How to stream the F1 Italian GP 2022 live and free

Now that not even the orange flairs on the track could stop Max Verstappen, there is no question over who should be this year’s Formula 1 champion. Be that as it may, the season is far from over and we are riding high into the third weekend race in a row – the Italian GP!

While the champion of the 2022 Formula 1 season might be as clear as last week, the season is far from over and there’s much more excitement to be had. After all, there are still plenty of other competitors in Verstappen’s dust.

L. Hamilton and team Mercedes seem to be back in action. A bit late in the game, but it was a joy to revisit the epic battle between Hamilton and Verstappen that kept us on the edge of our seats last year. G. Russel also proved to be a formidable opponent for team Red Bull. So we’re very curious to see what Mercedes will do next.

Then, of course, there’s Leclerc who seems to be fighting his own management as much as his opponents on the track. Finishing the Dutch GP third, we can’t help but root for the relentless Moroccan.

Anyway, to anyone who says F1 2022 is done, we say there’s plenty more excitement to be seen and had. And with the added weather warnings, we’re more than hyped to see what the Italian GP brings us on September 11th.

Stream the Italian GP live and free with ExpressVPN!

Can you stream the 2022 Italian GP for free?

Well, not through any of your regular means, we take it…

Depending on where you live, the rights to broadcasting the Formula 1 races probably belong to either a cable channel or a sports streaming platform that is more than happy to block the stream behind a paywall and jack up the prices.

It might be ESPN in the US, Sky Sports in the UK, Kayo in Australia, TSN and RDS in Canada, or Viaplay in half of Europe, but in most of the world, the streaming rights to Formula 1 are probably held hostage by a premium subscription of some sort.

In most of the world… but not all of it.

If you have been following us for a while, you probably know that no matter the sport, there is probably at least one place in the world that is broadcasting it for free. And this, of course, goes for the Italian GP as well.
