Watch F1 live stream 2024
Formula One is almost back, so now's a good time to find out how to watch F1 live streams for the 2024 season. Races are shown live on ESPN (USA), Sky Sports (UK) and F1 TV Pro (RoW), though lucky fans in some countries – such as Austria – can watch a free F1 live stream of every GP! Use a VPN to pick up your usual stream from anywhere, if you happen to be away from home. Full details on how to watch F1 on TV just below.
F1 2024 season preview
The F1 calendar has expanded to a whopping 24 races for the 2024 season, and we all know what that means: Max Verstappen could break his ludicrous record of 19 Grand Prix victories... or Mercedes, Ferrari, McLaren and Aston Martin could get their acts together and make a go of things this time.
Carlos Sainz was the only non-Red Bull driver to top a podium last year, and Frederic Vasseur has promised a complete overhaul in a bid to make the prancing horse consistently competitive again. Mercedes' hopes appear to rest on the W15 and Lewis Hamilton getting along until he departs for Ferrari in 2025, while for McLaren and Aston Martin it's a case of turning up for the entire season.
AlphaTauri has been rebranded as RB, which won't be confusing in the slightest, Alfa Romeo is now Stake F1 Team Kick Sauber (and will become Audi in two years), Ayao Komatsu has replaced Guenther Steiner as the Haas Team Principal, and Sergio Perez is once again fighting for his seat. Red Bull's Christian Horner remains under investigation as pre-season testing opens in Bahrain, 21-23 February.
There will be just one pre-season test in 2024, in Bahrain, from February 29th to March 2nd. There are no major rule changes, no rookies and no new tracks, and F1 has announced six sprint races: the Chinese, Miami, Austrian, US, Brazilian and Qatar Grands Prix. Read on as we explain how to watch F1 races online and on TV.
