Miami GP: race preview

After last week's distinctly unspectacular outing, F1 fans around the world will have their fingers crossed that the Miami Grand Prix will deliver some excitement. With the distinct possibility of rain and even thunder, we may well see Red Bull having to put up more of a fight than usual.

Azerbaijan saw veteran Fernando Alonso's first non-podium finish of the season, and despite trailing Ferrari's Charles Leclerc by less than a second, the Spaniard couldn't edge past the Monogasque.

Sergio Perez proved his street circuit talents once again by beating teammate Max Verstappen, and will certainly be hoping for a repeat performance at the Miami International Autodrome. What’s more, in Qualifying, Perez took pole, followed by Aston Martin’s Alonso. A crash by Leclerc saw Verstappen unable to set a fast lap, meaning the champion will be starting in 9th. Will he still make the podium?

Snaking its way around the Hard Rock Stadium, the circuit is a street-style circuit, and is unique in being the only F1 race that uses a temporary course that doesn't include any public roads.

What's more, we're back to the classic format in the Magic City, so we'll get plenty of practice sessions and Qualifying will take place on Saturday.

Read on for how to watch a Miami Grand Prix live stream from start to finish and from anywhere in the world, including ways to watch an F1 live stream for FREE.

If you're abroad for this weekend's Miami Grand Prix, you'll likely find you're unable to access your usual Formula 1 coverage like you would at home.

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.
