MotoGP 2021 on UK TV with Live Streaming Options

2019 MotoGP Championship

2021 sees the return of MotoGP’s dominant force, Marc Marquez. After a season spent on the sidelines due to injury, he’s back hoping to reclaim the title of World Champion from his compatriot Joan Mir. If you want to see this battle unfold you can find out how to watch or stream every MotoGP race live right here.

2020 was a remarkable season for MotoGP both on and off the track. First of all the season didn’t even get properly underway until July due to the pandemic. Then, in the first race of the season reigning world champion Marc Marquez sustained a broken arm that ruled him out for the rest of the year.

What followed was one of the closest MotoGP Championships we have seen in a long time, with virtually every race giving us a new winner. Joan Mir eventually finished the season on top and in the process gave Suzuki their first World Title since Kenny Roberts Jr. in 2020.

Move forward to 2021 and things are nicely set up. Suzuki is back at the front and Ducati also has a great bike, meaning Honda will have to go some to get back on the podium. The first race of the season gets underway in Qatar in March (26th-28th), with the final race in Valencia coming in November (12th-14th). That means a total of 19 (confirmed) stops on this year’s calendar.

How to Watch MotoGP on UK TV

The 2021 MotoGP season is available to watch exclusively on BT Sport. They will provide Live and On Demand coverage from every race weekend, including practice sessions, qualifying and pit wall interviews.

At this moment in time, there is no Freeview broadcaster for MotoGP highlights. Quest held the rights in 2020, but going into the 2021 season it is thought that the only place to watch MotoGP will be via BT.
