Canadian GP: F1 schedule, UK times and how to watch on TV and online

The seventh race of the 2018 Formula 1 season is almost upon us, with the Canadian GP scheduled to kick off this weekend. Here’s our guide on how to watch the action unfold from the United Kingdom, including channels and times for practice races, qualifying and, of course, the main event.

Hamilton is top of the table with a total of 110 points, 2 wins and 5 podiums, followed by Vettel, who has 96 points, 2 wins and 3 podiums. Ricciardo is in third place with 72 points, 2 wins and 2 podiums, but the Canadian GP could shake the order up, providing a platform for Bottas, in fourth place, to leapfrog Ricciardo. 

Canadian Grand Prix Schedule: What time is the F1 on TV?

The Canadian Grand Prix is scheduled to kick off at 7:00 pm on June 10. You won’t have to wait till then, however, to watch Bottas, Hamilton, Ricciardo and the rest of the Canadian F1 competitors zip around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve – practice sessions will commence on June 8 and qualifying will take place on June 9.

Canadian Grand Prix: How to watch the Canadian GP online and on TV

Channel 4 and Sky both have TV rights for the 2018 Formula 1 season, and the Canadian GP is the seventh of the ten races that will be shown by both broadcasters – online and on live TV.

If you’re a Sky subscriber, you can watch everything – in 4K, no less – on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports F1. You can also catch the action using the Sky Go mobile app, at no additional charge. Here are some quick-links to help you:

Alternatively, you can watch all of the key events for free on Channel 4.

And finally, if you’re not a Sky customer, but desperately don’t want to miss a moment of the action, you can pick up a NOW TV Sports Pass, which will set you back £6.99 for a Day Pass or £10.99 for a Week Pass – the latter of which is the best value for F1 fans, as it will cover them from Friday to Sunday.

You can access Now TV in a number of ways, including apps for your phone, tablet or smart TV, or streaming devices and sticks. Now TV has its own dedicated streaming box that you can pick up for a bargain price alongside 3 months of the Entertainment Pass, for example.
