Formula 1 has announced a new multiyear strategic partnership with the global telecommunications unit, Tata Communications. With this agreement, Tata Communications returns to Formula 1 as the official broadcast connectivity provider.

This collaboration will strive to provide a world-class and technologically advanced experience for fans all over the world.

Tata Communications will offer Formula 1 with global end-to-end managed network services for video contribution, revolutionising the motorsports experience. Every race weekend, the firm will ensure the availability of more than 100 video feeds and over 250 audio networks between the Grand Prix venue and F1’s Media & Technology Centre in the UK in less than 200 milliseconds, allowing F1 to broadcast to over 500 million fans in 180+ territories around the world.

Tata Communications’ renowned and built-for-media connectivity solutions will allow Formula 1 to elevate global broadcast content production while supporting the sport’s drive for agility and sustainability. Tata Communications has reduced the organization’s travelling freight by 34% since the launch of Formula 1’s remote broadcast operations in 2020.

Stefano Domenicali, President & CEO of Formula 1, said, “We are delighted to welcome Tata Communications back as a partner following previous successes in our partnerships. They have been an integral part of our growth journey over the last decade, and we completely trust their expertise and abilities to deliver what we need for our fans. 

This trust has been built over many years of working together, pushing forward advancements in technology in sport – on and off the track. Tata Communications’ connectivity continues to support F1’s drive for agility and sustainability with remote production introduced in 2020 – part of our aim to be Net-Zero Carbon by 2030. We are excited to grow together in the future and share the incredible journey Formula 1 is on.”

Amur S Lakshminarayanan, MD and CEO, Tata Communications, commented, “As businesses evolve to a digital-first model, I believe the sporting world also has a great opportunity to leverage technology for delivering innovative and exhilarating experiences to motorsports enthusiasts. And, Formula 1 is at the core of all things speed, action and thrill. We are delighted to renew our relationship and empower Formula 1’s tomorrow, today!”
