This is how to watch the F1 Japan Grand Prix on April 5-7 from anywhere – including ways to get a free 2024 Japan Grand Prix live stream. We’ve also listed the Japan Grand Prix start times below.

Ferrari’s victory, through Carlos Sainz, at the Australian Grand Prix a fortnight ago will have given the F1 field hope that Red Bull can be beaten.

Red Bull secured a 1-2 finish in each of the first two grands prix of the year, with reigning champ Max Verstappen winning both.

But a rare DNF for Verstappen in Australia is a reminder that, for all of Red Bull’s strengths, it is not perfect.

Mercedes, meanwhile, battle on with Lewis Hamilton and George Russell hoping their season can come alive in Japan.
