F1 Austrian GP 2022 live free: As we head to the 2022 Austrian Grand Prix, things are looking a little more open – and F1 Sprint promises to shake things up even more. After a crash yesterday, Hamilton will be starting from 10th for F1 Sprint, while Verstappen and an in-form Leclerc occupy front row. Here’s our full guide on how to watch an Austrian Grand Prix live stream online from anywhere.
Mercedes are finally finding their form. They’re evidently still behind Red Bull and Ferrari but masterful, hard-charging driving like that which Sir Lewis displayed last week can certainly make up the deficit.
Ferrari, on the other hand, are still falling foul to dubious strategic decisions – with Leclerc seemingly always on the receiving end. Carlos Sainz will be buoyed by his first-ever win last week, and that could stand the Spaniard in good stead in Austria.
The Austrian Grand Prix marks the start of a lengthy mid-season run of races in mainland Europe. Success here will be crucial for any driver’s championship bid – plus we’ll be seeing the second F1 Sprint of the season on Saturday. Purists beware…
Here’s how to watch an Austrian Grand Prix live stream from start to finish and from anywhere in the world, including ways to watch for FREE.

How to watch the F1 Austrian GP 2022 live Free stream from outside your country
If you’re abroad for this weekend’s Austrian 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.
Austrian Grand Prix live stream: watch on F1 TV
If you’re an F1 devotee, then you likely already know about F1 TV – it’s the streaming service to subscribe to for all the best live action, highlights, replays of classics races and a whole lot more besides – you can sign up on its website.
Most people will want to go for F1 TV Pro, which is the way to live stream every F1 Grand Prix in full – along with F2, F3 and Porsche Supercup as well. Prices differ from country-to-country – it’s $79.99 in the US, for example – and some even let you give it a try with a free 7-day trial!
Just note that not all regions have an F1 TV package with live Grand Prix coverage, with the UK and Australia being notable exceptions. But that still leaves people in the US, Canada, France, the Netherlands, Brazil and loads, loads more all included.
