Abstract: Drawing upon the technology acceptance model, the aim of this study was to describe the eff ects of technology innovations in Formula 1 (F1) on fans' satisfaction and commitment to consumption of F1 as a TV product, controlling for identifi cation with F1 and specifi c teams and drivers. We surveyed F1 fans (N = 449) contacted via web-based forums. Results of a structural equation modeling showed that positive perceptions of technology innovation lead to satisfaction with F1 as a TV product, which in turn leads to commitment to consumption. Highly identifi ed fans are committed to consuming the sport on TV, but they do not necessarily accept F1 new technologies. Technology changes that increase predictability and competitive unbalance are not well received and may lead to less consumption of F1 on TV. F1 managers need to make careful analysis before introducing new technology, which might decrease the TV audience for F1 races.
