Broadcasting every session from every grand prix in 2012, Sky Sports' dedicated F1 channel will be going to air live at 1am on Friday morning to cover Practice One from Melbourne as the cars hit the Albert Park track for the first time.
Coverage of Practice Two then begins at the rather more reasonable hour of 5.15am and will be followed at 9.30am by the first edition of The F1 Show, presented by Georgie Thompson and Ted Kravitz.
The action then resumes at 2.45am on Saturday morning with coverage of the third and final Practice session and is followed with live and exclusive coverage of Qualifying from 5am.
For those of you who like a Saturday morning lie-in, the Qualifying programme will be shown again at both 8.30am and 12.30pm.
Every session of the weekend is then repeated in full from 8pm, culminating in the start of coverage of the Australian GP from 4.30am with Sky Sports F1's coverage of the race both live and exclusive as well as uninterrupted.
Our race-day coverage will then be repeated in full at 9.30am and 2.30pm, with a highlights package broadcast at 7.30pm and 9.30pm on Sunday night.
Bring it on!
