Formula 1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix 2019 (Live Stream)

Fresh from taking a second win of the season in China, Lewis Hamilton heads into the 2019 Azerbaijan Grand Prix this weekend having leapfrogged Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas in the Formula 1 standings.

Bottas claimed pole at the Shanghai circuit for F1’s 1000th championship event to continue his newfound vigour for 2019 following last year’s difficult season with the Silver Arrows.

But it was five-time champion Hamilton who snuck into the lead at the start and brought home the team’s third 1-2 finish in the three races so far this year.

Much of the drama lay behind the Merc pair however, headlined by the Ferrari team orders in which Charles Leclerc was ordered to let more experienced team-mate Sebastian Vettel past.

That helped secure third for the four-time champion, but compromised the Monegasque’s race, finishing fifth behind Max Verstappen’s Red Bull.

Pierre Gasly recorded sixth position and the additional point for fastest lap, but will be keen to get on song with team-mate Verstappen soon.

How will Renault perform?

Other talking points heading to the Azerbaijan street circuit of Baku includes the Renault performance, following the second successive MGUK failure in as many races, and Toro Rosso rookie Alexander Albon’s storming drive into the points following a shunt in Saturday practice – a feat which earned him the Driver of the Day mantle.

There were also questions following China when Toro Rosso returnee Dannil Kvyat was penalised for a clash with Carlos Sainz Jr in the McLaren that also hurt Lando Norris’ race. Kvyat needs a better result this weekend to ease those demons, while Sainz’s luckless start to the season could come to an end around the narrow Baku streets.

Formula 1 British Grand Prix 2019 (Live Stream)

The Mercedes annex of Formula 1 race wins in 2019 was finally broken by Max Verstappen and Red Bull in Austria – but championship leader Lewis Hamilton heads to the British Grand Prix this weekend with eyes on a seventh win of the season.

Until last weekend’s Spielberg round, Hamilton and Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas had shared the wins, with the Ferrari duo of Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc unable to convert their strong pre-season pace into a victory.

Red Bull has to date looked comfortably the third quickest team, but Verstappen was finally able to snatch a victory in the Styrian hills.

The big talking point coming out of the race was the aggressive overtake on Leclerc, who had appeared to be on for his first win of his F1 career. The Monegasque was understandably unhappy with the way in which Verstappen ran him all the way to the edge of the track to take the victory-sealing pass.

By comparison, Hamilton, Bottas and Vettel had a largely anonymous weekend, but all three will be hoping to bounce back at Silverstone this weekend.

Hamilton up for a home win?

Hamilton has notched up five wins at his home circuit, and will be looking to repay his faithful crowd with a sixth, while Bottas could do with the 25 points to get his title challenge back on track – the last win for the Finn having been in Azerbaijan.

Having lost wins in Bahrain and Austria, can Leclerc finally convert his storming pace to that debut trophy, or will Vettel open his 2019 account?

Elsewhere, an under-pressure Pierre Gasly has work to do after being lapped by team-mate Verstappen at the Red Bull home circuit in Austria – with talk already in the paddock of Toro Rosso’s Daniil Kvyat making a return.

In the midfield, the battle remains tight as McLaren, Renault, Alfa Romeo, Racing Point, Toro Rosso and Haas vie for ‘best of the rest’. McLaren has looked the strongest of those in the last two races with both Lando Norris and Carlos Sainz Jr having recorded a pair of top-nine finishes each.

Antonio Giovinazzi at Alfa Romeo will be looking to build on his first points-paying position from Austria, which means it is just the struggling Williams pair of George Russell and Robert Kubica yet to record a point.

Live Broadcast Information

Formula 1 still does not have a live stream available online, so fans wishing to catch all the action from Silverstone will need to tune in to their TV, radio or text commentary broadcasts.

Some TV broadcasters have full live race coverage, others have highlights packages – check your local broadcaster below for full details.

For UK fans, the British Grand Prix marks the only 2019 weekend where full live race coverage can be seen on Channel 4, which usually only broadcasts highlights, as well as the usual Sky Sports F1 channel coverage of the whole season.

Formula 1 Austrian Grand Prix 2019 (Live Stream)

Just a week on from another Mercedes whitewash at Paul Richard, Ferrari heads to this weekend’s Formula 1 Austrian Grand Prix with it all to prove.

Lewis Hamilton botched up an easy sixth win of the season ahead of team-mate Valtteri Bottas, while Charles Leclerc finished in third as the best Ferrari.

But both Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel are still hunting for a first win of the season as the F1 circus rolls into Spielberg, with pressure mounting on the team to catch up to Mercedes in the title fight.

Max Verstappen in the Red Bull – last year’s victor at the team’s home circuit – is still third quickest, although Pierre Gasly has yet to get on song with the Dutch driver.

Best of the Rest

Behind, the midfield battle remains tight as McLaren, Renault, Alfa Romeo, Haas and Racing Point all jostle for best of the rest.

Williams remains adrift at the bottom of the pile, with no upgrades expected for this weekend given the short turnaround from France.

Live Broadcast Information

As ever, a live stream of the F1 weekend remains unavailable, meaning fans will have to rely on TV broadcasts, radio or highlights.

Formula 1 French Grand Prix 2019 (Live Stream)

Published

Ferrari heads to the 2019 French Grand Prix at Paul Ricard this weekend in aggressive mood, having thrown away a first win of the Formula 1 season last time out in Canada.

Sebastian Vettel had been on course for the Prancing Horse to claim its first victory of the 2019 season in Montreal, before he was handed a five-second time penalty for a close-call with Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton having run wide and rejoined the track nearly touching the championship leader at the first chicane.

That allowed the five-time F1 champ to take his fifth win of the season, as the Silver Arrows continue the unbeaten run of victories so far this season.

Vettel was able to hang on for second ahead of team-mate Charles Leclerc, but the Ferrari duo desperately needs a victory to get the championship back on track and quash the Merc momentum.

Red Bull chasing the pack

Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly continue to chase the top two teams in their Red Bulls, although the team looks a comfortable third adrift from Ferrari and Mercedes but ahead of the chasing midfield teams.

Renault had decent pace at Canada to record sixth and seventh positions for Daniel Ricciardo and Nico Hulkenberg respectively, although the spectre of team orders from the French manufacturer left a sour taste for the German driver.

The dynamic between the pair will be one to watch at the head of the tight midfield fight, which also features McLaren, Haas, Alfa Romeo, Racing Point and Toro Rosso.

Lance Stroll recorded some much needed points in ninth ahead of another 10th place finish for Toro Rosso’s Daniil Kvyat.

Williams continues to struggle at the back as it attempts to make gains to catch the rest of the midfield ahead.
