New-look cars. New driver and team combinations. And just three days of track testing to get up to speed before the new Formula 1 season begins.

There’s never been a pre-season testing schedule quite like this – and you can watch it all live on Sky Sports F1 from next Friday as Formula 1 2021 gets fully up and running with three days of action in Bahrain.

With coverage starting early morning on March 12 and running through the weekend, Sky F1 will be the place to be to watch the eight hours of live track action from each day – plus a nightly Round-up show and Ted’s Testing Notebook.

Sky F1’s Martin Brundle, David Croft, Ted Kravitz, Rachel Brookes and Karun Chandhok will be out in Bahrain to help tell the story of each day’s track running and all the big stories of pre-season.

Coverage on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday features:

  • Live coverage of morning & afternoon track sessions
  • Nightly wrap show rounding up the day’s key moments & interviews
  • Ted’s Testing Notebook
