Last Updated: 21/03/18 7:40am
Formula 1 is back and Sky Sports F1 is the only place where you can watch every minute of the season-opening Australian GP this weekend.
F1 2018 is set up to be the 'fight for five' as reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel seek to become only the third driver in history to win five world championships.
Every race live on Sky F1
Sky Sports F1 remains the only place to watch every Formula 1 race - and every track session - live in 2018.
But with Red Bull poised to close the gap on Mercedes and Ferrari to make it a three-team battle, F1 2018 should be unmissable - and you can watch every session live on Sky Sports F1, starting with the first round in Melbourne.
McLaren are also looking to get back into podium contention after their switch to Renault power units, and the fight to be the leading team behind the 'Big Three' looks set to be the tightest in years.
