The 2019 Formula 1 season is almost underway, as this weekend, Melbourne plays host to the first round of the year.

As always for European fans, it will be an early start throughout the weekend, with the action kicking off at one in the morning on Friday.

Below you can see the full schedule for the weekend, which doesn't feature Formula 2 or Formula 3.

The Formula 2 championship will kick off in two weeks' time at Bahrain, while Barcelona will host the first round of the season in May later this year. 

For viewers in the UK and Ireland, all free practice sessions, qualifying and the Grand Prix will be shown live on  Sky Sports F1. Channel 4 will be running with highlight packages of qualifying and the race on Saturday and Sunday respectively.

  • Bring it! Doing the racing equivalent of the peepee dance. Want so bad to let it out but got to hold it for one more day! Maybe that's just this morning's coffee talking. Shaping up to be a great season!

  • Thinking about signing up for the official F1 TV stream this year. 10 bucks a month for great access to my favorite sport doesn't seem like that much. Anybody tried it out yet?
