The 2023 Australian Grand Prix gets underway overnight in Melbourne on Sunday. Max Verstappen and George Russell will get the race started from the front row when the green flag drops at 1 a.m. ET. Melbourne is 15 hours later, which puts the race start at 4 p.m. local time.

The race will air on ESPN. If you are not in front of a TV, you can view the race via live online stream at WatchESPN and through the ESPN app. You will need a cable log-in to stream the race, so if you don’t have one, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream it.
