Canadian Grand Prix: How to watch F1 live on TV and online

The Spanish Grand Prix saw Red Bull’s Max Verstappen cruise to another victory, while a resurgent Mercedes completed the rest of the podium spots.

It’s safe to assume that it’ll be Red Bull competing for top spot on the rostrum, but the picture behind them has become a bit more competitive. Mercedes B-spec car appeared to give them a performance advantage compared to Aston Martin and Ferrari, but it could also have been a performance that was track dependent.

Aston Martin will be getting updates for this weekend’s race that they’re hoping will bring them closer to Red Bull and ward off any challenges from Mercedes. Ferrari appear to having a bad time with a car that’s not particularly fast in the corners, and updates that appear to have upset the balance of the car. The Scuderia need a big performance, and soon.

There’s a high chance of rain across the weekend, and some of the best Canadian Grand Prix have come in mixed weather (remember Jenson Button coming from last to win on the last lap?). To find out what’s going to happen, here’s how to watch the Canadian Grand Prix.
