How to watch F1 live on TV and online

Formula One is in the midst of a gruelling triple header of European Grand Prixs which ends this weekend at Monza, and it’s not the only thing that could be ended this week.

While it’s still mathematically possible for Charles Leclerc to claw back Max Verstappen’s gigantic points lead in the championship, it is looking increasingly unlikely with the form the Dutchman is in, having won the last four races. A second coronation for Red Bull driver seems to be only a few races away.

The Tifosi will be behind Ferrari the entire weekend to ensure there’s a driver in red on the stop step of the rostrum. Elsewhere, there will be questions about whether Mercedes can bring their form from the twisty nature of Zandvoort to Monza’s high-speed corners (unlikely), and the midfield scrap is developing nicely between Alpine and McLaren, who have some bad blood between after the tussle of young driver Oscar Piastri.

Currently there seems to be only one person likely to win this race, but you never know exactly what can happen, with Monza throwing up some surprise winners in the recent past.

If you want to catch the action this weekend, here’s how to watch the Italian F1 Grand Prix on TV and online.
