Until 2020, Formula 1 ran on free TV on RTL. After 30 years, however, the broadcaster lost the rights to broadcast Formula 1. In 2021 and 2022, RTL secured a sublicense for four Formula 1 races and showed them on free TV. As of this season, RTL has finally left.
Sky decided to show some of the races on their homepage and YouTube for everyone to watch freely. These include, among others, races in Spain and Hungary.
