Formula 1 has become one of the biggest spectator sports in the world and the data shows that it will only grow! Formula 1 is also a very intricate sport to broadcast as it's not simply on a field but rather on a very intricate and long racing circuit and each Grand Prix takes place at a different track, 20 times per year!

So all that calls for some pretty sophisticated camera gear. You might have noticed while watching a Grand Prix on your TV that you get a glimpse of the onboard camera footage which is quite phenomenal to watch and gives the viewer a completely different sense of what speeds these drivers actually reach.

However, the FIA has just approved the use of helmet cams which are a tiny wireless camera system that is embedded into the helmet itself and looks directly out of the visor to give a viewpoint identical to that of the driver.

Take a look at the video below by the YouTube channel: Matt Amys on How Formula 1s Helmet Cam Works...
