The plot thickens! A fortnight ago, we wondered whether Lewis Hamilton would be able to get his revenge on Sebastian Vettel in the German Grand Prix. The story took a twist fit for a Hollywood blockbuster. Here’s some background.
Vettel won the British Grand Prix, Hamilton’s home court so to speak, extending his lead to 8 points at the time. But the race was marred by a controversy: British racer Lewis Hamilton had accused Vettel’s team-mate of deliberately colliding with him in the opening lap, which led to Hamilton restarting the race from the last position.
Yesterday’s race took place on Vettel’s home circuit in Germany, setting up the perfect ground for Hamilton’s comeback. And come back he did: Hamilton started 14th on the grid after a catastrophic qualifying round on Saturday yet still managed to come out the victor. To add insult to injury, Vettel crashed out of the race after hitting a barrier with 15 laps left to go.
Up Next: The Hungarian Grand Prix
Hamilton will now enter the upcoming Hungarian Grand Prix on Sunday, July 29, with a 17 point lead over Vettel. The unmissable race will be streamed online on a number of channels and platforms, including
- Channel 4 and Sky Sports in the UK
- ESPN Play and Univision Deportes for Spanish speakers in the US
- TSN GO in Canada
- RTL in Germany
- BeIN Sports in the Middle East
- And SuperSport in South Africa
All the channels listed above are licensed to stream the race in their respective regions, meaning that they can’t be accessed from anywhere in the world, even for subscribers. That leaves a small group of unlucky people who might be traveling at the time of the event. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Using a VPN, you will be able to access your local channel from anywhere in the world, and the process is really simple.
A VPN is an online service that gives its users access to a number of servers around the world. By routing your data through a specific server, your traffic will appear as if it were coming from the country in which the server is located. Allow me to illustrate. Let’s say you are a UK resident that happens to be traveling.
- Download and install a VPN
- Connect to a UK based server
- Geo restrictions go bye bye
- Log on to Channel 4 and Sky Sports and enjoy the race
It’s that simple
Which VPN Should I Use?
Now, this is a slightly harder question. There are many good VPNs out there, but if you want our advice, try ExpressVPN. It is fast (you don’t want any stuttering in your stream do you), highly secure with military-grade encryption, and offers a money back guarantee trial period, meaning that if you’re unsatisfied with the service, you can just walk away without losing anything.
As we said, good options are aplenty. If you’re curious about other providers, be sure to check out our list of favorite VPN providers. Each of those has been thoroughly reviewed by our in-house experts.
