UK broadcaster Channel 4, which has taken over the Formula 1 television rights from the BBC for 2016, has announced which races it will broadcast live.
The season opener in Australia will be shown exclusively on Sky Sports F1, with Channel 4 opting to wait until the second round in Bahrain before broadcasting its first live F1 race.
It will also broadcast the new European Grand Prix which will be held in Baku, Azerbaijan, the British GP and the season ending Abu Dhabi GP.
The channel has taken over the BBC’s contract, which had three years remaining, which means it has the rights to show half the races live, whilst the remainder will be shown as an extended highlights package.
Earlier this month, C4 confirmed that David Coulthard would move across, continuing his pundit and commentary role, whilst also confirming that races would be advert-free.
Further plans are due to be announced in the coming weeks.
The full list of live races: Bahrain, Spain, Europe (Azerbaijan), Britain, Hungary, Belgium, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico and Abu Dhabi.
