Aston Martin zet deur naar motorleverantie op een kier

 Aston Martin overweegt een toetreding tot de Formule 1 als motorleverancier. CEO Andy Palmer zet de deur voor motorleveranties vanaf 2021 alvast op een kier. "Als we de sport weer meer spektakel kunnen brengen en als we de kosten qua motoren binnen de perken kunnen houden, dan is Aston Martin zeker geïnteresseerd in het bouwen van een eigen motor."

De fabrikant van luxe sportwagens werkt al sinds 2016 samen met Red Bull Racing en wordt hardnekkig met een nauwere samenwerking in verband gebracht. "Ik ben nu al aan het onderhandelen over hoe onze rol er volgend jaar in de sport uit gaat zien, maar dat is natuurlijk ook een beetje afhankelijk van hoe de motorregelementen er na 2021 uit zullen zien", licht Palmer zijn plannen toe in gesprek met Martin Brundle van Sky Sports.

"Met een eigen motor en een duidelijk doel voor ogen, zou het ook logisch zijn om onze betrokkenheid volgend jaar al uit te breiden. Hopelijk hebben we tegen het einde van dit jaar ook al wat meer duidelijkheid over de nieuwe motorregelementen", klinkt Palmer ambitieus. Eerder liet Christian Horner al doorschemeren dat Aston Martin een serieuze optie is, al ziet de teambaas Porsche en Lamborghini ook als mogelijke partners. Vanaf 2021 moeten de huidige V6-motoren plaatsmaken voor luidruchtigere en vooral goedkopere motoren.

Adrian Newey, het technische brein achter Red Bull Racing, heeft met het ontwikkeling van de 'Valkyrie hypercar' bovendien al enige ervaring met Aston Martin. Voor de tussenliggende periode gaf Horner eerder al aan dat zijn renstal voor 2019 en 2020 waarschijnlijk van één van de huidige motorleveranciers afhankelijk is. Honda lijkt daarbij één van de weinige opties, al gaf een kritische Daniel Ricciardo aan dat "het geen geheim is dat Honda daarvoor nog grote stappen moet maken."

Lewis Hamilton’s dramatic win at the Singapore Grand Prix was more than a race, with a proof-of-concept by Tata Communications and Formula 1 showing how F1 fans can be immersed in race action using virtual reality (VR).

The aim of the trial was to show how while watching the live race on TV, fans could build their own F1 race experiences through 360° video feeds. Tata noted that to-date, any VR and 360° video experiments in sports have been hampered by a 30-second delay between the 360° video and live TV feeds, and the fact that not everyone owns a VR headset. The Singapore proof-of-concept was said to be the first time when live 360° video feeds and TV broadcast have been shown in complete sync.

There were two 360° cameras at the Marina Bay Street Circuit in Singapore in the trackside and paddock to show how viewers at home could immerse themselves through a VR-like environment via the Official F1 app. During the Grand Prix build-up, fans could access a live 360° video feed from the paddock or during a race, as a driver pulled into the pits, they could complement the action on TV with a 360° view of everything that is happening in the pit lane in real-time.

“We’ve done this test to show how a fan could watch Lewis, Sebastian or any other drivers coming into the pits on TV, grab their tablet and get a second, completely in sync 360° view of everything going on around him while he is there - not 30 seconds after he has driven off,” explained aid Formula 1 chief technical officer John Morrison. “In a sport like F1, where every millisecond matters, there are huge opportunities to empower fans to take control of key Grand Prix moments and create their unique, personalised race experiences through the powerful combination of live TV and 360° video.”

Added Mehul Kapadia, MD of Tata Communications’ F1 business: “This proof of concept shows the potential of live 360° video to augment the F1 TV viewing experience and bring VR mainstream in live sports and entertainment. Eliminating the delay in 360° video means that, for the first time, it’s possible to offer fans truly live 360° video experiences on a global scale. This will enable sports and entertainment organisations to engage with their audiences in new ways and generate new revenue streams – helping the 360° video and VR market achieve its USD $60 billion potential.”

The live 360° video proof-of-concept follows close collaboration between Tata Communications and Formula 1 during the last five seasons to lay the foundations for the sport’s digital transformation, testing in action technologies such as UHD video and live broadcasting and over-the-top (OTT).

