The event starts today with practice sessions, continues Saturday with qualifying, and finishes Sunday, when the big race takes place.

And while there’ll be no shortage of coverage for those with access to a TV, many of us will be looking for ways of keeping up with developments at Hungaroring using our computers, tablets, and mobiles.

Luckily, there’s plenty of options when it comes to watching the race, qualifiers, and practice sessions online.

Firstly, Channel 4 is covering the action across the weekend. Here’s the schedule:

Today 12.55 to 14.40  – Practice 2 live
Saturday 9.55 to 11.25 – Practice 3 live
Saturday 11.55 to 13.00 – Qualifying live
Sunday 11.30 to 13.00 – Hungarian Grand Prix live

You can watch all the coverage online by heading over to the Channel 4 website and using the player to watch live TV through your browser. If you don’t have an account, you’ll have to sign up, but it’s just a case of giving them an email address and shouldn’t take too long.

Alternatively, if you want to watch on a mobile device, you can download the All 4 app, which also lets you watch live. Catchup is also available through the same app.

If you’d prefer to watch through Sky Sports, which is also showing coverage of the GP2 and GP3 races, which will supplement the Formula One races, you don’t need a Sky subscription.

You can sign up through Now TV. All you need to do is head to the Now TV website, or download the Now TV app, sign up, and buy a Sky Sports Pass.
