Singapore F1 Grand Prix: Where To Watch (If You Don’t Have Tickets)

The Singapore grand prix was one of the most eventful races in ages, and it’s turned the F1 title race on its head. Lewis Hamilton entered the weekend with a marginal three point lead, and expected to be on the backfoot - and on the Saturday that proved to be correct. Both Ferraris were flying, and after a qualifying session that saw Sebastian Vettel on pole and Hamilton back in 5th, it was almost certainly going to be damage limitation for the British driver.

However, what followed was one of the most unpredictable, shocking starts in modern F1. Vettel aggressively squeezed Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, forcing him into his Ferrari teammate, Kimi Raikkonen. Just a split second later, Verstappen had clipped Raikkonen, turning him into Vettel and destroying both Ferraris in the process. Vettel’s second moment of madness this season means Hamilton now leads the championship by 28 points – 3 more than a race win – and Ferrari will now need to claw points back in Malaysia next time out.

Watch F1 online and on TV

1. Sky F1: The ultimate way to watch the Malaysian GP – and now in 4K

For the past few years, Sky has had the rights to every practice session, qualifying a session and race of the F1 season – and it’s still the best place to watch the Malaysian GP, as well as the rest of the championship in 2017.

There’s great commentary – mainly from Martin Brundle – and if you’re a hardcore fan who wants to see every minute of track time, we recommend you get Sky with the Sky F1 channel. In 2017, Sky is also broadcasting everything in 4K for an extra fee, and when you throw in its already comprehensive coverage, it’s the ultimate place to watch F1 in the UK. To get Sky F1, here’s what you’ll need:

· £49.50 monthly cost· £49.50 monthly cost
· £15 one-off setup cost· £199 one-off setup cost

If you want regular HD, expect to pay around £50 a month – but for the same content in 4K – plus other 4K Sky content, too, expect to pay close to £80. Get Sky F1 here.

2. Now TV: Stream the Malaysian GP online with this Pay as You Go service

If you want to watch F1 2017 live, but want to pick and choose the races you stream, Now TV is the package for you. If you want to watch a single race, you’ll need to buy a Sky Sports Day Pass for £6.99, but if you want to watch practise sessions, qualifying and the race, you’ll need a week pass – and that’ll set you back £10.99. It’s not great value compared to Sky if you’re a hardcore fan, but if you only want to watch certain races, and you aren’t up for watching races live at strange times – it’s worth checking out. Get NowTV for F1 here.

If you don't want to stream the F1, you can keep up with the news from the event on the Sky Sports website, app as well as the live blog which covers highlights and practice sessions. 

3. Channel 4: Watch the Malaysian GP FOR FREE

If you want to watch F1 for free in the UK, Channel 4 is your only real option – and even then it’s pretty limited. Channel 4 doesn’t have the rights to show all F1 2017 races live, but it does show ten of them, including most of the practice and qualifying sessions. 

Below you'll find all the races Channel 4 is broadcasting live (which includes next weekend's Malaysian GP). If you want to watch races not on the below list, you'll have to settle for highlights or another of the methods on this list.
