F1 Canadian GP: How to watch on TV in the US on ABC & ESPN

The 2023 Formula 1 World Championship continues this Sunday with the Canadian Grand Prix and here’s how you can watch the action on ABC and ESPN in the United States.

A tribute to Gilles Villeneuve on the grid

When is the 2023 Canadian Grand Prix?

This year’s race takes place on Sunday 18 June at 2:00pm ET at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal.

There are two free practice sessions on Friday, and one on Saturday before qualifying at 4:00pm.

What happened in last year’s Canadian Grand Prix?

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen won the race from pole position, after a battle with Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz, who was just under a second behind him at the finish. The Mercedes of Lewis Hamilton finished third.

Alpine’s Fernando Alonso started from the front row after a rain-affected qualifying, but he fell back with an engine problem – and was then hit by a time penalty for weaving on the straight, dropping him to ninth.

Which channel shows F1 on TV in the USA?

All Formula 1 races will be shown live on U.S. TV by either ESPN, ESPN2 or ABC this year, as well as being streamed live or on-demand via its digital platform.

To make sure you don’t miss any of the action across practice, qualifying or racing – which will vary across its channels during the season – here’s how to tune in this weekend.

Fans will also be able to catch Red Bull reserve driver Daniel Ricciardo co-host an ‘alternate telecast’ of the race on ESPN2. The Grandstand with Daniel Ricciardo and Will Arnett will run in parallel with the regular live coverage on ABC.
