Plus there's probably other ways of watching that aren't measurable, online highlights clips etc.
For me I think F1 wants to chase new fans ( hence sprint races etc ) as well as keeping longer term fans who might be getting a little bored with Mercedes domination , but there is a huge risk that it attracts interest without attracting money. Fans who like to follow F1 on social media and just watch the free F1 videos and highlights, who dont buy a £40 team T shirt .. how much advertising income do they generate for F1?
Whereas those who pay for Sky , and will buy a race ticket for £400 are the ones keeping F1 in money.
