As befits a new year which will see the sport run to a brand new set of regulations, the Sky F1 team have decided to give our Friday night flagship show a sprucing-up of its own, with all the London-based programmes to be recorded in front of a live studio audience and presented by an ever-changing line-up of your favourite presenters, reporters and pundits.
To kick things off for our first show of 2014, Simon Lazenby and Natalie Pinkham will be joined by both Martin Brundle and Johnny Herbert for a jam-packed programme that will put you in the picture for the new season after a dramatic winter and an utterly fascinating 12 days of winter testing.
Just what has gone at reigning World Champions Red Bull? And is it true that Mercedes and Williams are the new frontrunners? We'll have an in-depth assessment of pre-season testing in the company of - who else?! - Ted Kravitz as we appraise the current pecking order ahead of next week's Australian GP.
In addition, we'll hear direct from two drivers who, regardless of the RB10's struggles, will be very much in the spotlight throughout 2014: Daniel Ricciardo and four-times World Champion Sebastian Vettel. How would Daniel deal with a situation akin to Multi-21? And just what did Sebastian think when he heard he'd be partnered by another Australian? You'll just have to tune in to find out!
What else? Well, in a feature that is sure to make for compelling viewing, we'll have an exclusive interview with 'Mr McLaren' himself as Ron Dennis reveals his plans for 2014 after returning to power at Woking.
And last but by no means least, we'll reveal your choice for the Race of the Century as we publish the final results of our online poll in which you can choose the identity of the first grand prix to feature in our F1 a Day series that starts this Friday night immediately after The F1 Show and runs all the way through until December 31.
But enough about how 2014 will end - just make sure you don't miss the start of the year this Friday night at 8pm on Sky F1!
