The 19th stop on this year’s Formula One world tour is the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, for the US Grand Prix. Lewis Hamilton extended his lead at the top of the table by winning the Mexico GP last week, but teammate Valtteri Bottas’ podium finish means that the Championship hasn’t quite been wrapped up yet. However, that will likely change in Texas this weekend.
Our guide explains how to catch this weekend’s US GP 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.
