How to stream F1 races for free

The 23-race F1 season runs from March through November (Abu Dhabi), with Qatar set to return and Las Vegas arriving as the penultimate round for a Saturday night race.
The 2023 F1 racing season continues with the Qatar Grand Prix on Sunday, October 8. The Qatar GP will air live from the Lusail International Circuit at 8 p.m. local time / 1 p.m. ET.
Belgium’s RTBF offers free streams of F1 practice runs, qualifying, and races with French commentary. Austria’s Servus TV also broadcasts select races for free in German. If you want English commentary, you can listen to BBC’s Radio 5 live as you watch the stream.

Connect to a server location in Belgium.
Enjoy the race!
More ways to watch F1 races
If you already subscribe to cable or a cord-cutting service, you will still be able to watch live broadcasts of every F1 race. While the free options on RTBF and ServusTV are definitely the easiest for streaming online, here are other broadcasters from around the world:
Price: 10 USD/month and up
Channels: ABC, ESPN, and ESPN 2
Free trial? Yes
Whether you have a U.S. cable subscription or have cut the cord, ABC, ESPN, and ESPN 2 are good ways to tune into the races. ESPN Deportes, available as an add-on for Sling or Hulu, will provide a Spanish simulcast of select races. Check the official ESPN schedule for dates and times. Free trials are available on YouTube TV, Sling TV, and Hulu.
Most F1 races will air on ESPN 2. Monaco and the British GP will be broadcast live on the main ESPN channel, and Canada, U.S., and Mexico GP races (as well as the afternoon encore of Monaco GP) will be broadcast on ABC.
F1 TV Pro
Price: 10 USD/month or 80 USD/year
Free trial? Yes (depending on country)
The official F1 TV Pro stream provides access to every single race, but the price varies depending on your location. It offers a seven-day free trial in some countries (such as India), but not in the U.S. The F1TV mobile and tablet apps for iOS and Android let you watch the races on the go and offer features like “Battle” mode (two drivers, two cockpit cameras, side by side), which is great for following tense races from two points of view. You also get exclusive documentaries, shows, and access to a deep archive of content.
Price: From 10 EUR/month
Free trial? Yes
Holland’s Viaplay airs a combination of live sports—including F1, Bundesliga, Darts, and the EPL—along with original series, kids’ content, and Hollywood movies on demand.
Price: 12 GBP/day pass or 33 GBP/month
Channel: Sky Sports F1
Free trial? Yes
NOW is the perfect way to stream 11 Sky Sports channels online contract-free, including all the coverage of the 2023 Formula 1 season on the Sky Sports F1 channel. If you only want to tune in to one particular race, such as the Abu Dhabi GP, you can opt for a day pass to catch all the action or take advantage of the seven-day free trial.
Price: 22 GBP/month and up
Channels: Sky Sports F1
Free trial? No
Sky Sports in the UK will show Formula 1 in 2023 on the Sky Sports F1 channel. However, specialized equipment is required to watch the TV broadcasts. You will also need to provide a valid postal code and a UK/Ireland credit or debit card. If you already have a Sky subscription, you can stream its content online via Sky Go. With a VPN, you can watch Sky Go even when you’re traveling abroad.

How can I stream on my TV with a VPN?
In brief, there are five different ways to stream sports on your TV with ExpressVPN:
With the native app for a smart TV or streaming device
By streaming on your computer and connecting to the TV with an HDMI cable
By mirroring or casting wirelessly to your TV or streaming device from your computer or mobile device
By connecting to an ExpressVPN-enabled router, which allows for unlimited devices and makes it super simple to connect to different server locations simultaneously
With MediaStreamer, ExpressVPN’s solution for devices that cannot install a VPN, such as Apple TV or gaming consoles. MediaStreamer only needs to be set up once, although it does not provide the full security benefits of a VPN. (Note that by connecting your Apple TV or gaming console to a router, you can get the best of both worlds!)
Find out all the ways to get ExpressVPN on your big-screen TV, or just contact a 24/7 Support agent for step-by-step instructions.

Using a VPN for streaming ensures you watch securely in blazing-fast HD with unlimited bandwidth, free from ISP throttling (which can sometimes slow down speeds).
If you want to watch your favorite team from anywhere—even while traveling or on unsecured networks like public Wi-Fi—ExpressVPN is a great way to enhance your sports streaming experience.
