France has followed the lead of the UK, Italy and the Netherlands by introducing a pay television model for its Formula 1 coverage, with Canal+ claiming the rights.
Fans wishing to follow the sport in the country, which houses one of Europe's biggest F1 audiences, will now be required to pay 35 euros (30 pounds) a month for the privilege. The exclusive deal also pushes well-known broadcaster TF1 out of the sport, a channel which had been fronted by Romain Grosjean's wife, Marion Jolles.
In 2013, France will continue with at least three Formula 1 drivers. Grosjean, Jean-Éric Vergne and Charles Pic have all retained seats, while Jules Bianchi is one of the leading candidates for the vacancy alongside Paul di Resta at Force India.
