The extension of the partnership with Formula 1® means RTL will continue to broadcast all practice and qualifying sessions, F1 Sprint events and Grands Prix with commentary in Luxembourgish across RTL Zwee and RTL Play for the next three seasons.
Since acquiring the rights to broadcast the FIA Formula 1 World Championship™ in 2021, RTL Luxembourg has been hailed for its strong coverage across RTL television and the digital platform, RTL Play.
Serge Pauly, commentator and coordinator of Formula 1® at RTL says:
"Our team of commentators, made up of Franky Hippert, Tom Hoffmann, Dominique Riefstahl and myself are very proud to continue this extraordinary journey with the most exciting motorsport competition in the world. We are really looking forward to continuing to share the exciting live experience of each Grand Prix with the huge fan base in Luxembourg."
Steve Schmit, Content Director RTL Luxembourg:
"With the arrival of Formula 1® in 2021, RTL has strengthened its position as the leading sports broadcaster in Luxembourg. The new agreement for the next three seasons will help us continue to develop a free TV offering that is almost unique in Europe. Thanks to Formula 1®, we succeeded in increasing our ratings among all target groups, including the younger audience."
Michaella Snoeck, Head of Media Rights Formula 1®:
"As the 2023 season draws to a close, we are delighted to announce F1 has renewed its partnership with RTL Luxembourg for another three seasons. We look forward to strengthening our partnership with RTL and providing our passionate fans in Luxembourg with the best-in-class viewing experience they deserve."
From next season, all 24 Grands Prix of the 2024 FIA Formula 1™ World Championship™, including qualifying sessions, F1 Sprint events and Grands Prix, will be broadcast live on RTL Zwee and on RTL Play with commentary in Luxembourgish. All events will be available for 7 days in replay on RTL Play.
