The 2019 Formula One season is underway and with 21 races taking place all over the world, it’s one of the biggest sporting events on the planet. With teams competing for the Constructors Championship and drivers vying for individual honours – there is always plenty of drama on the F1 track.
Running until December, the Formula One calendar is a constant presence for any sports fan. With a key stretch of the 2019 F1 season in progress, fans need to keep up-to-date with what time the sessions take place and how to watch the next race live – the Belgian Grand Prix (August 30 – September 1 AEST).
Here’s how to ensure you don’t miss any of this season’s action:
2019 Formula One Live TV Guide
The 2019 Formula One season marks the 70th anniversary of the formation of the organisation. 21 races take place across 5 different continents between March and December in the calendar year. In an innovative move by the FIA, the final race in Abu Dhabi (December) sees drivers competing for the chance to win double points – upping the stakes on the final day of the season. The 2019 F1 TV schedule will also see the German Grand Prix making a popular return to the calendar. The Chinese Grand Prix in April was the 1000th competitive F1 race with plans in place to potentially extend the calendar starting in the 2020 season. With 21 Grand Prix weekends, plus all of the pre and post-race coverage, there’s no shortage of action for F1 fans.
The one man the rest of the drivers will be trying to stop is Lewis Hamilton with the British driver taking home 4 of the last 5 World Championships – with only Nico Rosberg stopping him in 2016. Hamilton is chasing down Michael Schumacher’s record of 7 world titles (he currently has 5) and along with Mercedes team mate Valtteri Bottas, they will be the favourites for the driver’s title this season. Elsewhere, Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull’s Max Verstappen look the most likely candidates to put a stop to Mercedes’ dominance. The European swing of the F1 season is next on the horizon with 9 of the next 10 races in the calendar taking place in Europe including the British Grand Prix at Silverstone (in July) and the infamous Monaco Grand Prix (in late May). With races coming on a fortnightly basis, there are plenty of options for watching F1 live.
