The 2020 Formula 1 championship starts on July 3 with the Austrian Grand Prix. Here's how to watch Formula 1 streaming for free and on TV
After soccer, even Formula 1 tries to restart. From July 3, the circus of Formula 1 resumes its race that will take the teams to face 17 Grand Prix in less than six months. Almost every week there will be a race, except when it will be necessary to change continent. The Covid-19 has overturned the Formula 1 calendar: all the initial part with the GP of Australia, China, Bahrain, Montecarlo, Baku, France has been cancelled. It starts from the Austrian GP on the circuit of Spielberg, which for the occasion will host the first two GP: 3-5 July and 10-12 July.
It will be a very special sprint championship, but the favorite remains Mercedes. The winter tests carried out before the outbreak of the pandemic on the Montmeló circuit had shown a Mercedes in great form, a Red Bull in form and a Ferrari in great difficulty. Only time and the work done in the factory in this period will tell us if the Maranello Reds have been able to recover the gap seen this winter. Binotto, DT of Ferrari, announced important updates for the car, but they will come only from the Hungarian Grand Prix. Lewis Hamilton, therefore, is still the number one favorite to win the World Championship and will try to match the seven World Championships won by Michael Schumacher.
The TV rights of Formula 1 2020 have been acquired by Sky that will broadcast in exclusive all the first Grand Prix of this new season. Also renewed the agreement with TV8, the free Sky channel on digital terrestrial TV that will broadcast both the qualifying and the race. Il GP d’Italia 2020 di Formula 1, invece, sarà trasmesso in diretta anche su TV8. Ecco come vedere gratis la Formula 1 2020 sul TV e in diretta streaming.

Come vedere la Formula 1 2020 in TV
Per guardare la Formula 1 2020 in TV si hanno due possibilità: l’abbonamento a Sky, oppure vedere i gran premi in differita su TV8, canale gratuito del digitale terrestre.
As in previous years, Sky has deployed all its firepower to offer a top service to subscribers, while respecting all the rules of social distancing provided to stem the spread of Covid-19.

To follow Formula 1 on TV for free, however, there is TV8, which will broadcast all the grand prix in deferred, both qualifying and the race. Usually the appointment is at 18:00.
