Sky go and F1 in America

Hello, people in my phone! I'm travelling to the States on Sunday for 2 weeks and would like to be able to watch the F1 while I'm there, on my phone. I currently have Sky Glass, Sky Go, SSF1 and an iPhone with (something like) iOS 16. 
I have been told that a 'VPN' will allow me to watch British TV in America but, after reading through a few things, it seems that I might not be able to stream from SkyGo out there at all? Any advice would be very appreciated!

 

Also, if I can't watch it the way I want, does anyone know how I CAN watch it? 🙂 The irony hasn't escaped me that this weeks race is Texas, either ...

 

Thank you for any help you can give me!

It isn't possible to watch live tv on Sky Go while in America and as this is an official Sky forum it isn't a good idea to discuss how to get around such restrictions. I should image there will be a tv channel out there broadcasting the race....

It's on ESPN  - I ended up watching the Singapore GP via a free trial of Fubo TV ( a legitimate streaming platform).

Like any other streaming provider which is obliged to try and enforce regional content licencing deals, Sky will attempt to detect and block Go access from outside the UK.
