The 2018 Formula One racing season begins early morning Sunday, March 25, at 1am ET with the Rolex Grand Prix of Australia at Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit.

All eyes will be on 2017 drivers' champion Lewis Hamilton and his heated rival Sebastien Vettel as they both seek a fifth F1 season championship.

All F1 fans' eyes in the U.S. will now be on ESPN's family of networks, as F1 and ESPN start a multiyear broadcast agreement that has all 21 races, plus practices and qualifying, airing on ESPN/ABC TV and digital platforms.

ESPN will present Sky Sports' coverage featuring expert commentators Simon Lazenby, Ted Kravitz, David Croft, Rachel Brookes, and Natalie Pinkham, and analysts Martin Brundle, Damon Hill, Johnny Herbert, Paul di Resta, Anthony Davidson, and 2016 F1 champion Nico Rosberg.
