Ensure Formula 1 coverage remains on Free to air channels in United Kingdom
This petition is to attempt to secure public backing for the Government to overturn the arrangement where the FIA Formula 1 coverage has been taken up (in part) by Sky TV. Formula 1, currently aired on the BBC has attracted up to 10 million viewers and not only has a loyal fan base in the UK but also provides a significant amount of the people and technology in the sport. This peitition is seeking a review by the Government to secure the television rights of the full FIA Forumla 1 Grands Prix race series on a media that is available to one and all without the need to subscribe to a specific provider. Namely a free to air UK available television channel.
