Liberty Media

MotoGP will continue to be run as a separate business to Formula 1 and there is unlikely to be any bundling of the media or sponsorship rights to the two properties following Liberty Media’s acquisition of the motorcycling series.

Liberty Media has targeted the Americas as the main growth region for MotoGP after striking a deal for Dorna Sports that values the series promoter and rights-holder at €4.2bn ($4.5bn).

Dorna Sports’ expected sale to Liberty Media for over €4bn ($4.3bn) offers the potential to generate a host of commercial efficiencies across both Formula 1 and MotoGP in a watershed moment for motorcycling.

Formula 1 has seen its annual revenue grow to $3.22bn (€2.97bn), with the impact of its new Las Vegas Grand Prix particularly impacting its fourth quarter results as operating income rose by 164 per cent year-on-year.

Formula 1 saw its race promotion revenue grow during the second quarter of 2023 compared to the same period last year, despite the cancellation of May’s Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix, although overall revenue dropped from $744m (€675m) to $724m due to a decline in media rights income.
