How to watch F1 live on TV and online
Four races and two wins each for Leclerc and Verstappen as they emerge as the two contenders for the 2022 Formula 1 Drivers’ World Championship.
And the fight will continue on round five where F1 will find itself on a new circuit. For the first time, the F1 circus will meet in Miami on a temporary new track around the Miami Dolphins NFL Stadium. F1 is hoping Miami’s glitz, glamor and exoticism will dissipate as it seeks a home in the US market.
But we’re here for the racing first and foremost, and while Ferrari and Red Bull are expected to battle for victory, Mercedes are reportedly making improvements that could boost their disappointing season so far. They certainly hope to have reduced the problems with their porpoising car. Otherwise, the season could be long.
This weekend also marks the first round of the all-women W Series as Jamie Chadwick and Alice Powell return to the track, the former looking to claim her third W Series championship.
