Sky Sports F1 is to broadcast all of next season's Formula 1 Grand Prix events live.

Ten of these races will be broadcast exclusively live, including the opening race in Australia on March 26th and the following race in China on April 9th.

Two of the final three races, held in Mexico on October 29th and Brazil on November 12th, will also only be available live on Sky Sports F1.

Formula 1 fans can also keep up with regular news on the latest developments in the sport, and live coverage of every practice and qualifying session.

Sky is particularly excited for the upcoming season as it will be showing Grand Prix action in ultra high-definition, which boasts picture quality four times better than standard HD TV.

In addition, Sky Q customers will be able to follow races from different camera angles and watch highlights alongside live coverage.

Martin Turner, Head of Formula 1 at Sky Sports, commented: "With UHD, it’s Formula 1 like you’ve never seen it before. 

"It will be the hardest, fastest, loudest season in years with new rules, new cars, new engines and new, massive tyres. 

"From the opening Grand Prix of the year to the season’s home-stretch, Sky Sports F1 remains the definitive place for fans to see every twist and turn of the season.”
