This guide will show you how you can watch the entire Formula 1 2018 season live online from anywhere in the world.
Formula 1 is back for 2018 and this season is bound to be as exciting as the last. Unfortunately depending on where you live in the world depends what kind of access you’ll get for watching Formula 1.
In some countries you’ll be able to watch full coverage for free, in others you’ll need to pay for full or some coverage and in some countries, you won’t get any Formula 1 on TV at all.
The good news is if you’re a Formula 1 fan and you want to watch the entire season. We’ve got a way using a completely legal stream how you can watch all races on official networks.
Just follow our simple guide below to find out how.
Watch Formula 1 2018 live
Formula 1 is being shown live across the world in some countries in full. It’s being shown on free-to-air TV networks that also show the event online for free.
If you’re outside the intended country then you’ll be blocked from viewing.
However, there’s an app called a VPN that will allow you to alter your online location so it makes it appear as if you are in that country. The result is you can watch all the Formula 1 action live online from any country.
To get a VPN and use it just follow the simple instructions below:
- Visit the VPN provider NordVPN and sign-up to their service.
- Go to the VPN Apps area of the NordVPN website and download the correct app for your device.
- Install the app, run it and login when required.
- You’ll next need to select the correct country for the stream from the schedule below, either the UK or Austria.
- Press Connect.
It takes around 15 seconds for the NordVPN app to get connected.
Once you’re connected you can head over to the correct websites for the race you’re trying to watch.
For example, if you wanted to watch the China F1 race then you would select Austria on the NordVPN app and then click the link below to visit ORF to watch the race.
Just check the schedule below to see where you need to connect to and what network to watch on.
Formula 1 2018 Schedule
You can find out the dates and venue of every race below.
All you need to do on the VPN app is connect to the country listed below under Connect to and then click on the link under the TV Network column which will take you to the correct website for streaming the race.
|Date||Venue||Formula 1 Grand Prix||TV Network||Connect to|
|08/07/18||Silverstone||Great Britain||Channel 4||UK|
|25/11/18||Yas Marina||Abu Dhabi||Channel 4||UK|
Are VPNs even legal?
You might be surprised to know that VPN apps are completely legal in nearly all countries in the world.
Their real purpose is to protect your online privacy. As a sideline to that, it allows you to disguise what country you’re in which is what in turn allows you to stream from overseas network providers.
When you usually visit one of the sites above either ORF or Channel 4 and you’re outside their intended country they block you.
Using a VPN makes it seem as if you are in that country and so the website lets you stream the entire race.
So yes, VPN apps are completely legal.
Formula 1 2018 Season predictions
Lewis Hamilton won the 2017 F1 season convincingly but it’s hard to predict who will take the title this year.
Hamilton has a good chance of regaining his crown but there are 4 main teams who will all put up stiff competition this year.
There have been some technological changes this year to some of the cars and with different engines, the playing field between the teams has become much closer.
Ferrari, Red Bull and Mercedes look like the top contenders this year but McLaren won’t be far behind in terms of competing for the title.
Pre-season testing offered little in the way of ideas of who will win this year and the Barcelona event left more questions than answers.
In winter testing Hamilton got the fastest lap time with Vettel not far behind. Who will win is anyone’s guess.
