Channel Ten and its sports off-shoot, ONEHD, have improved Australia's coverage of Formula One substantially over the last few years. However, the excellent coverage provided by the host broadcaster BBC TV cannot and will not be matched for Australian viewers while a commercial provider has the Australian broadcast rights.
SBS or ABC would provide an excellent solution to the poor state of Formula 1 television broadcast rights in Australia. Australian Formula 1 fans have suffered long enough, and it is time the world's most watched form of motorsport had a suitable home on Australian Free-to-air television.
We, the fans of Formula 1 in Australia, want to see the same level of coverage as that provided by the host broadcaster BBC TV.
We sign this petition as a display of support and commitment to seeing Formula 1 broadcast on SBS or ABC television at the soonest possible opportunity.
