Miami will play host to an exciting round of F1 Grand Prix action as Red Bull and Ferrari look set to fight it out again.

SUMMARY: The F1 Miami Grand Prix is on Fox Sports. If you are already a Foxtel iQ customer with the Sports HD pack, 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.

After Ferrari had dominated the early rounds, the Red Bull empire returned fire in their rival's own back yard with success at Imola a fortnight ago. Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez went 1-2 in Italy and in the process closed the gap on the leaders.

Ferrari's Charles Leclerc still leads the way despite his 6th placed finish at Imola. Aussie Daniel Ricciardo ended up 18th at his last start, and sits 11th in overall standings.

The main race is on Monday 9 May at the Miami International Autodrome in Florida, USA.

The practice sessions begin on Saturday 7 May at the early time of 4:30am AEST, and continue at 3am AEST Sunday.

Stream F1 Miami Grand Prix live on Kayo Sports

While the F1 Miami GP practice and qualifying sessions are part of Kayo Freebies, the main race itself requires a subscription.

Kayo Sports is the home of all major motorsport for Australians. It has every F1 and V8 Supercar race, as well as NASCAR and MotoGP. If you are yet to try it out, Kayo has a 14-day free trial for new customers.

Following the free trial period, a Basic subscription will cost you $25 a month and gives you access to 2 screens or devices.

Get in quick though, as Kayo recently announced a price rise for its Basic package.

A bonus with Kayo is that you can watch live or on demand. You can also choose to watch from the start or in the middle of a live event. This could be handy if getting up at 5:30am is a struggle for you.

Who will win the F1 Miami Grand Prix?

The Miami International Autodrome is the 76th venue to host a top tier F1 race, and it feels in many ways like the perfect American location for such an event.

The track was purpose built for this event so it promises to be a wonderful spectacle, and it comes at a time when the championship is heating up.

Ferrari were the early frontrunners but both Red Bull and Mercedes are chipping away at them again. There have been slight hints that the wheel is perhaps turning back towards Max Verstappen and this race will tell us plenty.

We think the defending champion Verstappen will bridge the gap even more this week and win.

Check out a rundown of this season's F1 calendar, teams and all the drivers.
