Sky Sports announces its exclusive F1 race picks for 2018

1st February 2018

Showing live coverage of all 21 race weekends from across the globe, the first grand prix of the season begins in Australia where Britain’s four-time world champion, Lewis Hamilton, begins his title defence, shown exclusively live on Sky Sports.

The two new grands prix for 2018 will also be shown exclusively live.  Returning to the F1® calendar for the first time in nearly thirty years, Circuit Paul Ricard in Le Castellet will host the French Grand Prix in June, while the German Grand Prix from Hockenheim makes its comeback after a one-year absence.

David Rey, Managing Director of Sky Business said: “From the opening Grand Prix of the year to the season’s home-stretch, Sky Sports F1® remains the definitive place for pub viewers to see every twist and turn of the season.  There is huge anticipation this year; can Hamilton create even more history, how will Ferrari and Red Bull close the gap, where will the young drivers emerge in the reckoning?  Licensees and customers can enjoy every practice session, qualifying session and race live, with 11 exclusive race weekends, as Sky Sports builds towards becoming the exclusive home of F1 in 2019.”

Sky Sports’ in depth coverage will include analysis from a world class line up, headlined by Martin Brundle and former world champion Damon Hill, alongside Johnny Herbert, Paul di Resta and Anthony Davidson.
