Sky and BBC reveal 2015 Formula 1 coverage plan

As part of a share deal agreed for the start of 2012, the two broadcasters divide the races between them - with half being shown exclusively live on Sky.

This season, Sky is getting exclusive live rights to 10 grands prix. This includes the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, the blue-ribband event in Monaco and the returning event in Mexico.

The BBC will be showing the British GP live, and will broadcast four of the last six races as they happen.

The races that the BBC does not show live will be broadcast as edited highlights later in the day.
