How to watch F1 Spain Grand Prix live and free in Australia

Posted: 22 May 2022 5:00 pm

Spain takes centre stage in F1 as Max Verstappen guns for a third straight victory.

SUMMARY: The Spain F1 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. New customers can watch for free using this 14-day trial.

Max Verstappen has roared to life with victories at Imola and Miami in the last month propelling him to second on the driver's championship. He's wedged between Ferrari's Charles Leclerc on top and ahead of his own teammate Sergio Pérez.

Ferrari ran second and third in Miami so they remain a danger, but they'd love a victory to put the genie back in the bottle and maintain their advantage over Verstappen and the Red Bull team.

When is F1 Spain?

The main race gets underway at 11pm AEST on Sunday 22 May.

Who will win F1 Spain?

Reigning champion Max Verstappen claimed his third victory of the year in Miami and is nipping at the heels of Charles Leclerc who was the early season pace-setter.

"I think we have been in only one position since the beginning of the season, which means we are hunted for now," Leclerc said at the press conference after the Miami race.

"I quite like this position to be honest, because it means that you are doing something right."

A third double-podium of the year for Ferrari after Carlos Sainz's third-place finish ensured the team remained on top of the constructor's championship.

Lewis Hamilton has won the last 5 editions of the Spanish Grand Prix, but he and his team have found the going tough this year, sitting sixth with only 1 podium finish so far.

This might be the venue to spark them to life, but even if it does, Max Verstappen is still the likely victor.
