Formula One racing is in Mexico City this weekend for the Mexican Grand Prix. The F1 race is scheduled to run on Sunday at 2 p.m. ET with qualifying running at 4 p.m. on Saturday. The circuit returns after last year’s race was canceled due to COVID-19. The event had been held the previous five years.

Prior to qualifying, there will be three practice runs you can enjoy on TV and via live stream. The first two practice runs are on Friday at 1:30 and 5 p.m. The third practice run is Saturday at 1 p.m. Friday’s practices will air on ESPN2 while Saturday’s practice and qualifying will air on ESPNews. Sunday’s race will air on ABC.

All F1 events this weekend will be available via live stream at WatchESPN. You will need a cable log-in to stream the events, so if you don’t have one, you can get a trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the Mexican Grand Prix weekend.
