British Grand Prix live stream F1: how to watch today’s race online free from anywhere

If the World Cup keeps teaching us anything, it's that you can't really predict anything in sport. But today's British Grand Prix may be as close to a sure thing as anything. The world champion Lewis Hamilton is on pole position at his home GP having won the last previous British Grand Prix. And with this guide, you can stream F1 live absolutely free and from anywhere in the world.

 Just when you thought the F1 Drivers' World Championship might be Sebastian Vettel's to lose, along comes the British Grand Prix and a renewed sense of hope for Hamilton. After a crushingly disappointing Austrian GP last weekend, he'll be desperate to make it five in a row st Silverstone to try to return to the top of the standings in his ding-dong battle with Vettel - and starting from the front of the grid certainly won't hurt.

The German driver, on the other hand, will be attempting to record his first Grand Prix victory on British soil (or should that be tarmac?) for almost a decade. His only win at Silverstone came during is breakout season in 2009.

Watching the British Grand Prix from the comfort of your own TV is thankfully really straightforward, and on pretty much any device. And the best thing about it...you can do so absolutely free of charge, regardless of where on earth you are! Read on to find out how to stream F1 live.

More from TechRadar on F1 motor racing

In preparation for the 2018 British Grand Prix, TechRadar has been hanging out with a couple of the teams to see how technology is constantly helping them improve and move up the F1 Constructors' World Championship.

First at Silverstone, we spoke to cloud data management company Rubrik, which is working with Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes set-up to make sure that the vital data that makes its drivers the most competitive doesn't fall into the hands of other teams.

And then we heard from Dell Technologies about its collaboration with one of F1's most famous teams, McLaren, where it has become more and more clear that IT systems need to be as finely tuned as the cars to get the fastest speeds.
