F1 Singapore Grand Prix Live Stream: How to Watch the 2016 Formula 1 GP online

Now that the back-to-back Belgian and Italian Grands Prix are out the way, the teams move on to the other side of the world for the Singapore Grand Prix.

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

Singapore has become a firm favourite on the circuit and is considered a classic, second only to Monaco. Nico Rossberg will be looking to take his third win in a row, having taken the top step in both Belgium and Italy. His team mate Lewis Hamilton will be looking to hold on to the overall lead which he currently has by two points.

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 using our computers, tablets, and mobiles.

While the highlights will be shown on Channel 4, you’re going to need access to the Sky Sports channels if you want to keep up with all the action in Singapore as it happens.

Channel 4

Firstly, Channel 4’s highlight coverage breaks down like this:

17th September – 17:30 – Qualifying Highlights

18th September – 18:00 – Race Highlights

You can watch both these shows through the Channel 4 website by 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 will be available through the same app.

All4 app | Android | iOS

If you’d prefer to get more in-depth coverage through Sky Sports, you don’t need a full Sky subscription, you can simply 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.

This Sky Sports day pass costs £6.99, which will grant you 24 hours of access to all of Sky’s sporting coverage, including the Sky Sports F1 channel, while the £10.99 pass will get you a full seven days of access – which is the option we recommend if you want to see all the coverage.

The schedule on Sky looks like this:

Friday 16th September

2.15pm – Singapore GP: Practice 2 – Live

4.15pm – Team Principals’ Press Conference

4.45pm – The F1 Show

5.15pm – Singapore GP: Practice 1 – Replay

Of course, if you do have a full Sky subscription, including the sports channels, you can simply head over to the Sky Go site and sign in to watch the coverage online.

And that’s it – all you need to know in order to watch the action live online.
