Formula 1 returns to our television screens this weekend with the 2022 Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne.

F1 has undergone its biggest transformation in terms of technical regulations in a long time with entirely new aerodynamics concepts and 18-inch tyres introduced in a bid to improve wheel-to-wheel racing.

ExpressVPN is offering all customers an extra three months free if they take out the 12-month plan (a saving of 49%) and a 30-day money-back guarantee so they can try it risk-free

The season so far has been enthralling with Ferrari returning to the top step of the podium in Bahrain with Charles Leclerc before Max Verstappen took his first win of the season in Jeddah. 

It has been mixed so far for Lewis Hamilton, who finished third in Bahrain but then struggled to 10th in Saudi Arabia after being knocked out in Q2.

With 22 races currently scheduled on the F1 calendar, here’s how you can watch the upcoming campaign no matter where you are in the world through ExpressVPN.
