What channel is Formula 1 on today? TV schedule, start time for Emilia Romagna Grand Prix

It’s all Mercedes, all the time in 2020.

Either Lewis Hamilton or Valtteri Bottas has taken home the win for Team Mercedes in 10 of the 12 races run in the 2020 F1 season. Hamilton has taken home eight first-place finishes, with Bottas taking home a couple of top spots, as well.

This week, F1 makes a return to Imola for the   Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, with a race being held at Imola for the first time since 2006. The last winner at this track? Michael Schumacher. So it’s only fitting that Hamilton has a chance to lengthen his wins record over Schumacher this weekend, a week after setting the record in Portugal.

With just five races left on the 2020 F1 slate, it’s looking like another world championship at the finish line for Hamilton and Mercedes. Next stop: Imola.

Here’s what you need to know about this Sunday’s GP:

What channel is the F1 race on today?

Either ESPN or ESPN2 will broadcast all 2020 F1 races in the United States using Sky Sports’ feed.

All F1 races on ESPN and ESPN2 air commercial-free, and all practice sessions and qualifying air live and in replay across ESPN platforms.

In addition, ESPN Deportes serves as the exclusive Spanish-language home for all 2020 F1 races in the U.S.

What time does the F1 race start today?

The 7:10 a.m. ET start time for Sunday’s race means the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix will start at 1:10 p.m. local time. ESPN’s broadcast starts five minutes earlier at 7:05 a.m, not taking into account the pre-race show.

Because most of the 17 F1 races currently confirmed on the 2020 schedule will take place in Western Europe, expect start times to inch closer to 9:10 a.m. over the coming months.

Below is the complete TV schedule for the weekend’s F1 events at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. All times are Eastern.

Please note, these are start of the event times. ESPN’s brodcasting schedule begins five minutes earlier.

Formula 1 schedule 2020

F1 in July released an update to what is now a 17-race schedule that runs through at least early November. The organization wanted a slate of 15-18 races for its 2020 season, and it looks to have succeeded. 

“We currently expect the opening races to be closed events, but hope fans will be able to join our events again when it is safe to do so,” F1 said in June. “The health and safety of all involved will continue to be priority number one, with Formula 1 and the FIA having a robust and detailed plan to ensure our races maintain the highest level of safety with strict procedures in place.”
