Athens, GA (Mar 26, 2009) - SIRIUS XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI) announced today that it has expanded its coverage of Formula 1™ auto racing and will broadcast every race from the 2009 F1™ season live on both SIRIUS and XM. The races, which aired on SIRIUS last season, will now be available to SIRIUS and XM listeners nationwide.

The 2009 F1™ schedule kicks off this weekend with the ING Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne on Sunday, March 29 (1:00 am ET). SIRIUS XM will carry the race live in its entirety on SIRIUS channel 126 and XM channel 242.
