If you're a Formula 1 fan, Sky Sports will be the only place to watch many of the top races next season.

The 2014 calendar has been confirmed and, as in 2013, Sky Sports will be sharing live broadcast rights to some of the races with the BBC.

However, ten of the 19 Grand Prix will not be available free-to-air - meaning you'll need a Sky Sports subscription to enjoy all the action.

The races in Australia, Bahrain, China, Monaco, Austria, Germany, Hungary, Singapore, USA and Brazil will only be shown on Sky Sports F1 and Sky Sports F1 HD.

Some of these - including Monte Carlo's famous street circuit, Hockenheim's forest ring and Interlagos in Brazil - are among the most iconic tracks in the world.

It remains to be seen whether any constructors can challenge the might of Red Bull next year, and prevent Sebastien Vettel from claiming a fifth consecutive world drivers' championship.

The 26-year-old German is on a blazing hot streak of nine consecutive wins, but a shake-up for next year could bring the likes of Ferrari and Mercedes into contention, threatening his dominance.

Martin Turner, Executive Producer of Formula 1 at Sky Sports, said a number of rule changes for 2014 - including the return of turbo-powered engines - mean it is "the most eagerly awaited season in years".

"Only on Sky Sports F1 HD can viewers enjoy the full story live," he stated.

"From the first corner in Australia to the chequered flag in Abu Dhabi, we’ll be there offering our viewers unrivalled live coverage and analysis."

Mr Turner said that Sky Sports' exclusive coverage includes several of the season’s key Grands Prix - including three of the first four races, and two of the final three.

Sky Sports viewers can enjoy every Formula 1 practice and qualifying session live, plus uninterrupted race coverage - without commercial breaks.

Motorsport fans have plenty more to look forward to as well, including coverage of the Formula 1 feeder series GP2 and GP3, which feature many of the world's best young drivers.
