UK Formula 1 TV broadcasters Sky Sports and BBC announce 2014 plans

Under the shared deal that began in 2012, Sky shows the whole F1 season live on its dedicated channel, while the BBC broadcasts live from nine grands prix with highlights packages for the remainder.

Sky has exclusive live rights to the season-opener in Australia on March 16, but the BBC's live coverage commences one round earlier than in 2013 as it begins with Malaysia two weeks later.

The BBC's selections also include the inaugural Russian Grand Prix on October 12, as well as the season finale in Abu Dhabi.

Neither broadcaster has announced any changes to their presenter line-ups for 2014.
