British Grand Prix 2019: The F1 2019 schedule reaches its 10th race of the season Sunday, the British Grand Prix in Northamptonshire, England. ESPN2 returns as the TV channel that will broadcast this weekend’s Formula 1 race, with a start time of 9:05 a.m. ET on Sunday. The British Grand Prix also can be live streamed via the ESPN app.
The British Grand Prix in 2019 returns to the iconic Silverstone Circuit (where it will stay for the next five years). The 18-turn, 5.891-kilometer course hosted the first ever Formula 1 World Championship round back in 1950 and remains one of the fastest tracks on the F1 schedule. Sunday’s British Grand Prix is scheduled for 52 laps and a total distance of 306.198 kilometers. This will be the 70th British Grand Prix, making it the race with the most appearances in F1 history over the Italian Grand Prix (69)
Ferrari – and Sebastian Vettel in particular – is desperate to break through with the team’s first win of the 2019 F1 season, especially after Red Bull’s Max Verstappen became the first non-Mercedes driver to win a race this year with his victory in Austria two weeks ago. Vettel, who is battling through the longest winless streak of his F1 career, won the British Grand Prix last year.
Even so, Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton, the leader in F1 points standings, will be the favorite to win the 2019 British Grand Prix. Vettel’s win last year broke Hamilton’s record streak of four consecutive victories at Silverstone. Hamilton is looking for his sixth career British Grand Prix win, which would be a new record for this race.
Hamilton is coming off a season-worst fifth place finish in Austria, but he has not missed out on a podium in back-to-back races since 2017.Below is all you need to know about the 2019 British Grand Prix, including how to watch and live stream the race.F1 TV schedule, live stream for British Grand Prix
