The European Grand Prix is back! After a four-year absence from the Formula One racing calendar, the 2016 European Grand Prix will be held in the capital of Azerbaijan, Baku.

Okay, so Azerbaijan is technically in Asia, but no matter where you are, you can catch every heart-pounding turn online with the help of a VPN.

How a VPN helps you stream the European Grand Prix

A VPN makes it easier to watch live online streams of the race from broadcasters in other countries.

Just route your internet connection through a server in a country of your choice, and the content and websites think you’re in that country.

On top of that, ExpressVPN adds an additional layer of security with minimal speed loss.

Don’t miss a single second!

This year’s European Grand Prix circuit will power through the city streets of Baku. It’s Azerbaijan’s only Formula One event. The race is scheduled for July 17, in the middle of the season.

The races are being broadcast on a few different channels. In the U.S., NBC owns all broadcast rights for the entire race season. If you prefer watching an American broadcast just be aware that watching online will require a cable TV subscription.

Follow these steps to tune in:

  1. Sign up for an ExpressVPN account.
  2. Install ExpressVPN on any device that you want to watch the 2016 European Grand Prix on.
  3. Connect to any  VPN server location in the United States.
  4. Go to the NBC Live Sports Extra website or download one of the identically named apps.
  5. Input your (or your trusting friend’s) cable/satellite provider, username, and password–the same credentials you would use to pay a bill online.
  6. Navigate to the race stream and watch the European Grand Prix as it happens

If you prefer a touch of class to your races, Sky Sports in the UK is also streaming every race of the season on the Sky Go app. Just connect to any UK-based server, open the app, and enjoy!

Note: Sky’s player doesn’t always play nice with Chrome, so you may have to use Internet Explorer, Edge, or Firefox.

Who will come out on top?

Lewis Hamilton looks to be a strong contender for gold in the Mercedes. Will he take home the trophy in Baku?
