DF1 is new free-to-air TV partner of Formula E in Germany

The successor to ProSieben has been confirmed: television station DF1 is the new TV partner of Formula E in Germany, one of Hankook’s most important sales markets. The broadcaster kicked off its programme just a few weeks ago on 1st January 2024. In cooperation with the high-profile private station Servus TV from Austria, DF1 has secured broadcasting rights for Formula E and will report live on free-to-air TV from all the races in the electric series. The broadcast collaboration produced an item on the Hankook iON Race at the season-opener in Mexico, featuring ABT-CUPRA driver Nico Müller among others.

For decades, Hankook has been one of the first ports of call when it comes to international motorsport. Hankook supplies its race tyres to globally-renowned series, high-class junior formats and popular grassroot events. With new collaborations and partnerships, the company is constantly enhancing its status as a global player on the motorsport scene: in total, Hankook is actively involved in more than 50 series in 2023. Since Season 9, Hankook has been the new and exclusive technical partner and tyre supplier of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. In close cooperation with Formula E, the iON Race was developed for the world championship. Roughly 30 percent of the high-performance tyre is made of sustainable materials. With this commitment, Hankook is taking another pioneering step towards energy efficiency and sustainability in motorsport. The premium tyre maker’s portfolio covers a broad spectrum. This includes the 24H Series powered by Hankook, one of the most prestigious endurance series in the world, as well as the FIA ERC4 Junior Championship on the rally scene, popular touring car championships ADAC TCR Germany and TCR Italy, many high-class one-make cups for a wide range of renowned manufacturers, junior single-seater series, and assorted international racing events.
