It’s time for the 2019 Belgian Grand Prix! The 13th stop on this year’s Formula One world tour is the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Stavelot, with practice, qualifying and the main race taking place across Friday, Saturday and Sunday. You’ll be pleased to hear that there are no (particularly) early morning starts this weekend.
Our guide explains how to catch this weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix action, including channels and UK times for practice races, qualifying and, of course, the main event. Plus, how to live stream everything, no matter where in the world you are.
Sebastian Vettel, who’s yet to win a single race this season, was victorious here last year, pipping Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen to the post. Can the German do it again?
Today’s race will take place under a black cloud. 22-year-old driver Anthoine Hubert was tragically killed in a crash on the track during Saturday evening’s F2 race.
