Brazilian Grand Prix: How to watch F1 live on TV and online

The F1 season that promised much and delivered plenty of excitement in its first half is beginning to wind down as we reach the destination of Sao Paolo for the Brazilian Grand Prix.

Both the drivers and constructors championships were wrapped up a few races ago, with cost cap saga resolved a few weeks ago (at least for some) and most of the 2023 seats locked in, teams and drivers are racing for both pride and points as they seek to climb up the standings and end the season on a positive note.

Lewis Hamilton is running out of chances to get his first win of the season, and if he doesn’t win in 2022 it’ll be the first time he has not been on the top step in any season since he joined. Max Verstappen will be wanting to make sure of that as he bids to extend his record of the most races won in any season.

Ferrari and Mercedes are still tussling for second place, though it is advantage to the Prancing Horse and it’s still tight between Alpine and McLaren for fourth place. In fact teams are all still jostling for places, and in some cases a few points could be enough to change positions as we go into the final race.

The Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace track doesn’t serve up boring races too often, with wet weather expected across the weekend that could mix things up. To find out how to catch the action this weekend, here’s how to watch the Brazilian F1 Grand Prix on TV and online.
