Australian Grand Prix: How to watch F1 race on TV and online in the UK

The 2022 Formula 1 season is off to a flyer as we head into the Australian Grand Prix, one of the most iconic races in the calendar. Here’s how to watch the F1 Australian Grand Prix live in the UK

Ah, the Australian Grand Prix! Memories of staying up all night on Saturday night to watch the race, which was traditionally the first race in the F1 calendar. The Adelaide circuit provided the perfect curtain raiser for the season, despite the body clock-destroying start time in the UK.

While it’s no longer the first race in the campaign, it’s still on bloody early if you want to watch live. However, just like back in the day, it looks like the Ferraris might be on top. The first two races saw Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz Jnr, finish 1st and 2nd, and 2nd and 3rd respectively.

While world champ Max Verstappen earned victory in Saudi Arabia a couple of weeks back, the Mercedes driven by Lewis Hamilton looks well off the pace in the early going.

Here’s how to watch the Australian Grand Prix live on your best TV.

What UK time does the F1 Australian Grand Prix start?

The Australian Grand Prix will be shown live on Sky Sports F1, and in 4K HDR. The race starts at 6am UK time on Sunday morning April 10. Coverage starts at 4:30am.
