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

Spanish Formula 1 Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton's 3-race winning streak was snapped by Max Verstappen last week. Who will reign in Spain? This is how to follow the action.

SUMMARY: The Spanish Grand Prix is live and exclusive to Fox Sports. So unless you're already an existing Foxtel customer, your best option is to watch live on Kayo Sports. You can watch Formula 1 for free using this 14-day trial. This gets you access to all its unique features and 50 additional live sports.

Just as Lewis Hamilton appeared to be cruising to world championship number seven, Red Bull's Max Verstappen claimed last week's 70th Anniversary GP at Silverstone. That cut Hamilton's lead in the standings to 30 points.

The revamped schedule now shifts to Spain for the Spanish GP at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. Verstappen will be hoping to make further inroads into Hamilton's lead, while the Brit will be keen to quickly bounce back to the top of the podium.

When is the Spanish Formula 1 Grand Prix?

This grand prix schedule is being held from 14–16 August. Two practice sessions on Friday and another practice plus qualifying on Saturday precede Sunday's race. Qualifying starts at 11pm on Saturday, with the race commencing at 11:10pm AEST on Sunday 16 August.

Can I watch Spanish Formula 1 Grand Prix on free-to-air?

No. Channel 10 is showing one-hour highlight programs on Monday nights for some of this year's races, including the Spanish GP. They will be shown on 10 Bold and 10 play, this week at 10:20pm AEST. There is no live race coverage on free-to-air TV in 2020.

Who will win Spanish Formula 1 Grand Prix?

We've been taking the easy route and picking Hamilton to win most of the races this year. He won't be thrilled by his runner-up finish last week and will be determined to set that right. As a neutral observer it would be good to see a competitive championship race in 2020. This week we'll opt for his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas to sneak to the top of the podium.
