What channel is British Grand Prix on today? F1 TV schedule, start time for 2024 race – Sporting News

For a third weekend in a row we’ve got a Formula One race to look forward to, and as the 12th meeting on the 2024 calendar gets underway in just a few hours’ time, we’ve got all the TV and streaming details you’ll need ahead of the British Grand Prix.
We’ll soon be three races into a run of seven in a row taking place across Europe, and if last weekend’s Austrian Grand Prix is anything to go by, we’re all set for another 52 laps of high-octane driving and even higher levels of drama— after defending champion Max Verstappen knocked himself out of contention to win his home race having looked set for yet another victory.
With just a handful of laps left to run, Verstappen and current runner-up Lando Norris came to blows on the penultimate corner of the Red Bull Ring, ruling Norris out of the race altogether and seeing the Dutchman drop to fifth as Mercedes’ George Russell ran clear to record his first victory of the season in bizarre circumstances.

The Brit’s surprise win is the best possible opening to the 79th edition of the British Grand Prix, with Russell, Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton, and a returning Norris all set to have the home crowd’s support behind them as they bid to chase down Verstappen’s healthy lead at the top of the World Drivers’ Championship.
The Sporting News remains your guide to all things F1 in 2024, and ahead of today’s British Grand Prix, we’ve got all the TV and live streaming details you’ll need to keep pace with the action at Silverstone.

Today’s race at the British Grand Prix takes place from 3:00 p.m. local time (BST) at the Silverstone Circuit in Northamptonshire, England, and here’s how that start time translates across some of the major territories:
The next meeting on the calendar will mark the halfway point of this summer’s flux of European races, as the 20 drivers head to Mogyorod and the Hungaroring for the Hungarian Grand Prix. After back-to-back-to-back races in Spain, Austria and Britain, there’s a two week break before the next Grand Prix in Hungary, which will take place on Sunday, July 21.
Elite motorsport racing has been held in Hungary since all the way back in 1936, but this will only be the 40th edition of a Formula 1 Grand Prix being held in the Eastern European country. That 1936 race stood alone for 50 years, with Hungary returning to the F1 calendar in 1986 and being held at the Hungaroring ever since.
The action in Hungary this year begins with the first free practice on Friday, July 19, with the three qualifying sessions taking place the following day leading into raceday on Sunday, July 21. Lights out are at 3:00 p.m. local time (CEST) at the Hungaroring, with Verstappen on the hunt for a third successive win in a row at this circuit.
