How to watch 2023 F1 live stream in Australia

Every race of the Formula 1 World Championship is being broadcast live into Australia, so you never have to miss a session.

SUMMARY: You can watch F1 live via Foxtel Now, Kayo Sports and Foxtel iQ. None of the services offer a free trial anymore, so we'd suggest signing up to Kayo as it's half the price of Foxtel Now.

F1 returns in 2023 with a 23-race calendar. There were originally 24 races scheduled, but the planned Chinese GP was cancelled due to the ongoing COVID situation in the country. Even though there's 1 fewer race than originally planned, it's still a record season. It also features the debut of the Las Vegas GP and the return of the Qatar Grand Prix. If you're eager to live stream F1, there's plenty of coverage.

Max Verstappen is defending champion after winning his second championship in a row in 2022. He had such a dominant year that he took the record for the most wins in a single season with 15, surpassing the previous record of 13. He once again looks like the driver to beat in 2023 and Red Bull the team to beat.

Australians will have a keen interest in Oscar Piastri, who is racing for McLaren in 2023, taking compatriot Daniel Ricciardo's place. After a stint as a reserve driver for his old team, Red Bull, Ricciardo made a return to the track for the AlphaTauri team ahead of the Hungarian Grand Prix.

How to watch F1 live in Australia

The rights to broadcast a Formula 1 live stream through Australia are owned by Foxtel, which means you can watch via Foxtel Now, Foxtel iQ or Kayo. It broadcasts the 3 practice sessions, qualifying and the race itself.

The only live free-to-air TV coverage available for F1 is the Australian Grand Prix on Channel 10 and 10 play.

Channel 10 used to screen highlights of F1 races on the Monday following the event, but it is no longer doing this in 2023. So the only place to catch up on F1 if you miss it will be via Foxtel or Kayo.

Can I live stream F1 on F1 TV?

After Foxtel announced that F1 TV Pro was coming to Australia in 2023, it is being launched ahead of the 2023 Australian Grand Prix. An F1 TV Pro subscription will be available to Foxtel Sport subscribers with an iQ4 or iQ5 set-top box at no extra cost. The F1 TV app will be integrated into iQ4 and iQ5 set-top boxes and will show multiple live in-race feeds, comprehensive live timing data, highlights and exclusive programming.

The F1 TV Pro subscription is not available separately in Australia without a Foxtel subscription. If you don't have a Foxtel subscription, only F1 TV Access is available on its own in Australia, which just features live timings, team audio and telemetry data from the race weekend, but no live streaming of the main race itself.

If you don't have Foxtel but want F1 TV Access to enhance your live viewing experience, it costs $4.49 a month or $34.99 a year. There is a full F1 TV guide available with more information.

      Hi Nathan,
      Sorry you had trouble with Kayo trying to watch the F1. It is most definitely on the service, so it sounds like you need to contact them direct to see what the issue was and why you were unable to watch. Unfortunately they don’t have a phone number, you can only contact them online. Details can be found here:
      Hope this helps.
