Sky Sports is gearing up for another all-action season of Formula One action.

The broadcaster will once again be providing coverage of every race this year. Sky has unveiled its line-up of presenters, pundits and commentators for 2023.

It includes a major shake-up with two popular presenters being axed - and not replaced - for the forthcoming season. However it is not all gloom as many of the familiar faces and voices you would expect are returning.

The Bahrain Grand Prix was the first of a record 23 races through a packed calendar which finishes in Abu Dhabi on 26 November. Max Verstappen is bidding for his third consecutive world title.
