The Japanese Grand Prix is the next race on the F1 calendar, and it will bring a slightly difficult viewing experience for American fans. The race weekend is taking place at Suzuka Circuit in Japan, 50 miles southwest of Nagoya. It takes place in Japan Standard Time, which is 13 hours ahead of Eastern Time.
The weekend’s events will take place in the early afternoon in Japan, which makes for overnight in the United states. The first two practice runs are on Thursday night at 11 p.m. ET and Friday morning at 2 a.m. ET. The third practice is Friday night at 11 p.m.
The first and third practices will air on ESPNEWS and the second practice will air on ESPN2. Both will also 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 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix weekend.
Max Verstappen is the favorite to win heading into the first practice with -190 odds at DraftKings Sportsbook. Charles Leclerc is second with +380 odds.
