Max Verstappen isn’t so much rewriting the record books as ripping them up completely and starting them from scratch. His astonishing 2023 season continues at Interlagos as the F1 circus heads to South America for the Brazilian G.P.
It’s the 2023 season’s sixth and final sprint weekend, so Friday’s qualifying session will determine Sunday’s grid positions. It starts at 2 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. GMT, following something of a dud sole practice session that saw a Ferrari one-two with most teams deciding not to go all out on soft tyres.
This is how to watch the F1 Sao Paulo Grand Prix in Brazil on November 3-5 from anywhere – including ways to get a free 2023 F1 Sao Paulo Grand Prix in Brazil live stream. We’ve also listed the F1 Sao Paulo Grand Prix in Brazil start times below.
In Mexico City last weekend, Verstappen topped the podium for the 16th time this season and, in doing so, bettered his own record set last season. That equalled Alain Prost’s tally of 51 victories and took him two off Sebastian Vettel’s 53, leaving only bona fide legends of the sport Michael Schumacher (91) and Lewis Hamilton (103) ahead of him.
Speaking of previous champion Hamilton, he will try to carry over his momentum from his second-place finish on Sunday into the Interlagos Circuit in São Paulo. Now that he’s only 20 points behind Sergio Perez, he has a genuine chance to save Mercedes’ season by stopping Red Bull’s seemingly unavoidable one-two.
It’s probably too late for the likes of Carlos Sainz, Fernando Alonso, Lando Norris or Charles Leclerc to realistically trouble the top two rankings, but Sir Lewis’s teammate and fellow Brit George Russell would at least dearly love to repeat his Brazilian G.P. win from last season.
You’ll find full timings for the weekend at the bottom of this page. The race set to start at 12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT / 5 p.m. GMT / 4 a.m. AEDT (Monday) on Sunday, Nov. 5.

How to watch the 2023 F1 Brazilian Grand Prix live stream for FREE
Formula 1 fans in in Austria and Luxembourg are among the luckiest in the world, as they get to watch Brazil Grand Prix live streams for FREE.
Both countries show F1 live streams on free-to-air TV. It’s RTL Zwee in Luxembourg, while in Austria, ORF and ServusTV are sharing the coverage — this weekend’s Brazilian G.P. is on ServusTV.

As well as being available through your cable service, you can stream the race via the ESPN app, or on the Watch section of ESPN’s website. However, you’ll need to authenticate with your satellite, cable or live TV provider credentials to watch any sessions.
ESPN is also available through most cable TV replacement services, including Sling TV, Fubo, YouTube TV and Hulu with Live TV.
Or if all you’re interested in is the F1 and you really don’t want to pay extra for TV channels you won’t watch, then you can also opt for F1 TV Pro. F1’s own official live stream service is yours for just $9.99/month or $79.99 for the whole season
F1 TV Pro is available to watch via smartphone app, web browser, Roku, Apple TV, Google TV and Fire TV. And, in addition to Formula 1, you also get access to F2, F3 and Porsche Supercup live streams, together with exclusive F1 shows, archive and documentaries.

How to watch 2023 F1 Brazilian Grand Prix live stream in the U.K.
Sky Sports has long been the home of Formula 1, with its dedicated F1 channel hosting all the weekend’s action. Fans in the U.K. only have their home GP available to watch for free on Channel 4.

Assuming you have the necessary Sky box and television, all the F1 action is available to watch in ultra high-definition 4K. And you can watch on the go, to, with its Sky Go app for smartphones, tablets and a selection of streaming devices.
If you don’t wish to shell out for a full Sky package, then you could always go for a Now Sports Pass , which features the full suite of Sky Sports channels and is available for £34.99/month or £11.98/day. Just don’t expect 4K coverage, as it’s not available on Now, and you have to pay extra for HD, too.
