Motorsport-Magazin.com – Finally clarity for all Austrian Formula 1 fans: after ServusTV and ORF announced as sub-license holders in the summer of last year that they would be taking turns in 2021 and the flagship section of motorsport on TV screens in the Alpine Republic TV screens and will include 2023, it took a long time to see which races are broadcast live on which channel. Now public service and Red Bull’s own free TV private broadcaster has defined the exact broadcast schedule for its Formula 1 TV program in 2021.
The season debut in Bahrain can be seen exclusively on ServicesTV. The first race in Sakhir is for weekend 26.-28. March 2021.
