F1 live streams are back for 2022, and the action has now moved on to the Miami Grand Prix live stream today. The race starts at 3.30 p.m. ET / 8.30 p.m. BST and you'll definitely want to know how to watch F1 live streams from abroad with a VPN, if you're not at home right now.

F1 live streams: Next Grand Prix

The 2022 F1 Miami Grand Prix starts at 3.30 p.m. ET / 8.30 p.m. BST today (Sunday, May 8).
► FREE LIVE STREAMS ServusTV (Austria) / ABC (U.S.)
► U.K.Sky Sports or Now
► Watch anywhere — Try ExpressVPN 100% risk free

The good news if you're in the U.S. is that the race itself is being shown FOR FREE on ABC. And if you're not in the States? Well it's also being aired live for free on Austria's ServusTV service.

Miami is the first of two Grands Prix in the United States this season, and next year there'll be a third in the form of the Las Vegas GP. And it looks like being a great addition to the calendar: it's a street-circuit style track that winds around the Hard Rock Stadium complex that also houses the Miami Dolphins.

Ferrari's Charles Leclerc certainly seems to be a fan of it, having taking pole position yesterday. He'll start alongside his teammate Carlos Sainz, with Red Bull's Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez in third and fourth. Lewis Hamilton, meanwhile, managed to wrestle his Mercedes to sixth, just behind his former teammate Valtteri Bottas; their dual could be pretty interesting…

Head over to our dedicated F1 Miami Grand Prix live stream article for full details on how qualifying went, or read on for details of how to watch F1 live streams throughout the 2022 season, wherever you are in the world.

FREE F1 live streams

How to watch F1 live streams for FREE in 2022

If you're lucky enough to live in the Austria or Luxembourg then you can look forward to FREE F1 live streams throughout 2022.

That's because the free-to-air RTL Zwee in Luxembourg will be showing every race, while ServusTV and ORF will share the rights in Austria. 

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.

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, 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. It's fast, works on loads of devices and even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee. 

ExpressVPN

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 ServusTV or another website and watch the race.

How to watch F1 live streams in the US

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 Miami Grand Prix this weekend on ABC. The Austin and Mexican Grands Prix will also be shown for free 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. 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 — meaning you can view an F1 live stream from anywhere in the world. 

Sling TV

If you're not already a Sling TV 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.

Fubo.TV

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 ESPN2 and ABC, plus other top networks including Bravo, FX and MTV.

How to watch F1 live streams in the UK

As usual, Sky Sports F1 will show all of the F1 live stream action in 2022, and in up to 4K resolution. 

You'll need to be a Sky Sports 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. 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.

How to watch F1 live streams in Canada

TSN airs all F1 live streams in Canada in English, while RDS has coverage in French. F1 TV Pro 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, 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 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

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.
