How to watch the Qatar Formula 1 Grand Prix live and free in Australia

Posted: 21 November 2021 6:02 pm

There are still a few twists and turns to come in a marvellous Formula 1 season that has already had more than its fair share.

SUMMARY: The Qatar F1 Grand Prix is on Fox Sports. If you are already a Foxtel customer, you are all set. If not, your best option is to watch live on Kayo Sports. You can watch for free using this 14-day trial.

Lewis Hamilton's incredible drive in last week's Brazilian F1 Grand Prix has kept his hopes of securing an eighth world drivers' championship alive. In the most remarkable season, the battle between Hamilton and championship leader, Red Bull ace Max Verstappen, may yet come down to the final race of the season.

Hamilton (318.5 points) trails Verstappen (332.5) by 14 points in the championship. While there remain many scenarios that could see Hamilton snatch the championship from his Dutch rival, the most exciting is Hamilton claiming victory in a 1-2 over Verstappen in the final 3 races of the season. The Brit's Brazilian brilliance and the sudden turnaround in his car's performance makes that a very real option.

When is the Qatar Formula 1 Grand Prix?

This grand prix schedule is being held from 19–22 November at the Losail International Circuit in Qatar. The race gets underway at 1am AEDT on Monday 22 November.

Who will win the Qatar Grand Prix?

We're hoping it's Hamilton. Let's keep this party going!

The first ever Qatar GP throws up a number of questions – namely, which driver and which car will enjoy the desert conditions more – adding to a race already jam-packed with intrigue.

Hamilton bossed it in Brazil. His driving across the entire weekend was simply sensational. Verstappen, who has won 9 races this year, for once was on the defensive. For the first time in a long time, he looked like he didn't have the answers.

The final 3 races of this incredible season are in the desert. The championship will be decided there.
