Want to watch F1 live? You’ve come to the right place. We created this resource to help steer you (pun totally intended) in the direction of the F1 live stream available in your country. Depending on where you’re tuning in from, you may even be able to watch the Italian Grand Prix for free — whether you’re at home or traveling abroad.
Is There a Free F1 Live Stream?
Those lucky enough to live in Austria or Luxembourg can watch the F1 live stream for free. The races are being broadcast on ORF and ServusTV in Austria, and RTL Zwee in Luxembourg. But what about locals who out of town but want to tune into the free F1 live stream from abroad? They can tune in via a VPN like ExpressVPN.
That’s right — Austria or Luxembourg residents out of the country can use a VPN to watch the action unfold in their local language for free. These are the only countries where a legal free F1 live stream is available. Viewers located elsewhere will need to tune in through their local, licensed broadcaster (more on them below).
How to Watch the F1 Live Stream in the UK
Sky Sports has secured the exclusive broadcasting rights to the 73rd Formula 1 World Championship in the United Kingdom. All of the races are being shown on Sky Sports F1 in 4K Ultra HD with HDR. You’ll need to be a Sky customer with a Sky Sports suscription, available from £18 per month, to watch the F1 live stream on TV.
Not a Sky customer? You can sign up for a Now Sports Pass to watch the F1 live stream on mobile, tablet or on select Smart TVs and set-top boxes. You can buy for a Day Pass for £9.99 or £33.99 for unlimited access for a month. But unlike Sky TV, Formula 1 doesn’t stream on Now TV in 4K Ultra HD: It’s broadcast in Full HD.
Of course, Brits abroad can use a VPN like ExpressVPN to tune in to the F1 live stream through Sky Now or Now TV (depending on the service you use) from anywhere in the world. This saves you from handing over money for something you already pay for and from having to brave the commentary in a foreign language.
