Brazilian GP: race preview

Red Bull's Max Verstappen starts on pole. Ferrari's Charles Leclerc, who qualified second is OUT of the race after crashing on the formation lap due to a hydraulic failure. Aston Martin's Lance Stroll and Fernando Alonso start third and fourth. Today's Sao Paulo race starts at 12pm ET / 5pm GMT.

It's a sprint shootout and sprint race on Saturday at Interlagos, so there's plenty of points up for grabs. With Max having already bagged his third Driver's Championship, Sergio Perez may need his help to secure P2. In the mid-pack, Aston Martin have dropped from third to fifth – can they give McLaren a run for their money in Sao Paulo?

Elsewhere, Fernando Alonso has slammed paddock rumours that he is set to replace Sergio Perez at Red Bull next year. Oh, and some good news for Brazilian F1 fans: Formula 1 bosses have signed a new contract for Sao Paulo Grand Prix to continue until 2030. Excelente!

Watch a free Brazilian Grand Prix live stream

If you're out of the country you'll need to use a VPN to access your preferred Brazilian Grand Prix free live stream, as explained below. We rate ExpressVPN as the best provider out there, as it has a great track record for unblocking geo-restricted streams.

How to watch the Brazilian Grand Prix live stream from outside your country

If you're abroad for this weekend's Brazilian 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.
