How to watch F1 online: stream every Formula 1 2023 race live from around the world
By Tom Bedford,2023-09-18
There are six more races left in the F1 2023 season, and next up is the Qatar Grand Prix on Sunday, October 6.How to stream
All through the Formula 1 2023 season, Dutch racer Max Verstappen has been winning the vast majority of races on behalf of his team, Red Bull Racing. The only exceptions have been two races won by his team-mate Sergio Perez, and one surprising victory from Ferrari's Carlos Sainz Jr.
While it's now too late for other teams to pinch the rug from under Red Bull Racing and its dominant Verstappen, pride is still on the line in these final six races.
You can find information on the next race below, particularly how to watch it, whether you live in the US, UK, Australia or somewhere else entirely. There's also information on the rest of the racing league, though the streaming information remains the same.
For motorsport fans, you might want to also check out F1: Drive to Survive season 5 which just released on Netflix, as it explores the 2022 season (and a season 6, looking at the 2023 one, has already been confirmed). So read on to find out how to stream F1 from where you are.
Next Formula 1 race: October 8 — Qatar Grand Prix
The next Asian GP is here in the form of the Qatar Grand Prix, which falls on Sunday, October 8 after a week-end of early engagements.
The Qatar Grand Prix takes place at the Lusail International Circuit in the Qatari city of Lusail. The track is 5.419km long, with 16 turns in total, and it's distinctive for a straight of over 1km that's one of the longest straights in the F1 calendar.
This is only the second occurrence of the Qatar GP, after its 2021 debut that Lewis Hamilton won. There was no 2022 edition due to the Soccer World Cup taking place in the city at the same time.
The race itself is on Sunday, October 8, but there are other events that build up to it, and you can find the full schedule here:
Friday, October 6
- Practice 1: 9.30 am ET/6.30 am PT/2.30 pm UK
- Qualifying: 1 pm ET/10 am PT /6 pm UK
Saturday, October 7
- Spring Shootout: 9 am ET/6 am PT/2 pm UK
- Sprint: 1.30 pm ET/10.30 am PT /6.30 pm UK
Sunday, October 8
- Race: 1 pm ET/10 am PT /6 pm UK
Watch F1 in the US
If you want to watch F1 in the US, you'll need to have access to either ESPN or ESPN 2, as these are the two channels that have broadcast rights to Formula 1 in the US.
There's a good chance that your cable package has ESPN's two primary channels already, but if not, you can use live TV streaming services to get access. Your options are Sling TV (on its $40-per-month Orange plan), FuboTV ($74.99 per month) Hulu with Live TV ($74.99 per month) or YouTube TV ($64.99 per month).
While these options will get you both ESPN channels and more, that 'more' might be a problem for some; if you just want to watch F1, and don't want a whole cord-cutter package, live TV streaming services might be too much. Thankfully, you have other options.
F1 has its own subscription service called F1 TV, and the top-tier version of this lets you watch live races too. You can even switch from the main live feed and any of the cars' onboard cameras. F1 TV Pro costs $10 per month, or $80 per year, and you can find more information about F1 TV here .
Watch F1 in the UK
In the UK, your best bet for watching F1 is through the Sky Sports F1 channel — Sky has exclusive broadcasting rights to Formula 1 until 2029.
For this channel, you'll need a Sky TV subscription as well as the Sky Sports add-on, which in total costs £44 per month for an 18-month contract.
If you don't want that commitment, you can buy a Now Sports Pass, which grants you temporary access to the Sky Sports channels; a monthly pass will set you back £33.99, whilst a 24-hour day pass costs £11.98. This might be suitable if you just want to stream one or two races instead of the whole season.
And if you want to watch F1 in the UK for free, highlights from each race are available after the race has taken place on free-to-air broadcaster Channel 4 and its streaming service, All4 .
Watch F1 in Australia
If you live in Australia, you can use Fox Sports or Foxtel to watch the F1 races, with Kayo Sports also offering live streaming.
Ten Play will be showing race highlights for each of the Grand Prix races, and you won't need to pay for this privilege either.
