Formula 1 is back in 2020.

How to watch Formula 1 live in the US

In terms of your viewing options, the rights to broadcast Formula 1 live in the United States are held by ESPN and on free-to-air television through ABC, which only has limited access. You can also get live race-day coverage through Formula 1’s own streaming service, F1 TV Pro.

Watch F1 on ABC

You can get access to a very limited amount of Formula 1 content through free-to-air TV on ABC. In a normal season, the US, Mexico and Canadian grands prix are live on ABC. There is also delayed coverage of Monaco. There is zero practice or qualifying available. In 2020, at the time of writing none of those races is on the current schedule so you will need to consider a subscription service to catch the breathtaking speed of F1 racing.

Stream F1 live on F1 TV Pro

Following the coronavirus pandemic, there are now 13 races scheduled for 2020. More may still be added later in the season. With F1 TV Pro in the US, you get all the F1 action you could ask for, plus F2, F3 and Porsche Supercup replays. There is also a major race archive and plenty of live stats to enhance your viewing experience.
