Sky Sports F1 will show 11 Grands Prix exclusively live this year, the broadcaster has announced.
The first race of the season – the Australian Grand Prix, which takes place 23rd-25th March – is exclusively live on Sky. So are the French Grand Prix, which returns to Circuit Paul Ricard in Le Castellet for the first time in nearly 30 years, and the German Grand Prix from Hockenheim, which returns after a one-year absence.
Other exclusives include Spain (11th-13th May), Canada (8th-10th June), Hungary (27th-29th July) and and Brazil (9th-11th November).
The other 10 races will be shown live on Sky Sports F1 and Channel 4. The latter will air its races without advert breaks.
Last year's champion, Lewis Hamilton, will be looking to defend his title this year.
"Each season we look to find new ways to improve the coverage and entertain our viewers and this year will be no different," said Scott Young, head of Formula 1 at Sky Sports.
Sky's presenting team includes Martin Brundle, Damon Hill, Johnny Herbert and Anthony Davidson, while Channel 4 has Steve Jones, David Coulthard and Lee Mckenzie on hand.
From 2019, Sky will hold the exclusive Formula 1 broadcast rights in the UK.
