Max Verstappen could be crowned F1 king for the second successive year on Sunday, as the Red Bull star eyes victory at the Singapore Grand Prix. With a wet qualifying session, Leclerc starts pole with Perez and Hamilton in second and third - and with a poor wet performance, Verstappen starts 8th. Here's our full guide on how to watch a Singapore Grand Prix live stream online from anywhere.
Date: Sunday, October 2
Race start time: 8pm SGT (local) / 1pm BST / 2pm CEST / 8am ET / 5am PT / 10pm AEST / 12am NZST
Venue: Marina Bay, Singapore
FREE coverage: RTBF (Belgium)
Watch anywhere: try the No.1 VPN 100% risk-free
Depending on how other drivers finish at Marina Bay, registering the race's fastest lap along with crossing the finish line first could see the Verstappen lift the world championship. The Belgian-Dutchman would need teammate Sergio Perez to finish no higher than fourth, along with Chares Leclerc ending the race no higher than eighth to seal the title.
The defending champ comes into this race with a seemingly unassailable 115-point lead in the championship over Ferrari rival Leclerc, with his Red Bull team also enjoying a comfortable 139-point advantage over Ferrari in the constructors' championship.
One silver-lining for Ferrari is Red Bull's mediocre recent record in this street race, with RBR having never won a race under the lights in Singapore during the V6 hybrid era.
Read on for how to watch a Singapore Grand Prix live stream from start to finish and from anywhere in the world, including ways to watch for FREE.

Watch an Singapore Grand Prix free live stream from anywhere with a VPN
There are a number of ways to watch the Singapore Prix for free this weekend.
A full list of free-to-air streams can be found on our dedicated F1 live stream 2022 guide. In Austria for example, all the Grands Prix are shared between free-to-air broadcasters Servus TV and Orf (this weekend's is Orf). Take a look and find out what's available where you are. Another great option for those in Belgium is RTBF which also shows a free live stream.
Just remember that if you're abroad at the time you'll need to use a VPN to get the Singapore Grand Prix free live stream, as explained below. We rate ExpressVPN as the best provider out there, which has a great track record for unblocking geo-restricted streams.
How to watch the Singapore Grand Prix live stream from outside your country
If you're abroad for this weekend's Singapore Grand Prix, you'll likely find you're unable to access your usual Formula 1 coverage like you would at home. This isn't necessarily cause for alarm, but rather the result of geo-blocking – best understood as digital borders that restrict certain services and content to certain parts of the world.
Fortunately, there's a convenient way around this in the form of a VPN. This is a nifty bit of software that lets you whizz around these digital borders, thereby allowing you to globe trot and still access your preferred F1 live stream. It's a completely legal workaround, very affordable, and super easy to use – allow us to explain more.
