Fans of Formula 1 will be over the moon to hear that October’s Nurburgring F1 Grand Prix will be streamed in its entirety for free on YouTube, heralding a new era of accessibility for the sport.

With recent world events changing the way we participate in and watch sports, F1 has been exploring different ways of distributing and streaming their content.
Their YouTube channel, in partnership with Liberty Media, has proved particularly successful, reaching nearly 4 million subscribers.

Full coverage of the race weekend

The stream will cover the entirety of the race weekend. Therefore viewers can enjoy access to not only the race itself, but also race previews, highlights, and full post-race analysis all for free.
While the stream will be completely free to watch for viewers, F1 has confirmed that they are working in a commercial element to the deal. This means that the stream will be subject to advertisements throughout in order to make it commercially viable for F1.

Geographical restrictions do apply

Unfortunately, not everyone will be able to access the live Eifel GP stream. Access is restricted exclusively to residents of Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Belgium.

Adam Crothers, Head of Digital Media Right for F1, said: “We are thrilled to be working with YouTube on such an exciting project.

“As we continue to diversify our media distribution strategy and expand our digital offering, it is imperative that we engage fans who consume mediums differently and YouTube offers us the platform to achieve that.”

The goal here is to attract younger viewers to the sport without the financial barrier that comes from subscription services such as Sky Sports, thereby opening up the sport to those without access to a TV license.

Reaching the future of F1s fanbase

A whopping 70% of F1’s YouTube audience is under the age of 35. Making a move to online streaming could prove to be a smart move, to expand its audience base.

Fans will be hoping continued success of F1s partnership with YouTube and Liberty Media will result in access to the stream being rolled out to other countries and fanbases across the globe.

Musicians have one of the most intensive lifestyles in the world, touring the globe to promote their work to millions of people. Thankfully, hard work brings rewards, which rappers often spend on incredible car collections.

Luxury items such as exotic cars are seen as a status symbol. They’re a fantastic way to not only ‘flex’ wealth, but also make a statement wherever they go.

Successful rappers such as Drake and Travis Scott love nothing more than showing off their success with ultra-expensive cars, but they’re far from the only ones. Below, we’ve rounded up five of the most expensive cars ever to be owned by rap artists for your enjoyment.

4. Travis Scott’s Maybach G650 Landaulet – $1 million

Travis Scott has one of the most incredible car collections of any rapper. Featuring Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Bugattis, one of the rarest (and most expensive) cars is his Maybach G650 Landaulet.

With only 99 built, the G650 Landaulet is based upon the Mercedes G Wagon. Featuring a custom extended body with convertible rear section, the G650 puts out over 600hp from its V12 engine.

3. Post Malone’s McLaren Senna XP – $1.7 million

Post Malone is known for his keen love of custom and exotic cars. With his fleet ranging from a custom 1992 Ford Explorer (which he named a song after) to Rolls-Royces, the jewel in this rapper’s collection is undoubtedly his McLaren Senna.

His Senna is no ordinary hypercar, however, with Post having one of the ultra-rare prototypes from McLaren themselves. Dubbed the Senna XP, Master of Monaco, this one-off prototype is worth significantly more than a standard McLaren Senna.

Kanye’s McLaren SLR Stirling Moss is one of only 75 in the world.

2. Kanye West’s McLaren SLR ‘Stirling Moss’ – $2 million

Kanye’s collection is an eclectic one, but the standout car has to be his McLaren SLR Stirling Moss. Based on the already legendary McLaren SLR, the ‘Stirling Moss’ edition pays tribute to the legendary racing driver of the same name.

Featuring an open two-seat cockpit, 641bhp, and a top speed of 220 mph, the SLR Stirling Moss is a serious performance car. It’s collectible, too, and could turn out to be a very good investment for Kanye in the long run.
