If you love the race track, you may want to know how to watch F1 races in the US online for free to see who wins this year’s world championship.
The FIA Formula One World Championship started in 1960 as a motor racing championship for Formula One cars, open-wheel, single-seater formula racing cars sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA). (The word “formula” refers to the set of rules each racing car must follow.) Each Formula One season consists of a series of races, known as Grands Prix, which are held across the world on both race circuits and closed public roads.
In an interview with Robb Report in 2022, Formula One Group Stefano Domenicali explained how Formula One races have started attracting younger fans over recent years. “That is something we are already seeing, especially with our approach through social media and e-gaming. The Netflix series Drive To Survive has captured [interest] with a huge new—and younger—audience,” he said. He continued, “We are already seeing changes that weren’t expected in the short term, such as younger fans at the Grand Prix. To cater for this new type of audience, F1 wants to make the weekends a more attractive spectacle, with music events and a more festival-like atmosphere.”
He also explained the similarities between running Formula One as a brand and running a Formula One team. “Both are hard, for sure. The magnitude of this business is challenging and the responsibility is big. I don’t want to say this job is difficult, but it is complex,” he said. “There are a lot of variables to be taken into consideration, especially making decisions from both a tactical and strategic position. There is much to manage, including the interests of the fans, the teams and the shareholders. The opportunity we have next year to link everything together is a big chance to grow the sport.”

After the free trial ends, Express VPN costs $8.32 per month for a 12-month plan ($99.95 in total), $9.99 per month for a six-month plan ($59.95 in total) or $12.95 per month for a monthly plan.
