F1 Grand Prix Free Air and 2019 Live Online TV Preview

The Formula One World Championship season is fully underway, with twenty-one confirmed events on the 2019 calendar, including the Grand Prix in Britain, next-up from July 12-15 (Sydney time).

The Formula One championship is a nine-month celebration of the greatest motor-racing season in the world, with each Grand Prix an opportunity for the drivers to showcase their cars and skills, and you won’t miss a minute when watching it live on your TV at home, or streaming to a mobile device if you’re out and about.

2019 British Grand Prix TV Guide

A symbol of excellence, the FIA Formula One World Championship travels five continents and draws a global television audience in the hundreds of millions, and this next stop on the circuit is certainly a big part of the success. The 2019 British Grand Prix will be hosted at the Silverstone Circuit, and is the tenth fixture on this year’s F1 calendar.

The Grand Prix in Britain has been a consistent part of the Formula One World Championship since the inaugural 1950 season. It is the oldest race on the calendar, having been raced as the first round of the first season of the Championship, and this will be 70th consecutive time it has been raced. The most recent edition of the race saw Germany’s Sebastian Vettel take out the event for the first time, stopping a run of four consecutive wins by Lewis Hamilton.

When: Friday July 12 – 14 (Sydney time)
Where: Silverstone Circuit, Northamptonshire, England

Entering 2019 Lewis Hamilton is the defending Driver’s Champion and will be looking for a repeat, but every driver and team will look to dethrone the reigning champ including local favourite Daniel Ricciardo who has teamed-up with Renault Sport. Among the other key changes to the 2019 F1 season include that driver weight will now be considered separate from the vehicle, rather than as a combined figure. Additionally fuel allowance was increased to 110kg to allow drivers to use full power at all time, and biometric gloves will transmit potentially life-saving data to the medical team at the track.
