The Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix is just around the corner. If you’re a Formula 1 fan, you’ve been following the last few days’ practice sessions on the official F1 live stream. The drivers are all warmed up now and in control of the twists and turns of the Bahrain International Circuit. Now it’s time to see how well this exercise has paid off.
The Bahrain International Circuit has hosted Formula 1 racing since 2004 and was the first circuit in the Middle East to host the Formula 1 Grand Prix. It’s known for large run-off areas that give drivers some leeway when it comes to staying behind and it’s a double start for Red Bull with Verstappen and Perez at the helm.
What channel is the Bahrain Grand Prix on?
The Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix will air Sunday, March 5 at 10:00 am ET on ESPN2. The pre-show begins at 8:30 a.m. ET. ESPN is the only channel showing the US Grand Prix, but there are a few ways you can access it. If you have cable, just switch to ESPN on your TV and start watching.
You can also log into the ESPN app on a computer or smartphone using your cable subscription username and password. Not that this is any different than ESPN+. The Grand Prix will also be shown on ESPN+. So if you also have this subscription or the Disney Bundle, you can always log into the app on your TV. The Grand Prix will also be shown in Spanish on ESPN Deportes.
Watch Bahrain Grand Prix live stream online
If you’ve canceled your cable subscription, there are still ways to stream the races online, including a way to live stream the Bahrain Grand Prix for free. This is FuboTV offering new customers a one-week free trial with no strings attached. Since it will have all the races of the 74th Formula One World Championship, it’s probably worth keeping after that.
The race is now broadcast free of charge in Austria and Luxembourg, via ORF in Austria and RTL Zwee in Luxembourg. This is fantastic news for those in the countries, but devastating for residents traveling abroad who want to watch events live in their local language – especially when it’s free to watch at home.
It’s only fitting that an Austrian currently residing in the United States would want to watch the race in Austrian rather than English, right? This is perfectly safe (and legal) with a VPN. All they have to do is download and install one on their device, set their location to either Austria or Luxembourg depending on where they are from, and then go to the relevant website above.
