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.

TikTok star Nikita Crump has managed to pull off the incredible feat of living in her car, a 2012 Honda Civic, for over one year. Now, she has explained how she was able to pull it off in a new YouTube video.

Crump’s journey began in a video first uploaded on November 3, 2019 where she explained how she officially told her landlord she would be moving out of her home and into her car.

According to Crump, this wasn’t some impromptu decision and she had been spending a few months actively thinking about it before taking the plunge.

Nikita has been living in her car for over a year.

Despite having a nice house with affordable rent and good roommates, she felt moving into her car was something she “had to do.”

Since then, she has successfully spent a whole year living in her car and marked the anniversary of her first night by explaining how she is able to stay cool or warm at night.

In the backseat of her car, the YouTuber keeps a pillow and too fuzzy blankets which she uses to cover herself up.

Along with her sweatpants and sweatshirt, she is able to stay warm even in the winter months. However, occasionally she has to put a jacket on if it’s ever especially cold outside.

“In Northern California, a lot of the warmer days are still cool nights, so I’m fortunate that most nights throughout the year are totally bearable, but there’s totally been the occasion where it is hot, I am sweating and I wear as minimal clothing as I can,” she explained.

Luckily, she also has a rechargeable fan which can help her get through the night if need be despite only staying charged for one day.

In addition to just staying cool, the TikTok sensation also revealed she showers at the gym and keeps plenty of personal hygiene products inside her bag including shampoo, toothpaste, and deodorant to name a few.

Now, Crump is hitting the road and embarking on a two-month-long trip around the United States where she’ll be documenting her experiences.

The entertainer’s decision to live in her car has paid dividends, as she currently has over one million followers on TikTok.