Sportflix, an over-the-top (OTT) platform offering live sports in Asia, is using GeoGuard’s anti-fraud toolkit to protect its platform from the growing threat of geo-piracy.

David Briggs Chairman GeoGuard headshotAs more content becomes available online, the industry is also seeing a rise in geo-piracy: where viewers use circumvention methods such as virtual private networks (VPNs) or domain name system proxies (DNS proxies) to fake their IP address and location to gain illicit access to content and evade detection.

The newly launched Sportfix live sports OTT platform incubated by TSA, Asia’s leader in sports content, operates in South East Asia and aims to appeal to 600 million sports-mad viewers in the region. GeoGuard’s geo-piracy protection solution will verify and block attempts made by viewers to access content illicitly.

“Premium content drives consumers to seek out cheaper - or even free - ways of accessing that content online,” said David Briggs (pictured), chairman and co-founder of GeoGuard. “Live sports is one of the highest value genres of premium content and a big draw for subscribers, therefore protecting digital rights in each region is a priority for TV providers and content owners. We are confident that our third-party tested and studio-approved solutions will offer Sportsfix the high level of protection it needs to pinpoint and prevent viewers from attempting to access content which is geographically restricted.”

Marcus Luer, CEO of Sportfix, added: “Asia is a huge market for sports and so there is an appetite from our subscribers to gain access to live showings of the most popular sporting events. To secure rights to these live events we need to ensure this content is thoroughly protected on our platform. In bringing GeoGuard on board we can ensure that our content is available for subscribers to watch and enjoy legitimately.”

Snap has blocked access in Saudi Arabia to Al Jazeera video content on its Snapchat social media network – a move that has been denounced by the Qatar-based news network.

Al Jazeera on SnapchatThe Saudi Arabian Government told Snap that Al Jazeera’s news reports violated local laws. Confirming the move to Reuters, the social media company said: “We make an effort to comply with local laws in the countries where we operate”.

Al Jazeera’s Arabic language news channel was added to Snapchat Discover in May.

“We find Snapchat’s action to be alarming and worrying. This sends a message that regimes and countries can silence any voice or platform they don't agree with by exerting pressure on the owners of social media platforms and content distribution companies,” said Mostefa Souag, acting director general, Al Jazeera Media Network.

“This step is a clear attack on the rights of journalists and media professionals to report and cover stories freely from around the world,” he added.

Morad Rayyan, head of incubation and innovation research at Al Jazeera, said as a US based, publically traded company, Snapchat “stands for freedom of expression”.

“We are urging them [Snapchat] to review the decision that was made. They were the ones who invited us to be one of their news partners for the region.”

Saudi Arabia cut diplomatic and economic ties with Qatar on 5 June, along with neighbouring Gulf states of UAE and Bahrain, plus Egypt. Among the sanctions applied was a block on the reception of Al Jazeera broadcasts either online or via satellite.

India’s Zee Entertainment Enterprises Limited (ZEEL) has completed the sale of its sports network Ten Sports to Sony Pictures Networks India (SPNI).
Ten Sports NetworkThe media group said it has received US$36.32 million in the second phase of the two-step sale of the sports broadcasting business.
In August 2016, ZEEL announced it would sell Ten Sports to SPN for US$385 million in a cash deal.

The companies have “mutually concluded closure of transaction upon receipt of remittance of consideration of US$36.32 million from SPNI”, ZEEL said in a filing to the Bombay Stock Exchange.

Phase one of the sale was concluded in February with a US$330 million transaction.

“The adjustment of the consideration amount interalia is mainly consequent to retention of a leasehold immovable property at Dubai by Taj TV Ltd, Mauritius and certain working capital adjustments of the sports business as per the agreement,” ZEEL said.

Abdul Rahman Bukhatir's Taj Group, based in Dubai, sold Ten Sports to ZEEL in 2006.

Ten Sports holds broadcast rights for the cricket boards of South Africa, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, West Indies and Zimbabwe. In addition, football is represented on the network through the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, French League and English Football League Cup. WWE wrestling, as well as WTA and ATP tennis, and golf from the European Tour, Asian Tour, Ryder Cup, US PGA Championship, LPGA Tour, Professional Golf Tour of India and Golf Channel Block are also carried, while Le Tour de France and Moto GP round out the slate – along with athletics from the Asian Games and Commonwealth Games.
