MotoGP Austria live stream 2021: how to watch Austrian Grand Prix online from anywhere
Our first weekend back in the saddle after a month away saw some serious shake-ups, not least of which was 23-year-old Jorge Martin’s flawless debut win. However, will our second visit to the Red Bull Ring be more predictable? We somehow doubt it. Read on as we explain how to watch all the Austrian Grand Prix action online – no matter where you are – with our MotoGP live stream guide.
In leg one of the Austrian two-parter, we saw a debut win for Martins, a rare five-make top five, and a fiery crash in lap three. That crash involved Lorenzo Savadori colliding with wild card Dani Pedrosa’s stricken KTM. The Italian’s Aprilia ruptured a fuel line and burst into flames, while Savadori himself ended up being stretchered away with a broken ankle bone, but otherwise safe.
After the race, we also saw a number of drivers hit with track-limit warnings – and Cal Crutchlow in particular expressed in no uncertain words his distaste for the Spielberg circuit’s design and the lack of nuance in the penalty procedures.
With a hefty lead bolstered by last weekend’s third place, it’s impossible for Quartararo to be unseated at the top of the standings for now, but in such a changeable season, we wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a upset when we return to Austria. However, all you need to do is follow our guide below as we explain how to watch the Austrian Grand Prix and get a MotoGP live stream from anywhere.
How to watch MotoGP from outside your country
If you find yourself abroad at all during the 2021 MotoGP season, you’ll likely find you’re unable to access your usual MotoGP coverage like you would at home. This isn’t necessarily cause for alarm, but rather the result of geo-blocking – best understood as digital borders that restrict certain services and content to certain parts of the world.
Fortunately, there’s a convenient way around this in the form of a VPN. This is a nifty bit of software that lets you whizz around these digital borders, thereby allowing you to globe-trot and still access your preferred MotoGP live stream. It’s a completely legal workaround, very affordable, and super easy to use – allow us to explain more.
