The 2018 Formula One World Championship will be the last year for a while that live F1 will be available on terrestrial television in the UK.

This season Channel 4 will show 10 of the 21 Grand Prix live, with highlights available for the other 11 races.

Sky Sports will continue to show every practice session, qualifying and race live and from 2019, they will be the only broadcasters showing Formula One in the UK.

But for this season at least, there will still be a chance to watch F1 live and for free, including the Monaco Grand Prix, British Grand Prix, Belgian Grand Prix and the season finale at Abu Dhabi.

‘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? Head of Formula 1 at Sky Sports Scott Young told Sky Sports.

‘Each season we look to find new ways to improve the coverage and entertain our viewers and this year will be no different.’

This season Sky Sports will also be screening live coverage of the FIA Formula 2 Championship and the GP3 Series.
