The 2017 Formula One season continues this weekend with the Russian Grand Prix at the Sochi Autodrom, where Lewis Hamilton is hoping to make it four wins out of five on this track.
It was Hamilton’s teammate Nico Rosberg who was victorious here last year.
With the German having retired from the sport at the end of last season after securing the Drivers’ Championship, this year’s title already looks set to be a two-horse race between Rosberg’s former teammate Lewis Hamilton and Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, with the latter having triumphed last time out in Bahrain.
All five sessions – practices, qualifying and the race – will be shown live on Channel 4 and Sky Sports F1.
Qualifying starts at 1pm on Saturday afternoon, and the race goes off at 1pm on Sunday afternoon.
