Sky Sports F1 will show exclusive coverage of the first grand prix of the season, as Britain’s four-time world champion Lewis Hamilton begins his title defence in Australia.
Two new grands prix for 2018 will also be shown exclusively live. Returning to the F1 calendar for the first time in nearly thirty years, Circuit Paul Ricard in Le Castellet will host the French Grand Prix in June, while the German Grand Prix from Hockenheim makes its comeback after a one-year absence.
Fans can enjoy every practice session, qualifying session and race live, with 11 exclusive race weekends, as Sky Sports builds towards becoming the exclusive home of F1 in 2019.
Scott Young, Head of Formula 1 at Sky Sports said: “There is huge anticipation this year; can Hamilton create even more history, how will Ferrari and Red Bull close the gap, where will the young drivers emerge in the reckoning?
“Each season we look to find new ways to improve the coverage and entertain our viewers and this year will be no different.”
Sky Sports’ in depth coverage will include analysis from a world class line up, headlined by Martin Brundle and former world champion Damon Hill, alongside Johnny Herbert, Paul di Resta and Anthony Davidson.
Fans can purchase the Sky Sports F1 channel for just £18 a month.
