Formula One racing is in Austin, Texas this weekend for the United States Grand Prix. This marks the return of F1 to the US for the first time since 2019 after last season’s race was canceled due to COVID-19.

The F1 race is scheduled to run on Sunday at 3 p.m. ET with qualifying running at 5 p.m. on Saturday. However, prior to that, there will be three practice runs you can watch as well. The first two practice runs are on Friday at 12:30 and 4 p.m. The third practice run is Saturday at 2 p.m.

The move to the United States for this weekend’s F1 race has F1 on several channels within the Disney/ESPN family. Friday’s practices will air on ESPN2 while Saturday’s practice and qualifying will air on ESPNews. Sunday’s race will air on ABC. All F1 events this weekend will be available via live stream at WatchESPN. You will need a cable log-in to stream the events, so if you don’t have one, you can get a trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the US Grand Prix weekend.

Lewis Hamilton comes into race week as the favorite to win at DraftKings Sportsbook. He’s installed at -135, followed by Max Verstappen at +135. Valtteri Bottas is the next closest at +1600. The three of them also lead odds to claim pole position at Saturday’s qualifying. Hamilton is installed as the -105 favorite, followed by Verstappen at +190 and Bottas at +380.
