Antena 3 secures F1’s Spanish TV rights

Spanish fans can breathe a sigh of relief with the news that F1 will be seen on television in 2012.

Rights holder Mediapro terminated existing broadcaster La Sexta’s deal due to non-payment, it emerged late last month.

But Spanish daily newspapers report this week that Antena 3 has secured the rights for 2012 and 2013.
