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

Max Verstappen wrapped up his second drivers title at Suzuka, but all the talk this week at the Circuit of the Americas will be about whether Red Bull will be punished for breaching the cost cap measures.

And one of the punishments could be that Verstappen could lose his 2021 title. While that sounds unlikely at the moment, the other teams have been putting pressure on the FIA to act and take Red Bull to account.

And while the drivers and constructors championships are pretty much sewn up for this, the likes of Ferrari and Mercedes are still competing for second place behind the Bulls as they look to finish the season in a positive fashion.

The race to be best of the rest is also a topic of hot debate, with Alpine and McLaren still contesting fourth place with not much love lost between those two teams.

It doesn’t look like teams will be looking to take their foot of pedal even as the season winds down. To find out how to catch the action this weekend, here’s how to watch the United States F1 Grand Prix on TV and online.
