F1 live streams are now well into the second half of the season and the action has moved on to the Singapore Grand Prix live stream. The race is at 1 p.m. BST / 8 a.m. ET on Sunday, Oct. 2), and Max Verstappen could even win the title depending on how things go.

You can watch it all live for FREE depending on where you are. On holiday right now? No problem — because you can also watch F1 live streams from abroad with a VPN (opens in new tab).

F1 live streams: Next Grand Prix

The 2022 F1 Singapore Grand Prix starts at 1 p.m. BST / 8 a.m. ET / 5 a.m. PT on Sunday, Oct. 2).
► FREE LIVE STREAMS ORF (opens in new tab) (Aut) / RTL Zwee (opens in new tab) (Lux)
► U.S. — ESPN via SlingTV (opens in new tab)
► Watch anywhere — Try ExpressVPN 100% risk free (opens in new tab)

Wherever you watch it, you won't want to miss a second, because the Singapore Grand Prix could bring the season to an early conclusion. With Red Bull's Verstappen now 116 points ahead, with 25 points up for grabs, and with just five races left after this one, his lead could be unassailable by the time the Singapore GP ends.

For that to happen, Charles Leclerc has to finish ninth or lower, and Sergio Perez fifth or lower (unless Verstappen sets fastest lap, in which case it's eighth and fourth respectively).

Barring a DNF, Leclerc is likely to finish higher than that, so chances are Verstappen will need to wait until the Japanese Grand Prix to claim the title, but let's face it, it's going to happen. He's now won 11 races this season, and five in a row, and his performance at the Italian GP was as dominant as he's been all season.

Lights are out at 1 p.m. BST / 8 a.m. ET / 5 a.m. PT on Oct. 2 and the whole thing will air live for free on ORF (opens in new tab) in Austria and on Luxembourg's RTL Zwee (opens in new tab)— so make sure you read on to find out how to tune in.

FREE F1 live streams

How to watch F1 live streams for FREE in 2022

If you're lucky enough to live in Austria or Luxembourg then you can look forward to free F1 live streams of every Grand Prix in 2022.

That's because the free-to-air RTL Zwee (opens in new tab) in Luxembourg will be showing every race, while ServusTV (opens in new tab) and ORF (opens in new tab) will share the rights in Austria. The Singapore GP is on ORF.

But what if you're usually based in one of those countries but aren't at home for a particular F1 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.

F1 live streams around the world

How to watch the 2022 F1 live streams from anywhere with a VPN

It's natural that you might want to watch the 2022 F1 live streams from your home country, but what if you're not there when the race is on?

Look no further than a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN makes it look as if you're surfing the web from your home country, rather than the one you're in. That means you can access the streaming services you already pay for, from anywhere on Earth. Or anywhere that has an internet connection, at least.

For instance, an Austrian who's currently in the U.S. could watch the F1 live streams on ServusTV or ORF, even though they're not in Austria. 

They're totally legal, inexpensive and easy to use. We've tested lots of the best VPN services and our favorite right now is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab). It's fast, works on loads of devices and even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Safety, speed and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab) 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 ServusTV or another website and watch the race.

F1 live streams this season will generally be shown on ESPN, with coverage spread across the various ESPN channels. Note, though, that there'll be FREE coverage of the Austin and Mexican Grands Prix on ABC.

There are several ways you can access ESPN — and two of them are among our picks for the best streaming services

ESPN is available through most cable packages as well as cable TV replacement services, including Sling TV, Fubo.TV, YouTube TV and Hulu with Live TV.  

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 (opens in new tab). 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 22 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 (opens in new tab) — meaning you can view an F1 live stream from anywhere in the world. 

(opens in new tab)

If you're not already a Sling TV (opens in new tab) subscriber, you'll want Sling Orange in order to watch ESPN. This costs $35/month and includes dozens of other great channels. Sling currently offers 50% off the first month.

(opens in new tab)

Love sports? Then check out Fubo.TV (opens in new tab). The channel lineup includes ESPN2 and ABC, plus other top networks including Bravo, FX and MTV. Fubo offers a 7-day free trial.

As always, Sky Sports F1 will show all of the F1 live stream action, just as it will throughout 2022, and in up to 4K resolution. 

You'll need to be a Sky Sports (opens in new tab) subscriber to watch the F1 live streams: the Sky Sports F1 channel is available for £18 per month, 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 (opens in new tab). This will give you all 11 of the Sky Sports channels for a limited time, with pricing starting at £9.99 for a Day Pass and £33.99 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.

TSN airs all F1 live streams in Canada in English, while RDS has coverage in French. F1 TV Pro (opens in new tab) also remains an option for fans looking for an F1 live stream. 

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 (opens in new tab), which comes in day- and month-long passes for $8 or $20 CAD, respectively. The TSN app (opens in new tab) will allow you to live stream the race from your phone, streaming box or supported device.

Not actually in Canada at the moment? ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) and other VPN services can help you access the services you already subscribe to.

How to watch F1 live streams in Australia

Fox Sports has the rights to the F1 live streams in Australia, which means you can watch all the action online via Foxtel (opens in new tab)

Kayo Sports (opens in new tab) is another option. This service offers new subscribers a 7-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.
