Italian Grand Prix 2020: How to watch the F1 action

How to watch the Italian Grand Prix: Lewis Hamilton stormed to his 94th pole position at Monza, delivering the fastest lap in F1 history. Valtteri Bottas was less than a tenth behind, but unless he can do something to get past Hamilton, Sunday’s race could see another win for the six-time world champion. McLaren’s Carlos Sainz picked up a surprise third, while Sergio Perez in the Pink Mercedes Racing Point nabbed fourth ahead of Max Verstappen. It could be a tough race for Red Bull, who never seem to go that well as Monza. Ferrari will be hoping they can slipstream through the pack after another disappointing qualifying session. While the battle for the win will be between the Mercedes, the race for the places behind look set to the most intriguing aspect of the race.

Our guide explains how to catch this weekend’s Italian 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.
