F1 converts to HD television coverage

It has been confirmed by Bernie Ecclestone’s Formula One Management (FOM) that the sport will be broadcast in full High Definition (HD) television coverage from the 2011 season onwards, therefore ending months of speculation over whether the innovation would be introduced this year.

From Bahrain in mid-March to Brazil on the final weekend of November, the entire campaign will be brought to our screens in HD, with the international world feed now being provided at a data rate of 42 megabits per second and in MPEG-2 format.
