Formula 1 will not be broadcast on free TV in the 2023 season either. After more than 30 years, RTL has decided to no longer purchase the TV rights due to the high costs. Until 2022, the private broadcaster, in cooperation with the pay TV broadcaster Sky, still showed four races on free TV, but these will also be completely eliminated for the 2023 season. These are now offered by Sky on its own YouTube channel via stream.
This means that from this season onwards all official F1 broadcasts in Germany can only be seen via Sky. However, if you use a VPN, you can still enjoy Formula 1 for free, so to speak.

Our country neighbors Austria (ORF, ServusTV) and Switzerland (SRF) continue to show Formula 1 on free TV. Unfortunately, due to a country block, we cannot easily view these broadcasts, for example via live streams. With a VPN – such as that from Cyberghost, ExpressVPN, Surfshark VPN or NordVPN – you can easily bypass this country block and save yourself the high costs for the pay TV channel Sky.

With a VPN you can watch Formula 1 legally and almost for free. So not about flimsy streams from a gray area of the Internet.
