The Brazilian Grand Prix is the second to last race in the Formula One racing season. Though it is newer than some of the other races, this race has been on the schedule consistently since it’s opening. The location of this race has stayed constant, and is run at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace in São Paulo, Brazil. This year, the race will be held on the 13th of November at 14:00 local time (BST-4). As always, there are many choices in watching the race. If you are in the US, the race will be covered online at NBCSN beginning at 10:30 EST, providing you have access. If you are not in the US or do not have access to a good option, you could use a VPN.

If you follow Formula One racing, you are well aware of the two Mercedes teammates, Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton. Both of these gentlemen are at the top of their racing form, and really have been all year. Surprisingly, Rosberg’s win over Hamilton last year in this race, broke Hamilton’s streak of consecutive race wins. That said, the race was only the 5th victory for Rosberg, vs the 10 for Hamilton in the 2015 season.
With the strength of these two competitors, it is not a surprise that Mercedes is setting records for first and second place finishes this year. Victories have mostly been given to one of these two competitors all year. In the season this year, only two other races have been won by other drivers. Because they are teammates and their car set-ups are similar, it is truly exciting to watch Hamilton and Rosberg go head to head. For many, this scenario invokes the spirit of the IROC. The IROC is a race where drivers all have the same cars, so it highlights their driving skills, instead of the amount of money a team has.
It is clear, at least with results of these last three years, that Hamilton is usually the better driver. Both drivers are known to race with precision. However, Rosberg seems to lack the one thing that separates the two, heart. Whereas Rosberg drives with all the precision of a finely tuned, German vehicle, Hamilton adds emotion in to the mix. Though it is possible that it is a coincidence, at least one of his second place finishes came after some event happened in his life.
As we mentioned, there are a few channels that you may watch the race on. Let’s take a look at them:
|Croatia||MAXtv To Go||Yes||Croatian|
|Japan||Fuji TV Next||Yes||Japanese|
|Spain||Antena 3 / Esport 3||Yes||Spanish|
|United Kingdom||Channel 4||No||English|

If you already have access to one of the channels above then you’re all set. Just remember to use a VPN if you plan to be outside the country on the day of the race. The Sky Sports is our favorite one to watch Formula 1 races, because they include wonderful features and coverage all weekend. They will actually be televising the race live, but you may also go to the Sky Sports website to watch online, if you have access. They certainly know their racing, and they are taking over from BBC. Their coverage goes above and beyond the normal range. As we continue to see Mercedes break all sorts of records with these teammates, there is a certain art to streaming races. More streaming services open up every day, so it is important to find the best coverage for your goals.
Enjoy all the excitement of the 2016 Brazilian Grand Prix, and watch our two favorite competitors duke it out for another round of racing excellence.
