How to Watch or Stream F1 season 2020 Instantly

F1 Australia

F1 was literally halted on the grid back in March, when the much anticipated start to the season was cancelled in Melbourne’s Albert Park. The good news is racing is back underway, albeit in a very different format within the borders of Europe. Find out exactly how to watch and stream every F1 race live right here!

Formula 1 TV Preview

F1 is back, with the 2020 season set to finally getting underway in Austria. Motoracing fans will be delighted to see some wheel to wheel action after constant coronavirus postponements and see Lewis Hamilton target Michael Schumacher’s record of seven World Championship wins. 

But there will be some serious young blood breathing down his neck in the shape of Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and Ferrari’s Charle Leclerc, both of whom stand as potential pretenders to the Englishman’s throne. A certain Daniel Ricciardo will also be looking to move closer to the front of the field in his Renault, after a stop-start 2019 campaign.

All F1 live races air on Foxtel here in Australia, which can be accessed via Foxtel or Foxtel from Telstra.

NRL (Foxtel and Kayo)

The NRL returns as the Roosters look to make history and win a record fifth National Rugby League title.
