Need to know where to watch the Qatar Grand Prix? We've put together this guide to ensure you can keep up with the next leg of the 2021 F1 Championship on Sunday, Nov. 21.

Previously, Lewis Hamilton reduced Max Verstappen's lead in the battle for the Championship by securing victory in Sao Paulo at the Brazilian Grand Prix last weekend.

The Brazil GP was full of tension for the top two drivers; Verstappen earned himself a €50,000 fine for touching and inspecting Hamilton's car during parc ferme and Hamilton was disqualified from the qualifying race despite coming in first.

Even with the drama before the race, Hamilton put in an incredible performance. Due to a second infraction, he began the race in 10th place after finishing fifth in the Sprint on Saturday, but he fought his way forward as the race wore on before finally speeding past Verstappen on lap 59 to bring home a vital win.

Hamilton's win shrunk Verstappen's lead to just 14 points; will he continue to close that gap in Qatar? Here's how to watch the 2021 Qatar Grand Prix so you don't miss out on what's sure to be another exciting race...
