F1 2016: Japan – Live TV Coverage on Sky Sports; Highlights on Channel 4

The 17th round of the 2016 Formula One season takes place this weekend at the Suzuka Circuit in Japan.

Lewis Hamilton was victorious here last year, with Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg in second.

That victory moved Hamilton ever-closer to a second consecutive world title, and third overall, and the Englishman will be hoping for a repeat performance this time around as he starts this weekend 23 points behind he’s teammate.

All five sessions – practices, qualifying and the race – will be shown live on Sky Sports F1, while Channel 4 will air highlights of qualifying and the race.

Qualifying starts at 7am on Saturday morning, and the race goes off at 6am on Sunday morning.
