If all goes well, Max Verstappen will become world champion in Formula 1 for the second time this Sunday. On the Honda home circuit, the 25-year-old Dutchman can secure the title with a win and the fastest race lap. Don’t want to miss anything from the Japanese Grand Prix? In this article, we will discuss the best apps to track the GP.
The Dutch broadcasting rights for Formula 1 have been with Viaplay since this year. The new streaming service is offered by the Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT) and provides all images from and about Formula 1. NENT took over the broadcasting rights from Ziggo for a gigantic amount, and aims to bring Formula 1 and other sports ‘on a completely new and modern way’. Whether this succeeds at all is another matter, unless you consider stuttering, a low resolution and stuttering images as ‘new and modern’.
There has already been a lot of criticism of Viaplay. Besides the often monotonous and uninteresting interviews of Stephane, the service has known many problems. For example, many people complained about poor image blur, poor audio sync, and app crashing. There was even a delivery of cash register dedicated to. To be fair, it seems to be getting better now. Although there are still people who experience problems. The service does not always work properly for Viaplay users in our editorial office. You can, however, follow the race via the Viaplay and the accompanying app and also take a seat in the car of different drivers. You then see images from their ‘helmet cam’ and so you can better see how they experience the race. The app can be downloaded below, a subscription to Viaplay costs 13.99 euros per month. You can also watch Premier League football, darts and various films and series.

Grand Prix Radio
You can also no longer listen to the comments of race reporter Olav Mol and pit reporter and dentist Jack Plooij via Viaplay. If you really want to hear this, you can switch to Grand Prix Radio. You can still listen to them here. During a race weekend, Grand Prix Radio comes with live commentary. The app also has news from Formula 1 every day and also comes with updates, background articles, interviews and its own podcast.

For the people who can’t get enough of Olav and Jack, they can go to Ziggo. On the Ziggo Sport channel, among others, Rob Kamphues, Olav Mol, Jack Plooij, Renger van der Zande and Rob van Gameren will present several programs about Formula 1. For example, there are previews and afterthoughts of the races, reports about the sport, opinions of several people from the racing world and interviews with team bosses, really only with Gunther Steiner but still. All this can be viewed by Ziggo subscribers on sports channel 14. It is also possible for them to watch this in the Ziggo Go app. With this app you can watch online TV on your laptop, smartphone and/or tablet.

As mentioned above, if Max Verstappen wins, including the fastest race lap, he can become world champion in Formula 1 for the second time this Sunday in Japan. After Japan, there will be four more races. So if it doesn’t work out in Japan, then probably the next race in the United States. Hopefully next year the Formula 1 championship will be a lot more exciting. Although our favorite driver Vettel will not return. Then become a fan of Albon!
