Formula 1 fans will no longer have access to the popular FanVision sets during 2013 after the company in charge of the devices could not agree terms with Formula One Management.
FanVision, which originally entered F1 under the Kangaroo TV banner, had provided spectators in the grandstands with the opportunity to hire handheld screen units that broadcast television coverage of the races, as well as on-board camera footage, full commentary and statistical data.
In a statement issued on Thursday, FanVision said that efforts to sort a new deal out with FOM had failed - which left it with no choice but to leave F1
