Lewis Hamilton will open his title defence exclusively live only on Sky Sports F1 at the Australian Grand Prix.
The first race live from Albert Park will be the start of Hamilton’s quest to win another world championship and match Sir Jackie Stewart’s British record of three Formula 1 world titles.
Viewers can enjoy coverage from the entire weekend with practice, qualifying and race day all live.
Sky Sports F1 will be the only place to watch the full 2015 FIA Formula One World Championship with coverage of the Australian GP in March one of ten grands prix exclusively live in 2015 including Monaco, Singapore, America and Mexico.
The Australian GP will open one of the most eagerly awaited seasons in years, with new driver line-ups at McLaren, Ferrari, Red Bull, Sauber and Toro Rosso, the introduction of the Mexican Grand Prix, and three drivers making their F1 debuts including Max Verstappen becoming the youngest ever at just 17.
Sky Sports F1 executive producer Martin Turner said: "All eyes are on world champion Lewis Hamilton and Sky Sports F1 will be the only place to follow every race of his title defence. There are so many exciting story lines next season and we’ll cover every twist and turn from Australia to Abu Dhabi."
Commentary this season will again come from Martin Brundle and David Croft, with expert analysis by Damon Hill, Anthony Davidson, Johnny Herbert and Bruno Senna. Fronting the coverage are presenters Simon Lazenby and Natalie Pinkham alongside reporter Ted Kravitz.
In addition to a full live Formula 1 calendar, viewers can enjoy live coverage of Formula 1 feeder series GP2 and GP3. The live race weekends will be supported by weekly episodes of the F1 Show and round the clock coverage on Sky Sports News HQ, skysports.com/formula1 and @skysportsf1.
