Old Team Radios and Frequencies

TETRA radios were first introduced by the Sauber F1 Team in 2006. By 2016 the Riedel TETRA system became the de facto standard across most of the teams. Up until that point analogue radios were commonplace, with different digital radios introduced over time:

  • McLaren: From 2014 to 2019 McLaren ran an encrypted NXDN9600 Kenwood radio system. From 2005 to 2013 they ran a bespoke Kenwood encrypted McLaren Special II VHF and later cross-band radio system. For 2020 McLaren switched to the Riedel TETRA system.
  • Ferrari: From 1998 to 2006 Ferrari ran an Ascom Pentacom VHF encrypted radio system. From 2007 to 2014 they ran a private Selenia encrypted TETRA radio system.
  • Red Bull: Until 2010 Red Bull ran a UHF Kenwood analogue radio system
  • Toro Rosso: For 2014 Toro Rosso ran a VHF MRTC NXDN9600 Kenwood radio system
