The season begins with the Bahrain Grand Prix on March 28 and fans can catch all the action at 15.00 GMT. After that most European races begin at 13.00, meaning fans can plan ahead for much of the calendar and best prepare their Sunday rituals for the races.

There are some exceptions with Azerbaijan taking place at 12.00 along with Russia. Flyaways like Canada and the US Grand Prix start a bit later at 18.00 and 19.00 respectively.
