Sky Sports will get the 2015 FIA Formula One Championships off to a flying start with exclusive live coverage of the season-opening Australian Grand Prix on March 15th.

The Sky Sports cameras will be at Melbourne's Albert Park to see Lewis Hamilton begin his title defence in the new Mercedes.

Viewers will be able to enjoy coverage from the entire weekend, including every practice session, qualifying and race day itself.

With new driver line-ups at McLaren, Ferrari, Red Bull, Sauber and Toro Rosso, and three drivers making their F1 debuts, it promises to be an intriguing battle.

The question is, will any of the constructors have managed to narrow the gap to Mercedes, who were so dominant last season, over the winter? Or is it set to be another battle between teammates Hamilton and Nico Rosberg for the title?

Sky Sports will air ten of the 20 F1 grands prix exclusively live this season, and share broadcast rights to the other ten with the BBC.

In order to watch the races from Australia, China, Spain, Monaco, Austria, Germany, Italy, Singapore, USA and Mexico, viewers will need a Sky Sports subscription.

For Malaysia, Bahrain, Canada, Great Britain, Hungary, Belgium, Japan, Russia, Brazil and Abu Dhabi, motorsport fans will have a choice between Sky Sports and free-to-air TV.

Martin Turner, Sky Sports' Executive Producer of Formula 1, said all eyes are on world champion Lewis Hamilton in 2015, and Sky Sports F1 will be "the only place" to follow every race of his title defence.

"There are so many exciting story lines next season and we’ll cover every twist and turn from Australia to Abu Dhabi," he stated.

In addition to a full live F1 calendar, Sky Sports F1 viewers will be able to enjoy live coverage of feeder series GP2 and GP3.

Live race weekends will be supported by weekly episodes of the F1 Show and round-the-clock coverage on Sky Sports News HQ, and @skysportsf1.
