  • EVENT ACCREDITATION

FIA Formula 2 accreditation is only granted to written (print and/or online) and photo-based media outlets. Any filming requests (digital/social/television) or radio requests will be passed on to the relevant team within Formula 1.

F2 media accreditation grants access to the F2/F3 paddock only. For the avoidance of doubt, F2 media passes do NOT provide access to the Formula 1 media centre or Formula 1 paddock.

Accreditation Application Deadlines

The accreditation deadline for all race weekends is 14 days before the start of the event. The deadline for testing sessions is five days before the start of the event.

Accreditation Requests

Requests for written and photographic media accreditation must be submitted via an application form provided by the FIA Formula 2 Media & Communications team. The form can be requested by emailing media@fiaformula2.com.

Requests are only complete when the form has been returned correctly with a valid with passport-style photo ID attached in JPEG format.

Accreditation Criteria

As part of the media accreditation process, applicants must provide all the details listed within the application form. Forms with missing information will be considered incomplete.

Applicants will also be required to read and acknowledge the 2022 Media Access Protocols.

For Race-by-Race accreditations Formula 2 liaise closely with the National Press Offices and Sporting Authorities to confirm the validity of a given application.

Clippings

F2 will only allocate media accreditation to outlets intending to publish reports related to the event(s) for which the accreditation has been requested. Press clippings and/or links must be sent to the Media & Communications team (media@fiaformula2.com) following the event for which the accreditation has been requested. Failure to do so may impact upon any subsequent media accreditation requests.

Quality of Coverage

The highest standards of fairness and accuracy are expected as a minimum quality requirement from the media. Freelance journalists must apply for credentials via their own agencies. The onus is on the freelance applicant to prove the supply of regular stories to publications, via press clippings and/or links.

For photo accreditation, photography agencies must be able to prove that the pictures have been regularly sold to publications and have been paid for at the normal commercial rate. A publication must be able to prove that the photographs published are the original work of the publication's accredited photographer.

Written publications must be on sale to the general public (trade, club or internal company magazines will not be accredited). Publications must also be of a sufficient circulation to warrant allocation of a credential.

Online media applying for accreditation must be able to prove traffic figures, a specific section devoted to F2, and a high percentage of unique content and material not available elsewhere.

Accreditation requests from journalists/photographers working for a specific team/driver will be denied - only accreditation requests for those covering F2 will be considered.

Decisions

Accreditation decisions are made by the F2 Media & Communication departments according to well established and recognised principles and procedures:

  1. Respect of the accreditation deadline;
  2. Compliance with the requested elements of the procedure (may include formal request for headed note paper signed by the Publisher or the Editor, sample of the publication, proofs of coverage, signed undertaking, representative's ID photo and press card);
  3. Commitment of coverage devoted to Formula 2 and/or Formula 3;
  4. Meeting the circulation and/or quality criteria.

The FIA Formula 2 Championship reserves the right to deny accreditation without explanation.
