Network Ten today announced it had extended its long-term partnership of more than a decade with Formula One Management to broadcast the FIA Formula One World Championship until the end of the 2019 season.

The new deal incorporates the final year of Network Ten’s existing agreement in 2015, making the new broadcast deal five years, which is great news for Australian motorsport viewers and cements Network Ten as the home of big event motorsport.

Network Ten will be the official broadcaster of the Australian round of the FIA Formula One World Championship for the next five years. The practice sessions, qualifying sessions 1, 2 and 3, and the race – all held at Melbourne’s Albert Park – will be broadcast live, with minimum guaranteed coverage of 25 hours across three days in each year of the deal.

Adding to that, recently retired Formula 1 motor racing champion, Mark Webber, will commentate the race in 2015 and 2016, taking the Australian Grand Prix to a new level.

Network Ten Chief Executive Officer, Hamish McLennan, said: “Formula 1 is one of the great global sports and we are delighted to be able to extend Network Ten’s long and successful relationship with Formula One Management.”
