German Grand Prix 2019: TV schedule and live stream details

The 11th stop on the 2019 Formula One world tour is the Hockenheimring in Baden-Württemberg, a circuit that Lewis Hamilton has rather fond memories of. Yes, it’s time for the 2019 German Grand Prix, with practice, qualifying and the main race spread across Friday, Saturday and Sunday. You’ll be pleased to hear that there are no early morning starts this weekend.

Our guide explains how to catch this weekend’s German 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.

Hamilton has won the last two German GPs, and comes into this weekend’s race off the back of a memorable victory at Silverstone. With 223 points to his name, he’s way ahead of the pack. Mercedes teammate Valterri Bottas is his closest challenger, but he’s still a whopping 39 points off the pace.

The shockingly off-colour Sebastian Vettel is fourth and a full 100 points behind his arch-rival. Worse still for the German, he had a stinker at the German Grand Prix last year, crashing out having led the race.

But what’s this? Vettel led Ferrari to a one-two in first practice. Charles Leclerc was second fastest, with Hamilton just behind.
