and the live Grand Prix, our Warm-Up program is very popular, as are our digital sequences and our podcast, Pilotes. Extending our contract with F1 means continuing to tell a story that fascinates a very large number of people in French-speaking Belgium.
