F1 Miami Grand Prix 2022: how to watch 2022 F1 free online and on TV

F1 arrives at Miami's Autodrome for the first-ever 2022 Miami Grand Prix

The 2022 Miami Grand Prix qualifying starts at 9pm BST . Perez went fastest in final practice, Alpine’s Ocon crashed out, Charles Leclerc took 2nd ahead of arch-rival Max Verstappen. US fans can watch the whole race free on ABC, so make sure you know how to watch a Miami Grand Prix free from abroad when away from home.

Last week, the Red Bulls dominated a damp Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. Dutch superstar Max Verstappen revived his title hopes by taking top spot on the podium, while Championship leader Charles Leclerc of Monaco threw away third place and ended up sixth. That leaves Leclerc on 89 points, just 26 points ahead of Max going into Miami.

There’s plenty of of hype around the Miami Grand Prix. The all-new track features a fake marina, and we’ve been promised an opening ceremony “worthy of a Super Bowl”.

Ready for Formula 1’s big American move? The 2022 Miami Grand Prix takes place over 57 laps of the 5.412km Miami International Autodrome. The Miami GP weather is forecast to be a cloudy 32°C with a slight chance of rain.

US fans can watch the race free on ABC while Austrian fans can the whole weekend free (use a VPN to access your local free streams when abroad). We’ve listed all the ways to watch F1 in HD from your TV, tablet and mobile below.

You’ll need to use a VPN to access your local free F1 stream when abroad. We recommend ExpressVPN as it comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee.

Watch Miami Grand Prix from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant 2022 Miami Grand Prix holders, you won’t be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, helping you access local streams from where you are – and saving you money!

How to use a VPN for the Miami Grand Prix

Using a VPN for the Miami Grand Prix is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.

2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For the Miami Grand Prix, you may wish to choose ‘New York’ for ABC, or ‘Luxembourg’ for RTL Zwee.

3. Then head over to ABC or RTL Zwee on your browser or device and enjoy the free Miami Grand Prix live stream.

If, for whatever reason, you can’t get it working, do remember that you have the comfort of a 30-day money back guarantee with ExpressVPN. You could also try NordVPN, which also comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, and Surfshark which offers 24 hour assistance.
