Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix 2019 (Live Stream)

As the 2019 Formula 1 season heads to Montreal in Canada this weekend, the duel between the Mercedes and Ferrari camps is hotting up. We guide you through ways to watch.

Following on from a tense Monaco Grand Prix in which Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton had to desperately hang on for the win amid tyre drop-off woes, the Silver Arrows will arrive in North America heading both championships but without a first 1-2 of the season.

Despite Ferrari’s lead in pre-season testing, Mercedes claimed the front two positions at all of the first five races of the season, with Vettel only managing to claim his first top two position of the 2019 campaign around the streets of Monte Carlo.

Valtteri Bottas in the Merc will want to bounce back from third in Monaco to get back on terms with team-mate Hamilton, as Vettel’s team-mate Charles Leclerc aims to be the top Prancing Horse this time around.

Red Bull remains the third quickest team, although Max Verstappen has comfortably outperformed an under-pressure Pierre Gasly.

Circuit Gilles Villeneuve

The long straights and slow corners around Montreal should make for plenty of overtaking opportunities – particularly in the tight midfield behind Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull.

McLaren is leading that midfield scrap thank to Carlos Sainz Jr and rookie Lando Norris banking important points, although arguably the Haas has looked like the quicker machine.

The close nature of that group, also featuring Renault, Racing Point, Toro Rosso and Alfa Romeo, means consistency of results could have a big impact in how the season unfolds.

Williams at the back of the grid needs to make progress each weekend with George Russell and Robert Kubica if it has any hope of lifting itself off the bottom of the standings.

Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix 2019 (Live Stream)

Another Mercedes 1-2 at the Spanish Grand Prix for Mercedes has extended the team’s dominance at the top of the Formula 1 standings heading to Monaco this weekend.

Ferrari will be looking to bounce back at the jewel in the crown race on the F1 calendar, where 20 cars will thread their way through the narrow Monte Carlo streets.

The Silver Arrows have taken a remarkable five 1-2 finishes in the first five races of this season – a feat which no-one had predicted back in February testing when the Prancing Horse looked to have the strongest pace.

Valtteri Bottas is putting up a much stronger fight to team-mate Lewis Hamilton so far this year, sharing the wins between them, but it’s the British five-time champion who heads the standings.

Sebastian Vettel in the Ferrari was dicing hard with Charles Leclerc in Barcelona, but the close walls of Monte Carlo where Leclerc grew up will put a premium on clean racing.

Qualification Of The Year

With the track a tricky one to overtake on, the Saturday qualifying session will perhaps be the most important of the year.

Both Ferraris will be looking to capitalise on the minimised effect of having the best car, but don’t count out Red Bull and Max Verstappen stealing a good result too.

Verstappen’s team-mate Pierre Gasly has yet to score a top-five finish this year, so the under-pressure Frenchman will be looking to bank some strong points this weekend.

Other storylines to keep an eye on include the progress of Romain Grosjean, who had a messy Spanish Grand Prix in close quarter racing, while McLaren’s Lando Norris and Racing Point’s Lance Stroll will also want points after their clash on track in Spain.

Renault are continuing to make progress but are still adrift of the top three teams – could Monaco be the best chance to snatch a top six finish this year, or will closest challengers Haas be able to interrupt the party?

Live Broadcast Information

As ever, a live stream of the F1 race isn’t available, so fans looking to enjoy the action will need to tune in to their region’s broadcaster or watch post-race highlights programmes. Check your area’s broadcasting rights to find out if it is subscription fee or free-to-air.

Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix 2019 (Live Stream)

Published

Fresh from a fourth 1-2 of the 2019 Formula 1 season, Mercedes heads into this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix romping ahead in the points.

Melbourne winner Valtteri Bottas proved his aggressive new approach to the championship is paying dividends by claiming a second victory of the season last time out in Azerbaijan, making up for a lost win in 2018.

Bottas heads team-mate Lewis Hamilton by a single point in the standings, while Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel – yet to claim a win so far this season – is playing catch up in third.

It was another frustrating weekend for Ferrari’s newest talent Charles Leclerc, who had looked odds-on for pole before a chassis-wrecking shunt in qualifying left him having to work through the pack and finishing fifth.

Elsewhere, Red Bull’s Pierre Gasly is under pressure as team-mate Max Verstappen continues to outperform him.

McLaren’s Carlos Sainz Jr will be looking to build on his first points of the season at his home round.

The points for fastest lap continue to be a talking point of the season as world title hopefuls bid for the additional point on the scoreboard to maximise their weekends – on the evidence of the tight fight at the top it could prove all the difference.

Formula 1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix 2019 (Live Stream)

Published

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.

Live Broadcast Information

Unfortunately, a live stream of the F1 race is not yet available, with coverage only available to select TV broadcasters, however highlights are broadcast on free to air platforms afterwards.
