It has never been easier to watch Formula 1 on the move thanks to Race Control on the Sky Sports App.

Race Control is available to Sky F1 subscribers on all devices through the Sky Sports app and will broadcast every minute of Formula 1 2019's track action.

To get into the driving seat for the new season, all you have to do as a Sky F1 subscriber is add the Sky Sports App to your phone:

iOS users: Download the Sky Sports App from the App Store
Android users: Download the Sky Sports App from the Play Store

What is Race Control?
Race Control is the digital version of the Sky Sports F1 channel with goodies attached.

In addition to providing a live stream of the Sky F1 channel during race weekends, users can also access the pit lane channel, onboard cameras, live data, and videos of on-track highlights.

In other words, it's up to you whether you want to use Race Control for its enhanced features, or as a second-screen experience, or use it for a live stream of Sky F1 when you're out and about.

You can enjoy Race Control on your iPhone, iPad, Android Phone or tablet and what's more - you can also stream the action from throughout the EU! You do not need to do anything differently, there are no additional steps or requirements, simply watch the action as you would when at home.

I'm a Sky Sports customer but don't have the Sky Sports app. Where do I get it?
You do not have to be a subscriber to download the Sky Sports App from the App Store - although only Sky F1 subscribers can access Race Control.

What network mode strength will be required?
Race Control will play with whatever connection the user has. But the stronger the connection, the better quality of the Race Control streams.

Will I still be able to watch Sky F1 on the Red Button and Sky Go?
Yes. Sky F1 will still be available on Sky Go and our Red Button service, accessed via your TV screens, will be similarly unaffected.
