Motor racing - Qatar's beIN says it is not renewing F1 deal


LONDON (Reuters) - Qatar-based beIN Sports said on Friday it had decided not to renew a contract for the rights to broadcast Formula One in the Middle East and North Africa as a consequence of piracy in the region.

The previous five-year deal expired at the end of last season. The 21-race 2019 world championship starts in Australia on March 17.
