F1 live stream
This weekend’s 2023 Australian GP will be live and FREE on 10Play in Australia. Use a VPN (opens in a new tab) to unlock 10Play when you travel outside Oz. As always, every 2023 F1 race can be watched for free on RTL Zwee in Luxembourg, RTBF in Belgium and Servus or ORF in Austria. Below is a full breakdown of free F1 live streams.
F1 season preview
The F1 circus arrived at Albert Park, Melbourne, for the 2023 Australian Grand Prix. Fernando Alonso was quickest in a rain-affected FP2, ahead of Charles Leclerc and Max Verstappen. FP3 and qualifying are next.
Last time out, Sergio Perez led the race of his life by winning the Saudi Arabian GP, while teammate Max Verstappen fought his way from 15th to 2nd. Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso was reinstated in third place after a post-race penalty was overturned.
The 2023 F1 season is preparing well. If Frederic Vasseur can pull the right levers at Ferrari, he could still have two title contenders in Leclerc and Carlos Sainz. Last season was Lewis Hamilton’s first winless victory in F1, and he will be desperate to prove it was a one-off, especially as George Russell is clearly a man on the rise.
Gasly and Esteban Ocon form Alpine’s first all-French lineup in more than 40 years (just in time for the French GP to be dropped from the calendar), but how long before tensions arise? Nico Hulkenberg is back on pace at Haas, which could give teammate Kevin Magnussen something to aspire to.
Another theme could be the wonderful newcomers. McLaren’s Piastri clearly has a terrible car under him, but having won both the F3 and F2 championships at his first attempt, he’s one to watch. AlphaTauri’s new driver, 28-year-old Nyck de Vries, drives confidently, as does Williams’ Logan Sargeant, the first American on the grid in seven years.
With a total of 23 races, including six Sprints, scheduled in 20 different countries, follow our guide as we explain how to get an F1 2023 live stream from anywhere.

2023 F1 Sprint races
Six Sprint races will be held during the 2023 F1 season, at the Grands Prix of Azerbaijan, Austria, Belgium, Qatar, the United States and Sao Paulo.
That’s double the number of Sprints that took place during each of the previous two seasons, despite the judging still out of the format.
The Baku City Circuit, Spa-Francorchamps, Lusail Circuit and Circuit of The Americas have never previously hosted a Sprint and the FIA says they, along with the Red Bull Ring and Interlagos, have been selected for their potential for overtaking opportunities and closing or racing at high speed.
The top eight finishers score points, with the winner getting eight points and P8 earning one, and the finishing order of the sprint race determines the grid for the Grand Prix.
2023 F1 car modifications
Untold hours were spent debating last season’s porpoise and the FIA moved to combat the problem in 2023 by allowing manufacturers to raise the floor edges of their cars by 15mm and the height of the diffuser throat by an even -unspecified amount.
Due to the shocking crash suffered by Zhou Guanyu at Silverstone in 2022, changes have also been made to the design of the roll hoops, the cylindrical structure in the upper part of the frame that sits behind the rider’s head.
They now need to be rounded at the top, to prevent them from digging into the ground in the event of a car flipping over, which is exactly what happened in Guanyu last year. After colliding with another car, his Alfa-Romeo flipped over, skidded at high speed towards the barriers, before the roll hoop dug into the ground and flipped the car once more, launching it over the barriers and into the fence just inside in front of the spectators.
The dimensions of the side mirrors of the cars were also significantly enlarged from 150 × 50 mm to 200 × 60 mm.
