Are you looking for ways to watch French Grand Prix 2021 live stream? If yes then in this article I will tell you about different live streaming platforms for Formula 1. To know all about it, you need to read the article to the end. But, before I start telling you about the live-streaming platforms, let me give you guys a little preview of the upcoming races and what has happened in the season so far.
Formula 1 2021 Season So Far
The first two rounds of the F1 2021 have been completed with Lewis Hamilton winning the first race in Bahrain and Max Verstappen winning the second race in Imola. This season will be a close duel between both the drivers as both have strong cars. Valteri Bottas, the other Mercedes driver didn’t start the season well. He finished 3rd in the first race and didn’t finish the second race due to the huge crash between him and George Russell. Williams’s driver George Russell was quite furious with the Bottas but both drivers weren’t at fault as Russell’s car slipped due to the water on the track.
Ferrari has got a good start to the season as compared to the last which was quite horrific for anyone associated with the Italian manufacturer. They don’t have the similar straight line which they had in the 2019 season. But, it is a lot better as compared to the last season. They have a young driver line-up with Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz driving for the Italian team.
McLaren has also started the season well with Lando Norris getting a podium in the second race. Lando drove quite well in the wet conditions and got the third position in the race. His teammate Daniel Riccardo finished 6th behind both the Ferrari drivers. It will be great to watch the battles between Ferrari and McLaren again.
Currently, Lewis Hamilton is first in the driver standings with 44 points followed by Max Verstappen with 43 points. McLaren driver Lando Norris is in the third position in the driver standings with 27 points. In the constructor standings, Mercedes has the top spot followed by RedBull and McLaren respectively.
F1 2021 Race Schedule
This time there will be a total of 23 races, with the season opener in Bahrain and the last race in the UAE Yas Marina circuit.

The Platforms like Total Sportek, Sportsurge and Crackstreams provide high-quality streaming to the users without any subscription cost.

From my experience, these websites are the only way to watch the F1 races for free. In some regions, the F1 races aren’t broadcasted and fans cannot watch the live stream on the platform. But, thanks to these platforms you can easily watch the live stream from anywhere in the world. You just need an internet connection and a compatible smart device.

How to Watch the Live Streaming of French GP 2021 on Mobile

Why You Need a VPN to Access the Live Stream
Whenever you’re trying to watch a restricted content in your area, you need a VPN to access it. With VPN, you can access the content from different parts of the world without telling about the exact location to the broadcaster. For instance, if any of the official streaming platforms aren’t available in your area then you can use the VPN to watch the live stream on the chosen streaming website. If you want to access Sky Sports F1 live stream then you must be living in the United Kingdom. Otherwise, you cannot access the live stream and you ought to use a VPN.
A VPN lets you choose a location from where you want the traffic to come from. This way the administrators of the streaming platform think that you’re in the local vicinity. This way the administrator unblocks the live stream for you. However, you must use a top-notch VPN service because if you’re not using a good VPN then it will not mask your location for long. Once the site administrator knows about your exact location, he/she will block the live stream again for you. So, always use a good VPN service.
Some of the best VPN services for watching the French Grand Prix live stream are given below.
When anyone talks about the VPN, the name of ExpressVPN comes into mind. ExpressVPN is one of the best VPN service available on the internet with thousands of downloads and active users. It lets you unblock the content you want to see. It hides your online identity and keeps you safe from cybercriminals and doesn’t let anyone track your online activity. To use it, just install the software on your PC or device. Once you have downloaded it, turn the VPN on and select the location from where you want the traffic the steer from.
It is another popular name in the VPN industry that does a good job in hiding your online identity and allows you to watch geo-restricted content like French GP live stream. With NordVPN, you can show the telecaster that you’re in the local area and the telecaster gives you access to the stream. The process of using NordVPN is simple, just download the VPN on your PC or device. Once downloaded, turn it on and select the location which you want to show to the telecaster.
The best thing about CyberGhost is the strong data encryption that stops all the malicious attacks on your device. With CyberGhost turned on, you can unblock any restricted content or site. For instance, if the Formula 1 live stream isn’t available in your region, you can turn on CyberGhost and select the location where the stream is available. It is a paid application and cannot be used without getting subscribed to it.
