Our in-house storage editor, Chris Ramseyer, might just love this news, as he is a big fan of F1. Well, it looks as though the on-board cameras are about to get an injection of quality, with the standard-definition cameras being switched with high-def cameras.


The F1 broadcasts in HD, but the on-board cameras in the cars are much lower quality, technology has improved enough to consider putting HD cameras in the cars. Formula One Supporters Association talked to F1 journalist Christian Sylt, who had a look at future plans that include the possibility of HD cameras in the vehicles.

Also teased was multi-channel formats offering different views of the track and an interactive 3D replay feature. All of this might not happen, but we should expect some of it in the near future.
