SIRIUS Satellite Radio and Formula One Management have entered into an agreement that will make SIRIUS the exclusive North American radio broadcaster of all FORMULA 1 (F1) races, marking the U.S. radio premiere of the high-profile sport.
SIRIUS' F1 schedule kicks off this weekend with live coverage of the Monaco Grand Prix in Monte Carlo (Sunday, May 25 at 8:00 am ET), one of the world's most prestigious and challenging motor racing events, exclusively on SIRIUS channel 125.
Often referred to as the crown jewel of F1, the Monaco Grand Prix is one of the only street circuits in use. SIRIUS will broadcast the entire remainder of the 2008 calendar's races live nationwide on SIRIUS 125, including the first-ever F1 night race, being held in Singapore on September 28.
"We are very happy to be associated with SIRIUS Satellite Radio, and that they will broadcast our races into North America," said Bernie Ecclestone, Chief Executive of Formula One Management.
