The Formula 1 organization is in talks with Amazon, can you also look at F1 like that?
Watching Formula 1 in the Netherlands is done via an F1 TV subscription or via Ziggo on your television. Perhaps there will be a third opportunity to see Max Verstappen live in action. Formula 1 CEO Chase Carey has confirmed to be in talks with Amazon about granting rights to the US company.
Formula 1 and Amazon
It would be a huge deal for Amazon to obtain these rights. For F1, this is not the first time they have been in conversation with a streaming service. On Netflix you can watch the F1 documentary Drive to Survive that was made with the permission of Formula 1. Two seasons, covering the 2018 and 2019 season, are currently available on Netflix.
All that since Formula 1 has been in the hands of Liberty Media, the company wants to increase the exposure of F1. They did this, among other things, with the launch of F1 TV and the collaboration with Netflix. This deal with Amazon also helps to get Formula 1 to a larger audience. Especially in the United States, where F1 is not yet as big as in Europe, there is a lot to be gained. (via Financial Times)
