How to watch 2023 F1 season in Australia: TV channel, streaming and schedule for Formula One campaign

F1 returns for the all-new 2023 season which will see Australian driver Oscar Piastri make his debut in the sport for McLaren.

The 21-year-old — who controversially left Alpine to join McLaren for the upcoming season — will be hoping to replicate his success in F2 and F3 over recent years to put together a solid rookie season with the British team. 

The starting grid will be without Daniel Ricciardo however, who lost his seat to Piastri and will instead feature as a reserve driver for Red Bull this year. 

For all the details on how to watch the 2023 F1 action, we have you covered.
