London - Formula One has pushed back the start of a new streaming service which it had hoped to launch in Australia this weekend.
A spokesman said the OTT product would be tested over the season-opening weekend in Melbourne with an aim to start delivery as soon as possible after that.
"We will do an intense stress test this weekend, with people connecting from all over the world to test functionalities," he said.
The product was announced during testing in Barcelona last month with Formula One saying fans would be able to watch races in a different way, including from their favourite driver's perspective.
F1 TV will give access to cameras mounted on the cars of the 20 drivers as well as the traditional broadcast feed, with viewers able to split the screens of their mobile device or smart TV.
