Will Hamilton Get His Revenge? Catch the German Grand Prix Live Online

Sebastian Vettel clinched his a 51st career victory yesterday in the British Grand Prix, extending his championship lead to eight points. But the affair did not pass without controversy: British racer Lewis Hamilton is accusing Kimi Raikkonen, the German’s team-mate, of deliberately colliding with him in the opening lap. Hamilton had to start again from dead last and made an impressive recovery finishing in second place

Following the race, an angry Hamilton made reference to an incident from last month’s French Grand Prix where Vettel hit fellow racer Valtteri Bottas. Hamilton noted that “It’s two races in which a Mercedes has been taken out by a Ferrari. Valtteri and I have both lost out in those scenarios.”

Raikkonen naturally denied the accusation. Regardless of who’s right, these shenanigans are pushing the rivalry to new heights, as the next round will take place on Vettel’s home soil, Germany. What better place for Hamilton to get his revenge.

The Twist

If you happen to be traveling during the race, fear not, your subscription will not go to waste. By simply installing and using a VPN, you will be able to access your broadcaster just as if you were still at home.

A VPN is a service that uses remote servers to reroute your traffic and bestow it with a local IP, making it seem as if you are in the country where the server is located. Using the UK example:

  1. Download and install a VPN
  2. Connect to a UK router
  3. Visit Sky Sports streaming channel and you’re good to go

There are many VPN providers out there, but our personal choice is ExpressVPN. Out of all the VPNs that we tested – and we’ve tested the best ones out there – ExpressVPN stood out for its speed. The last thing you want while watching the cars whiz by is a laggy connection.

The best part is that ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money back guarantee trial period, meaning that if you don’t like it, you lose nothing.

And as we mentioned, there are other great VPN service providers out there; check out our list of the best 5 according to our reviewers.
