Make F1 a listed event that must be shown on Free to Air TV
Formula 1 has been shown on Free To Air television since it was first broadcast, and has a massive following with UK viewers. The majority of teams are based in the UK and employ a larger number of people. Since the BBC took over coverage in 2008 from ITV, TV audiences have grown ad reached an all time high and this has been recognised with a BAFTA award. Formula 1 should be placed on the protected list of sports, the first Formula 1 race was held in Britain and the British public deserve to watch every Qualifying and Race live on Free to Air television.
