By Gabriela Vatu / September 3, 2020

Get ready for the next Formula 1 Grand Prix this weekend, as we're heading over to Italy. We're planning on catching up with the event online, so let's see how you can do that as well.

The Italian Grand Prix is the fifth oldest national event of this kind, having been held since 1921 - which makes this year's event the 90th edition. Over the years, the Italian Grand Prix has been held on several raceways, but its home has been the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza starting with 2000.

The most successful drivers thus far have been Michael Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton. Lewis Hamilton has the chance to win again this year, after managing to do so in 2012, 2014, 2015, 2017, and 2018. Last year's winner was Ferrari's, Charles Leclerc.

How to Watch 2020 Italian Grand Prix From Anywhere?

If you happen to be traveling this weekend, you should know there are some things you need to do ahead of time, like getting a VPN. Live TV services are geo-blocked, so you are unable to access them from anywhere outside the US.

That being said, you'll need a VPN since these tools can change your IP address by routing your connection through their private servers. Our recommendation is the best we've tested thus far - ExpressVPN.

The service comes with thousands of servers in numerous countries of the world, some great privacy features, and a simple UI. You have to subscribe to ExpressVPN (49% OFF), get the right apps for your devices, and find a US-based server. Once you're connected, you can load fuboTV and start watching the Italian Grand Prix.
