How to watch Belgian Formula 1 Grand Prix live and free in Australia
The Formula 1 season moves to Belgium as the drivers try to stop Lewis Hamilton extending his championship lead. This is how to watch.
ix races into the new, heavily rescheduled season, Lewis Hamilton has already won four of them. The six-time world champion, who is aiming for a record-equalling seventh title this year, has opened up a healthy lead over Max Verstappen and Valtteri Bottas.
There is still a long way to go in the championship, which has recently expanded to 17 events in 2020. But the rest of the field needs to keep showing competitiveness and take the fight to Hamilton or it could quickly become another procession.

Who will win Belgian Formula 1 Grand Prix?
Who else? We've tried to mix it up a few times this year and pick a driver other than Lewis Hamilton. But the smart money is on the Brit just about every race right now, particularly after he raved about the performance of his Mercedes following his win in Spain.
Ferrari has a good record in Belgium, with Charles Leclerc winning last year and Sebastian Vettel the year before. Let's hope for an action-packed race, but Hamilton has to be the favourite at a race he has won three times.
