The Korean Grand Prix was a feast for F1 technophiles – not only was Lewis Hamilton roaming the paddock wearing Google Glass but one fan got what appears to be the first footage of a Formula One race shot in 4K quality.

The ultra high definition videos were shot using a Galaxy Note 3 phone produced by South Korean company Samsung.

Mainstream UHD broadcasts are a long way off but next year a Japanese broadcaster is planning to show some World Cup football matches in 4K quality.

F1’s first high definition broadcasts began in 2011.
