FIA Formula 2 accreditation is only granted to written (print and/or online) and photo-based media outlets. Any podcast, radio, or filming requests (television/digital/social) will be passed on to the relevant team at Formula 1.
F2 media accreditation grants access to the F2/F3 paddocks only. For the avoidance of doubt, F2 media passes do NOT provide access to the Formula 1 paddock or Formula 1 media centre.
Accreditation Application Deadlines
The accreditation deadline for all race weekends is 14 days before the start of the event. The deadline for official tests is 5 days before the start of the event.
Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their request no later than 10 days before the start of the event for race weekends, and no later than 4 days before the start of the event for tests.
Requests for 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Requests are only complete when the form has been returned correctly with a valid with passport-style photo ID attached in JPEG, JPG or PNG format.
As part of the media accreditation process, applicants must provide ALL the details requested within the application form. Forms with missing information will be considered incomplete.
Formula 2 will only allocate media accreditation to outlets intending to publish reports related to the event(s) for which the accreditation has been requested.
F2 liaise closely with the National Press Offices and Sporting Authorities to confirm the validity of a given application.
Applicants will also be required to read and acknowledge the 2023 Media Access Protocols.
Press clippings and/or links must be sent to the Media & Communications team (email@example.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, as well as a specific section devoted to Formula 2, 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 Formula 2 will be considered.
Accreditation decisions are made by the F2 Media & Communications team according to well established and recognised principles and procedures:
The FIA Formula 2 Championship reserves the right to deny accreditation without explanation.
