Where To Watch Formula 1 Miami GP Live Streaming In India?

Formula 1 used to be live-streamed on Disney+ Hotstar. But if you’ve tried to live stream the Formula 1 races by searching for it, you will only find the Formula E races in the search results. Hotstar has also removed the option of Formula 1 under the Sports section in their app and website.

What happened was Formula 1 decided not to renew the TV and streaming rights with Star Sports and Disney+ Hotstar. Autocar India reports that Formula 1 felt the money the networks such as Star and Zee offered for this year’s Formula 1 TV rights was insufficient. Ian Holmes – Director of Media Rights and Content Creation at Formula 1, said, “We looked at the more traditional channels and platforms. Star was one of them. We had discussions with Zee and one or two others too. I want to be candid about this – we felt that the valuation of many of those parties placed on our property wasn’t similar to what we felt it was worth.”
