The Formula 1 2019 season has made it to Russia, where Mercedes continues to dominate or fall back on Ferrari models. Watch out, Hamilton, this could be a tricky track. You can stream the Grand Prix of Russia 2019 live – no matter where in the world you are – and with this handy guide you can see exactly where you can see it.
Russian Grand Prix 2019 – where and when
Russia is the venue of the sixteenth Grand Prix of the 2019 season. A challenging 5.8 km circuit runs around the Sochi Autodrome.
The times you need to know are as follows, all first in Russian local time Moscow (GMT + 3):
Exercise 1 Friday, September 27, 11 am (9 am CET, 1 pm PT, 4 pm ET).
Practice 2 Friday, September 27, 3 pm (1 pm CET, 5 am CEST, 8 am CET)
Exercise 3 Saturday, September 28 at 12 pm (10 am CET, 2 pm PT, 5 pm ET).
qualification Saturday, September 28th at 3pm local time (1pm CET, 5am PT, 8pm ET).
The Russian Grand Prix starts on Sunday, September 29, at 2:10 pm local time. So that's 12.10 BST, 4.10 PT, 7.10 ET.
This F1 season was full of tire squeezing fun and excitement will continue to complete the test track in Sochi, Russia. The track is essentially a street circuit created from the internal roads of the 2014 Winter Olympics. In the same year, the first Grand Prix took place, which was won by Lewis Hamilton, who has won him three times.
Last year, Hamilton won controversial when teammate Bottas was instructed to let him pass the lead. This year, Mercedes has more medium and hard tires than the rest of the field. Since the smooth asphalt of the track does not bother gum, you should expect a one-stop strategy for this route.
Hamilton leads the overall standings with his teammate Bottas in second place and Charles Leclerc or Ferrari are in third place after Max Verstappen of Red Bull Racing returned to fourth place after last week's race results.
You can watch all the exciting races with an F1 live stream from all over the world – this is how it's done.
So look at the Russian Grand Prix from outside your country
To see F1 live streaming from the Russia Grand Prix in the United Kingdom, Australia, the United States, Canada and New Zealand, scroll down this page to see the send options. However, if you try to access your native stream from outside your country, you will soon find that it is blocked.
Here a VPN can be really useful. With this software, you can simulate the IP address of your laptop (or mobile phone, tablet, streaming device, console, etc.) to be in a completely different country. Ideal, provided it does not violate the terms and conditions of the broadcaster you want to tune in to.
This may sound complicated, because VPNs – or virtual private networks – are actually surprisingly easy to use. Just pick one of our top three VPN picks (or opt for our preferred ExpressVPN), open it, and choose the country of your choice from the Select Location menu Back to Home. Easy!
Sign up for ExpressVPN now With an annual subscription you get 49% discount and 3 months FREE. Or try the 30-day money-back guarantee. It's fast, secure, easy to use and works on pretty much any mobile device and streaming box you can imagine.

Take a look at the Russian Grand Prix in the US: Live Stream F1
In the US, ESPN has the right to show the F1 live (using Sky's British coverage). This is great news if you have cables, but if you are a cable cutter you can try and watch a free trial for another streaming service like Sling and Fubo.

How to get a F1 Livestream in New Zealand
As in the UK, Sky Sports has offered exclusivity to showcase all F1 live streams from 2019. As you will undoubtedly know, it is not cheap. But there are ways to get cheap access.
