As a recent convert to the exciting world of Formula One racing, my wife Jen and I have been thoroughly captivated by this adrenaline-fueled sport. Since discovering our love for F1 last year, we’ve been avidly following every race, always looking for ways to enhance our viewing experience. In my quest for more information about the sport, I’ve come across some valuable resources that I believe will be useful for both new and seasoned fans. Here are some of the best finds that I wanted to share.
F1 App for Smart TV
Jen and I watch F1 using the F1 TV app on our Apple TV here are other ways to watch if you using a different device on your TV.
Since Chromecast is a media streaming device, you can’t install F1 TV on it as such. However, you can cast the service on a monitor or TV using Chromecast.
Once connected, open Google Chrome on your computer, and click on the three vertical dots icon at the top right. Select Cast from the menu bar, and it’ll cast your browser’s content on the TV or monitor.
On your iOS or Android mobile device, simply play the content and press the ‘Chromecast’ button.
On Firefox, you will need to install an extension on the browser to enable Chromecast support.
MultiViewer for F1
This app on your computer allows for you to watch multiple views from F1 races the way you see fit. It does require a F1 TV subscription but its really hard to be a fan and not have this subscription to watch the races. With this you can see so many different views of the race, here is a few from their website people are using.

If you love watching F1 with the official live timing it can sometimes be annoying if your TV feed is delayed. Knowing an overtake has happened before you see it can spoil the fun. This extension allows you to delay the live timing feed to match with your TV.
Click the “Display Delayed Timing” button when you’re on the F1 Live Timing page to access the delayed feed and additional visualisations to enhance your F1 experience. You must be on the leaderboard tab before clicking.
