A group of hackers working to target Islamic State online have apparently claimed they were behind an attack which took down the BBC's website and iPlayer for several hours earlier this week.
A group named the New World Hackers said they had carried out the attack on Thursday as a "test" of their abilities, according to messages sent to the corporation's technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones.
"It was only a test, we didn't exactly plan to take it down for multiple hours," said the messages, which were posted on Twitter by Mr Cellan-Jones.
"We realise sometimes what we do is not always the right choice, but without cyber hackers ... who is there to fight off online terrorists?"
The hackers took down the website by overwhelming its servers with a flood of requests for information, the BBC said.
A BBC spokeswoman said the broadcaster would not comment on the claim of responsibility made by the group.
The BBC's director of sport, Barbara Slater, says the decision to end their live Formula 1 contract prematurely was "tough" and "unwanted".
Channel 4 will take over the terrestrial rights from the BBC after it revealed it had signed a three-year deal.
The move comes as a result of a £35m cut to the BBC's sports rights budget, and Slater explained:
The current financial position of the BBC means some tough and unwanted choices have to be made. A significant chunk of BBC Sport's savings target will be delivered through the immediate termination of our TV rights agreement for Formula One.
Any decision to have to stop broadcasting a particular sport or sporting event is hugely disappointing and taken reluctantly. There are no easy solutions; all of the options available would be unpopular with audiences.
