Powering the delivery of Formula 1® around the world

As the Official Broadcast Connectivity Provider of Formula 1®, Tata Communications are proud to celebrate a strategic technology collaboration which has created a world-class experience for fans globally, every race weekend since 2012.

The Challenge

Formula 1® is a unique and challenging environment, which calls for the best and brightest minds, and latest in cutting-edge technology, to allow the sport to continue to be the resounding success that we see today.
  • A Global Sport

    With the growth of the F1® season, there are now 23 different race locations on the calendar across 20 countries and 5 continents.
  • Remote Operations

    With broadcast operations hosted remotely in the UK, data from the circuit needs to travel from each race location to the UK before it can be broadcast worldwide.
  • Dependable Agility

    In a sport where reaction time is everything, speed of response is measured in milliseconds, not seconds.
  • Multi-Channel Output

    Each race will see over 90 video feeds and 150 audio channels, all operating simultaneously throughout the weekend.
  • A Universal Audience

    Across the season, the F1® broadcast reaches a cumulative audience of 1.5* billion with an average of 68* million viewers per race, spread around the world.
