What channel is Formula 1 on today? TV schedule, start time for 2021 Spanish Grand Prix

The first double-header of the 2021 Formula 1 season finishes up in Spain this weekend.

Through the first three races of the season, it’s as expected: the battle at the top features Lewis Hamilton, reigning champion, and future champion Max Verstappen. The Mercedes-Red Bull duel is going to provide much-needed competition at the front of the grid all throughout 2021. 

But where things get very interesting may be the battle for third: McLaren and Ferrari should be locked in a battle this year if early results are any indication, with Lando Norris, Daniel Ricciardo, Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz are all drivers to watch the rest of the way.

This week, the drivers get ready for lights out at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

Here’s what you need to know about this week’s F1 race:
