We recommend ExpressVPN as it comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee. Full details below.

Watch an F1 replay from abroad in the world using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant 2022 F1 rights holders, you won't be able to access the replay when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, helping you access local streams from where you are – and saving you money!
