Formula One to be shown exclusively by Sky Sports from 2019

Formula One's future on terrestrial television appears all but over after Sky Sports announced it has agreed an exclusive contract to broadcast the sport from 2019.

Channel 4, new to the grid this season after the BBC surrendered its deal three years early, currently shares the broadcasting rights with Sky.

But its time in the sport looks set to be short-lived with Sky agreeing a five-year contract to be the exclusive rights-holder in the UK.
