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.

Live Broadcast Information

Right now, no live stream of the F1 season exists, meaning fans will have to follow the action via traditional TV broadcasts, radio or highlights packages.

Some regions have free-to-air live broadcasts, while others have subscription package deals. In the UK for example, subscription to Sky Sports F1 is required to watch each race live, with Channel 4 showing same-day highlights packages for those without a pass.

Formula 1 German Grand Prix 2019 (Live Stream)

Lewis Hamilton heads to this weekend’s German Grand Prix with the wind in his sails, having notched up a seventh Formula 1 win of the season at Silverstone with Mercedes.

The five-time champion claimed a record sixth win at his home circuit for the British Grand Prix, with that victory allowing him to extend his lead at the top of the standings to 39 points from team-mate Valtteri Bottas.

Ferrari No Win In 2019

Despite reaching the season’s halfway point, Ferrari duo Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc have yet to record a win in 2019.

Vettel has endured a problematic season, with the high-profile off at Canada’s Circuit Gilles Villeneuve robbing him of a win, before a clumsy touch with Max Verstappen last time out ruined any chance of points there.

Leclerc meanwhile has looked the stronger of the pair, with wins at Bahrain and Austria eluding him. Vettel will no doubt wish to see his home race the start of a turnaround in fortunes.

Austrian Grand Prix winner Max Verstappen has shown strong consistency to hold third in the standings, comfortably outperforming under-pressure team-mate Pierre Gasly, although fourth for the French Red Bull driver at Silverstone marked his first finish higher than his team-mate.

Carlos Sainz Jr leads the ‘best of the rest’ as the McLaren cars demonstrate good pace, ahead of 2007 champion Kimi Raikkonen in the Alfa Romeo.

The midfield tussle continues to be tightly contested between McLaren, Renault, Haas, Alfa Romeo, Toro Rosso and Racing Point.

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.
