Here’s the full F1 Calendar race dates for 2014, with the opening race of the new season taking place in Melbourne, Australia on the 16th of March.

Every race of the 2014 Formula One season will be broadcast live in the UK on Sky Sports F1, with just under half the meetings being covered live on the BBC. The BBC have now officially announced which races they’ll be broadcasting in full, with only 9 of the 19 races being shown live in 2014.

We’ve marked these 9 races on the calendar below as Live to show you which meeting will be getting comprehensive BBC coverage. Those Grand Prix’s not marked will just be shown as highlights.

This new calendar does however feature a number of changes for 2014. Firstly with the return of the Austrian Grand Prix at the renamed Red Bull Ring, which used to be known as the A1 Ring. Then secondly there’s the debut of the Russian Grand Prix at the brand new Sochi International Street Circuit.

Those of us without access to Sky will have to wait until Malaysia at the end of March to watch their first full race of the new season:
