BBC to broadcast Formula 1 in HD

This season’s Formula 1 feeds will be available in high-definition, that according to AutoSport today. Formula One Management says the feeds will be available at 42MB per second and 1080i resolution. F1 follows Wimbledon, the Grand National and the Six Nations which the BBC already broadcasts in HD.

“We’re also delighted to be broadcasting in HD, something we know fans have been waiting for and it will really add something extra to our coverage for 2011.” said BBC head of F1 Ben Gallop.

However, according to AutoSport on-board cameras will not upgraded to HD quality as of yet, only set cameras along the track will shoot in hi-def. And, although the BBC has confirmed the upgrade, not all broadcasters will offer the HD quality to viewers.

In related news Eddie Jordan will become the race’s main analyst, with Martin Brundle and David Coulthard as main commentator and co-commentator, respectively.
