Here’s everything you need to know to watch and live stream the 2020 F1 Spanish Grand Prix. Scroll down to the bottom of this page for the full qualifying results ahead of Sunday’s race.
How to watch Spanish Grand Prix F1 live streams with a VPN
If you’re abroad and unable to use the streaming service you already pay for to watch the race, you don’t need to turn to a low-quality, glitchy workaround. Instead, use a virtual private network, or VPN, which can help you connect to your desired service through a U.S. server and watch the race without any needless frustrations.
We’ve evaluated many VPN services, and the best VPN top pick is ExpressVPN. It meets the VPN needs of the vast majority of users, offering outstanding compatibility with most devices and impressive connection speeds.
ExpressVPN really shines thanks to its safety, speed and simplicity-to-use. It’s also compatible with loads of devices – from iOS and Android to Roku, Apple TV and PlayStations. You’ll even get an extra 3 months free if you sign up for a year, or there’s a 30-day money-back guarantee if you just want to give it a try.
F1 live streams: Spanish Grand Prix in the US
For those watching the Spanish Grand Prix on TV in the U.S., the main event, qualifying and Practice 3 will be broadcast live on ESPN. The first two practice sessions on Friday will be broadcast on ESPN2.
You can stream the race via the ESPN app, or the Watch section of ESPN’s website. However, you’ll need to authenticate with your satellite, cable or live TV provider credentials to watch any sessions of the weekend. Formula 1 is not available on ESPN Plus, ESPN’s standalone streaming service; you need access to live ESPN channels.
Just as with the previous two seasons, ESPN’s F1 broadcast picks up the Sky Sports F1 feed. ESPN is available through most cable packages as well as cable TV replacement services, including Sling TV, YouTube TV and Hulu with Live TV.
If you don’t want to pay for live ESPN in some fashion or another, your only alternative is F1 TV Pro — F1’s own official streaming service, which also duplicates the Sky Sports feed. F1 TV Pro costs $10 monthly or $80 for the entire season. (Given the shortened campaign and uncertainty of the schedule, monthly seems to be the safer way to go here.) In addition to live streaming F1 events, it also offers access to Formula 2, Formula 3 and Porsche Supercup races, as well as F1’s historic archive of classic Grands Prix.
If you’re not already a Sling TV subscriber, you’ll want Sling Orange if you want to watch ESPN. It also includes the Disney Channel, ESPN2 and ESPN3. The service normally costs $30 a month, but new customers can get their first month for $20.
F1 live streams: Spanish Grand Prix in the UK
As with the entire 2020 F1 schedule, Sky Sports F1 is your destination for complete Spanish Grand Prix weekend coverage if you live in the U.K. Sky Sports F1 is a paid channel, and because it retains exclusivity over all F1 broadcasts in the country, you won’t be able to tune into the race using F1 TV Pro, as that service is not available in the U.K.
If you want to watch the race without a Sky Sports F1 subscription, we recommend buying a Now TV Sky Sports Day Pass, which will set you back £10. Now TV also offers a month pass available at a reduced price of £25, which will allow you to watch the entire weekend of festivities, and even the next Grand Prix, too.
Just a heads up, though: Now TV isn’t available via a web browser, but rather through apps on Now TV devices, PlayStation, Xbox, Apple TV and some smart TVs.
