Fans following this year’s Formula 1 season coverage will be able to choose from a selection of different cameras for viewing the action.

BBC Sport will provide unprecedented live streams from several parts of Grand Prix tracks on web-enabled devices.

There are now five different video options on top of the usual live TV coverage, with viewers able to watch from the pit-lane camera, follow the driver tracker or watch a stream from on-board cameras.

Options to watch TV pictures with Radio 5 live commentary over the top and a timing screen are also available.

The all-access coverage will be open to audiences through the BBC Sport website and via the BBC Sport apps for mobiles, tablets and connected TVs, but not on satellite TV or Freeview. The live pit-lane camera will also be available through the red button which will be available via satellite.

For race weekends hosted by Sky Sports, the BBC’s website will include live audio from Radio 5 alongside text commentary. Highlights will be accessible after all sessions and connected TVs will also include on-demand video highlights after each session, along with race reports and analysis.

Suzi Perry will present the BBC’s coverage, accompanied by chief analyst Eddie Jordan, expert analyst Allan McNish, commentators Ben Edwards and David Coulthard, and pit lane reporters Lee McKenzie and Tom Clarkson.
