The French Grand Prix is back again after a decade. The exhilarating Formula 1 competition will be held at the Circuit Paul Ricard, better known as le Castellet.
The races are set to start on 24 June but practising and qualifying will be held on the 22nd and 23rd. Some of the best drivers will be competing for the prize in the French grand prix which is bound to be an action-packed competition.
You can stream the French Grand Prix on your computer or android device using Kodi, but remember before you do that, you should have a good VPN in place.
Why do you Need a VPN?
Always use a VPN when streaming content online. Firstly, it will improve your internet speed by creating a stable connection between you and the host. A VPN will also help you bypass geographical restrictions meaning you can view content from anywhere in the world.
I recommend Shellfire VPN for your streaming needs. It is efficient and designed for streaming purposes. Shellfire VPN will also give you anonymity as you stream online as it creates a secure and encrypted tunnel between your device and the VPN server. This way, third-party observers cannot view your public information or be able to access your connection. This eliminates the possibility of your ISP throttling your connection which interferes with your streaming in the process.
There are free VPNs out there, but I’d stay far away from them. Many free VPNs slow down your connection and there have been quite a few instances where the software ended up installing malicious files on devices. I’ve tried quite a few paid VPN solutions over the years, but Shellfire is by far one of the easiest to use. The software just works and the VPN servers that you can connect to are really speedy which is very important!
