The 2017 Formula One season gets underway this weekend (24-26 March) with the opening round at Albert Park, Melbourne, Australia.

Mercedes will be looking to steer one of their drivers to victory for the fourth year in succession.

Last year’s world champion Nico Rosberg, who took the chequered flag here in 2014 and 2016, is not part of the team following his decision to retire at the end of last season, with Valtteri Bottas now partnering Lewis Hamilton.

All five sessions – three rounds of practice, qualifying and the race – will be shown live on Sky Sports F1, while Channel 4 will have highlights of qualifying and the race.
