At qualifying, Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton narrowly beat out Red Bull's Max Verstappen and McLaren's Lando Norris to get the pole position. His Mercedes teammate George Russell didn't make it out of Q1, thanks in part to a traffic jam up.
The practice sessions kicked off terribly for Sergio Perez, gaining another reason for any of his anxiety to get worse. The bad news for Checo began with Red Bull bringing in Daniel Ricciardo to replace Nyck de Vries for the rest of the season, putting the Aussie in Perez's rear-view mirror as he's not gotten along well with Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen this season. Then, practice 1 saw Checo crash into the wall in his first lap.
Previously, at Silverstone, Verstappen took his sixth consecutive victory of this season, coming in atop homer favorites Lando Norris (No. 2) of McLaren and Lewis Hamilton (No. 3) of Mercedes. It was, though, a much more entertaining race than in previous weeks.
The full schedule is below, and lights are out at the Hungarian Grand Prix at 9 a.m. ET / 6 a.m. PT / 2 p.m. BST / 12 a.m. AEDT today (Sunday, July 23). Make sure you don't miss a second of it by watching a Hungarian Grand Prix live stream — potentially for FREE.

FREE Hungarian Grand Prix live streams
How to watch the 2023 F1 Hungarian Grand Prix live stream for FREE
If you're lucky enough to live in Austria or Luxembourg then you can enjoy every second of the F1 Hungarian Grand Prix live stream for FREE. And this is one of the weekends where Americans can watch for free too.
That's because the free-to-air RTL Zwee in Luxembourg will be showing every session of the Grand Prix, as will ServusTV in Austria. As will ABC, which you may get over-the-air via one of the best TV antennas.
But what if you're usually based in one of those countries but aren't at home for the Hungarian Grand Prix live stream? Maybe you're on holiday and don't want to spend money on pay TV in another country, when you'd usually be able to watch for free at home?
Don't worry — you can watch it via a VPN instead. We'll show you how to do that below.
Safety, speed and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. It's also compatible with loads of devices and there's a 30-day money-back guarantee if you want to try it out.
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.
2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.S. and want to view an Austrian service, you'd select Austria from the list.
3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to ORF or another website and watch the race.
2023 Hungarian Grand Prix live streams around the world
How to watch the F1 Hungarian Grand Prix live stream in the US
As with many of the F1 races this season, the 2023 British Grand Prix live stream will be shown on ESPN. Coverage will be spread across ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPN3 (for the first practice) and ESPNEWS, with the race itself on ESPN and ESPN Plus.
ESPN is on Sling Orange and Fubo. As well as being available through your cable service, you can also stream the race via the ESPN app, or on the Watch section of ESPN's website. However, you'll need to authenticate with your satellite, cable or live TV provider credentials to watch any sessions.
If you don't want to pay for live ESPN in some fashion or another, your best alternative is F1 TV Pro. This is F1's own official F1 live stream service, and as with ESPN's own coverage, it uses the feed from Sky Sports F1.
F1 TV Pro costs $10 per month or $80 for the season, which is much better value considering there are 23 races this year. Plus you also get Formula 2, Formula 3 and Porsche Supercup races, and F1's archive of classic Grands Prix.
And remember, if you're usually based in the U.S. but aren't there at the moment, you can still watch the services you already subscribe to via a VPN such as ExpressVPN — meaning you can view the F1 British Grand Prix live stream from anywhere in the world.
If you're not already a Sling TV subscriber, you'll want Sling Orange in order to watch ESPN. This costs $40/month and includes dozens of other great channels. Recent deals have included 50% off for your first month.
Love sports? Then check out Fubo.TV. It's got a 7-day free trial so you don't need to pay up front. The channel lineup includes ESPN and ESPN2, plus other top networks including Bravo, FX and MTV.
How to watch the 2023 F1 Hungarian Grand Prix live stream in the UK
As usual, Sky Sports F1 will show the 2023 Hungarian Grand Prix live stream, and in up to 4K resolution. And since this race is in the UK, Channel 4 will also air the event.
You'll need to be a Sky Sports subscriber to watch its F1 live streams: the Sky Sports F1 channel is available for £15 per month (Sky Q is required), and there are packages available that give you lots more channels for only a bit extra.
To follow it in ultra high-definition 4K, you'll need to pay a little more: you'll need a Sky Q set-top box or Sky Glass and a package that includes both Ultra HD and Sky Sports F1. In total, that'd come to at least £45 a month, plus a £20 one-off payment if you're not an existing subscriber.
A far cheaper option is to buy a Now Sports Pass. For all 11 Sky Sports channels, you'll want the £33.99 package for one month. There's no 4K available here, though.
Again, if you're usually based in the U.K. but are elsewhere at the moment, you can still watch the services you subscribe to by using one of the best VPN services.
How to watch the 2023 F1 Hungarian Grand Prix live stream in Canada
TSN has the Hungarian Grand Prix live stream in Canada in English on TSN4, while RDS has coverage in French. F1 TV Pro also remains an option for fans.
All sessions are broadcast on TSN, and if you receive the network through your cable or satellite provider, you can use TSN Go by signing in with your TV service credentials. Cord-cutters will want to check out TSN Direct, which comes in day- and month-long passes for $8 or $20 CAD, respectively. The TSN app will allow you to live stream the race from your phone, streaming box or supported device.
Not actually in Canada at the moment? ExpressVPN and other VPN services can help you access the services you already subscribe to.
How to watch the 2023 F1 Hungarian Grand Prix live stream in Australia
Fox Sports has the rights to the Hungarian Grand Prix live stream in Australia, which means you can watch all the action online via Foxtel.
Kayo Sports is another option. This service offers new subscribers a 14-day free trial, while one-month subscriptions start at $25.
You can also use one of the best VPN services to follow the action from your home country even when you're elsewhere.
