Spanish Grand Prix 2020: How to watch the F1 action

Spanish Grand Prix 2020: Lewis Hamilton pulled further ahead of Valtteri Bottas after the Finn again left Silverstone rather unhappy. However, Mercedes didn’t win the race, as Max Verstappen comfortably beat the Silver Arrows to go into second place in the championship. This weekend is likely to revert back to the mean if first and second practice sessions are any evidence. There was one surprise as Romain Grosjean managed to nab fifth place in the Haas, while both Sebastian Vettel and Alex Albon were off their teammates’ pace. With Mercedes looking much happier despite the high temperatures, can anyone else stop it from being another weekend of Mercedes domination?

Our guide explains how to catch this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix action, including channels and UK times for practice races, qualifying and, of course, the main event. Plus, how to live stream everything and keep your data safe.
