Where to watch the 2023 F1 Azerbaijan GP on TV and streaming

The 2023 Formula 1 season continues with the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in Baku


The 2023 Azerbaijan GP marks the end of F1’s early season break, with teams and drivers heading to Baku after three weeks off, so make sure you know where to watch the race live from the Baku City Circuit on TV and online via streaming.

Red Bull will be aiming to keep their 100 percent winning record in tact after victories in the opening three F1 2023 races, as a title battle between Max Verstappen and Checo Perez threatens to bubble up. 

Aston Martin and Fernando Alonso have been the main challengers to Red Bull’s dominance thus far in F1 2023, but a resurgent Mercedes could see themselves in with a shout of a podium finish in Baku. 

However the main talking point in Baku is the introduction of the new F1 Sprint format which will see a qualifying session – sprint shootout – for the sprint race held on Saturday before the sprint race itself.
