Only a rumour, but from the BBC

BBC Sport has learned this weekend that Channel 4 - which took over the free-to-air rights to F1 in the UK from the BBC in 2016 - is on the verge of concluding a deal to take on this aspect of the contract.
This is positive news for both F1 and British fans, because it guarantees that substantial coverage of the sport will still be available to all the population, and the sport will keep a high profile in one of its biggest and most important and influential markets.
It is not clear when a deal will be confirmed, as there are still a couple of areas that have yet to be resolved between C4 and Sky. But it is expected to be within the next weeks.
If it's back to the old 45 minutes at midnight highlights we used to get
from Murray Walker back in the 70's - forget it.

At the bottom of the article is an update on the new regs for 2021. The
manufacturers are not prepared to dump the MGU-H. Gloves are on.

I for one have been hoping like hell that they'd stick to their guns over
the MGU-H. It's the magic component of this spec car - the reason they're
getting so much power from a 1600cc car and 110kg of fuel. Getting rid of it
would be a huge step backwards.
