What is Liberty Media assets’ net worth?

Forbes estimates F1’s market value

Liberty Media was founded in 1991 by John C. Malone. The headquarters are located in Englewood,  Colorado, United States. The Chief Executive Officer has been Greg Maffei since 2005.

Forbes put pen to paper and listed Liberty Media, the owners of Formula 1, as the ‘World’s Most Valuable Sports Empire’ for the year 2023. The company’s sporting assets are valued at almost $21 billion.

In 2017, Liberty Media took Formula 1and its value has quadrupled since that time. Announcing their rankings, Forbes corresponded: “Formula 1 had a banner 2022, averaging 1.21 million viewers across the ESPN family of networks, the highest on record for the series, and signed a new television deal in June reportedly worth at least $75 million a year, 15 times its previous deal. “No wonder Saudi Arabia’s Sovereign Wealth Fund considered acquiring Formula 1 for $20 billion last year, according to Bloomberg.” 

The FIA president, Mohammed Ben Sulayem, who is an Emirati former rally driver and one of the Arab world's leading motorsport figures, drew out judgment from F1 for allegedly violating his head of the governing body privileges by commenting on commercial matters. This was after information about an offer from Saudi Arabia came up.
