Revenues amounted to $1.145bn compared to a previous $2.022bn in a year of Covid that featured 17 races

Formula One's revenues took an $877m hit last year, falling 43% as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, owners Liberty Media reported Friday.

Revenues amounted to $1.145bn compared to a previous $2.022bn in a year that featured 17 races, mostly without spectators, and had highlight events such as Monaco and Singapore cancelled.

The previous year had 21 races and 22 had been planned for 2020 with 23 scheduled for 2021.

The sport reported an annual operating loss of $386m, compared to a previous profit of $17m, and the 10 teams shared $711m - $301m less than the previous year and a drop of 30%.

Formula One's primary revenues are derived mostly from race promotion fees, broadcasting deals and advertising and sponsorship.

The revenues also provide a significant part of the budget for smaller teams.

New chief executive Stefano Domenicali said his predecessor Chase Carey had, however, left strong foundations for future growth and the sport was well positioned with commercial partners.

Domenicali said all race promoters were clear that their events should go ahead as scheduled this year, and the sport had demonstrated in 2020 that it could race safely during the pandemic.

The new season starts in Bahrain on March 28.
