How can I watch F1 live online?

ITV broadcast Grand Prix Friday practices, qualifying and the race live online. It’s only accessible to British viewers (although some people have apparently found ways around that).

TVlizer carries some sports channels live, including Eurosport France which carries some F1 sessions.

The ‘Wheels’ channel on TVU may be showing the session live. You will need to download the TVU player to view it.

There’s usually discussion about where to find F1 online in the comments so do check in to see what other people are using.

Live timing

You can follow live timing at the official Formula 1 site, which requires free registration.

Join in F1 Comments Live

You can launch F1 Comments Live in a new window – this should make it easier for you to fit around other open windows e.g. the live timing screen: launch F1 Comments Live in a new window

Or you can launch F1 Comments Live in your browser window.

Please only use the comments form below to report any technical problems. I’ve tried having everyone post their comments in there during the F1 sessions and it just makes the site crash!

    1. am having trouble connecting to the live blog, worked ok yesterday, just get a blank page in ie and get the postings in ffox, but the text entry field is missing

    2. Thanks Del – glad to see you managed to get in.

    3. Hello Keith – same as del – blank space in ie? – off for coffee while hamilton fan club on

    4. Which version of IE? Have you got Javascript allowed?

    5. Same problem here Keith.  The embedded app worked fine on vee8 but I got a white page when I tried to launch from here.

      Xp/IE7/Everything enabled/Plugins present and correct.

    6. OK sorry about that mate – I will have an embedded version here next week but need to tweak the design a bit to accommodate it. Did the launch in browser window version not work either?

    7. I am afraid not.

      I have tested in SeaMonkey 1.14, FireFox 2.0.0 and Safari 3.0.4 and all work ok.

    8. Cracked it.  You haven’t closed the title tag in the document head.  IE7 is ridiculously strict about things like that.
