How to stream the F1 Dutch GP 2022 live and free

And just like that, the unstoppable Max Verstappen secures his second consecutive Formula 1 champion title. Sure, the season has more races to come with the next one actually being Max’s home turf in the Netherlands. But regardless, the outcome of the season is crystal-clear. That, however, doesn’t mean that there’s not plenty of excitement to still be had. So, on to the Dutch GP!

The Belgian Grand Prix was certainly something!

If there’s one race to remember a driver by, for Verstappen the Spa-Francorchamps might very well be it. Swamped with grid penalties at the start of the race, Max drove like the devil himself with some of the most impressive overtaking in his entire career eventually taking a well-earned first place, closely followed by his team partner S. Pérez.

Leclerc, the underdog of the entire season, however, could only finish sixth. It’s clear that this won’t be the year that Ferrari pulls itself back together. But hey, what else is new, right? At least Sainz Jr. managed to place 3rd.

The Belgian GP was also one of the most accident-prone in 2022. Lewis Hamilton, who isn’t really known for making mistakes, had a very bad run-in with F. Alonso from Alpine on Lap 1. This took Lewis out of the race for the first in a very long time. Shortly after, Valtteri Bottas of Alfa Romeo spun out to avoid crashing into Nicholas Latifi from team Williams.

Next up is the Dutch GP on the 4th of September. Verstappen’s home turf. Can he keep the win streak going, or will home advantage make him slip up?! It’s about time to find out!

Where can you stream the 2022 Dutch GP?

If you have been following this season of Formula 1, you probably know all the streaming options by heart. We know we sure do.

In the US the rights to F1 streaming (2022 Dutch GP included) are, of course, with ESPN. And this pretty much means no streaming options other than the cable-cutters: Youtube TV, fuboTV, Sling TV, or Hulu.

Canada has a bit more options, but none of them are drastically better. There’s TSN, RDS and RDS 2, and Nuovo.

Australia’s only option to cheer on the race in Zandvoort is either Kayo or Fox. And the UK fans either have to take out a pricy Sky subscription or settle for the highlights on ITV.

The rest of the world doesn’t fare much better. In most cases, the subscription is held hostage by Viaplay, a streaming service owned by NENT (Nordic Entertainment Group), Sky, or Now in Europe, and whoever got their hands on the rights in the rest of the world.

In short: Not ideal.

No fan of any sport wants to take out a new streaming subscription every time they want to watch a race or a match. And neither do we. This is exactly why we found every way you can stream the entire 2022 Formula 1 season live and free. And all you need is one little skeleton key!

What do you need to watch Formula 1 for free?

The one thing that you need that will get you all the Formula 1 streaming you could ever want is a VPN.

Not torrenting, or one of those putlocker websites that get your device infected with malware. No cringy Reddit streams. Those are all things of the past. And why would you go for any of that, if you can enjoy the Dutch GP in glorious quality and with professional commentary?

However, sports streams are hard to crack. As much as you want in, they want to keep you out. This is why any regular old VPN just won’t cut it. What you need is a VPN that is synonymous with unblocking sports streaming platforms and live streams. And there’s but one that could pull that off: ExpressVPN!

But what makes ExpressVPN so good? Why do we keep pushing it as the best sports streaming solution, be it Formula 1, the Premier League, or even the NFL?! Well:

  • ExpressVPN has the most diverse, and most powerful server network out of any VPN provider.
    This means, that wherever the stream may be, it has a server nearby.
  • Not only does it has the toughest servers in the industry, but they’re also all optimized for streaming.
    This means ExpressVPN can unblock any streaming platform you might want to get your hands on.
  • Much like Leclerc’s management, speed is a VPN’s greatest Achilles heel. Not ExpressVPN, though!
    With some of the best speeds in the entire industry, ExpressVPN will let you stream whatever you want, wherever you want!
  • Finally, ExpressVPN comes with a 30-day money-back period, so there’s nothing stopping you from trying it out!
