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 that those behind the scenes have still managed to put on 17 races. Find out exactly how to watch and stream them all 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.
