The BBC has announced that it will broadcast the 2011 Formula 1 season in high definition in the UK.
The news comes following the confirmation by Formula One Management (FOM) that all broadcasters will receive an high definition feed from this year.
As revealed by AUTOSPORT earlier today, FOM officially confirmed true HD coverage starting in 2011.
"Along with many, many HD viewers, I'm delighted that we'll have a chance next season to see Formula 1 in all its glory on television," said Danielle Nagler, Head of BBC HD and 3D.
"It's fantastic news that FOM has decided to green light HD broadcasts, and we're looking forward to sharing with the fans all the races in all their detail on BBC One HD and BBC HD."
The BBC also confirmed that former team boss Eddie Jordan will continue to be part of its commentary team, in an expanded role as primary analyst.
"It's fantastic that Eddie is rejoining the team, and this year in a more expanded role," said Ben Gallop, BBC Head of F1. "He's such a core character with his outspoken views, unrivalled contacts in the sport and his ability to unearth the stories from the paddock.
"We're also delighted to be broadcasting in HD, something we know fans have been waiting for and it will really add something extra to our coverage for 2011."
