F1 live stream: how to watch today’s US Grand Prix 2019 online from anywhere

Today could well be the day that Lewis Hamilton secures his sixth drivers’ title at the US Grand Prix. He only managed to be the fifth fastest driver in qualification, but just a few points will be enough. Can the Mercedes man do it? You can find out with an F1 live stream of the event from wherever you are.

US Grand Prix 2019 – where and when

The United States is the venue for the nineteenth Grand Prix of the 2019 F1 season, with a challenging track 3.4 miles/5.5 km long that speeds its way around the Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas.

The US Grand Prix starts Sunday, November 3 at 1.10pm local time. So that’s 7.10pm GMT, 12.10pm PT, 3.10pm ET

The United States Grand Prix was voted the best race of 2018 on the official F1 site. As if that wasn’t enough to set expectations high for 2019, this could be the race that lets Hamilton take his sixth title, making him an elite driving legend. This is going to be an intense race.

Now Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc of Ferrari can only hope to grasp second and fourth places respectively. Last year saw Kimi Raikkonen win this race for Ferrari but the four years before that were all Hamilton wins, with Vettel before that in 2013. The year before that, in 2012, Vettel set the track lap record at 1:39.347, but Hamilton ultimately won that race, too!

Lewis Hamilton – at 363 points – now has a 74-point lead lead over teammate Valtteri Bottas, with only three races and a total of 78 points still available to any one driver. 

All that means that all Hamilton has to do at Austin is get eighth place or better and he’s won the title, regardless of Bottas’ finishing position. If Bottas doesn’t win this race then Hamilton will be crowned champion, regardless of his finishing position.

You can see all the exciting racing using an F1 live stream from anywhere in the world – here’s how.

How to watch the US Grand Prix from outside your country

To see how you can stream F1 live from the US Grand Prix in the UK, Australia, the US, Canada and New Zealand, then scroll a little further down this page to see the broadcast options. But if you try and tune in to your native stream from outside your country, you’ll quickly discover that it’s geo-blocked.

That’s where a VPN can come in really handy. It’s a piece of software readily available to download and install that allows you to simulate the IP address on your laptop (or mobile phone, tablet, streaming device, console, etc) so that it appears to be in a completely different country. Ideal, assuming that it doesn’t breach any Ts&Cs from the broadcaster you’re trying to tune in to.

That might sound complicated, by VPNs – or Virtual Private Networks – are actually surprisingly easy to operate. Simply select one of our top three best VPN picks below (or opt straight for our number one favorite ExpressVPN), open it up and pick out your country of choice from the ‘choose location’ menu, and then start watching as if you were sat back at home. Easy!

Sign up for ExpressVPN now and enjoy a 49% discount and 3 months FREE with an annual subscription. Or give it a try with its 30-day money back guarantee. It’s fast, secure, easy to use and works across pretty much any mobiles device and streaming box you can think of.
