Sportsbetting integrity group Sportradar announced this week that they've signed an extension deal with the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) and will continue monitoring for any potential integrity violations moving forward.
The agreement will last for multiple years and will see Sportradar's Fraud Detection System continuing to be integrated, taking a look at the different races. The group will look for any suspicious betting behaviors and alert the racing organization about anything they find suspicious. There will also be a number of different workshops held by Sportradar to educate those involved in FIA about integrity threats and how to behave ethically so as not to influence bettors.
Speaking about the agreement SportRadar's Andreas Krannich said, "Our team will focus on safeguarding FIA competitions against integrity related threats through education, and will be driven by our market-leading FDS solution on race days.
"We look forward to working more closely with FIA in the years to come and continuing to play a part in upholding the integrity of some of the world's best-loved motor sports championships."
FIA Head of Governance, Integrity, and Regulatory Affairs Pierre Ketterer added: "Safeguarding the integrity of motorsport worldwide is of paramount importance. By adopting this multi-faceted approach to integrity, we are confident that our competitions will continue to be run with ethical values at the forefront."
