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

If Ferrari thought things couldn’t get worse after their botched strategy in Monaco, then they were wrong. Both Prancing Horses failed to see the chequered flag, handing the impetus to Red Bull as F1 journeys to the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve for the Canadian Grand Prix.

It’s been years since F1 was last in Montreal, and the popular track is back with its high-speed straights and is usually the scene for some spectacular crashes, the ‘Wall of Champions’ claiming many a victim.

With the FIA introducing technical directive to limit the effects of the bouncing or ‘porpoising’ as it’s colloquially known as, some teams could be further disadvantaged by having to raise their ride heights further.

Ferrari need an answer not just to Red Bull but their own reliability issues if they’re going to stay in the hunt for both championships. If you’re looking to catch the action this weekend, here’s how to watch the Canadian F1 Grand Prix on TV and online.
