The 17th round of the 2018 Formula One season takes place this weekend at the Suzuka Circuit in Japan.

Britain’s Lewis Hamilton converted his pole position here into a race win last year, and moved closer to a fourth world championship in the process.

Hamilton’s title rival Sebastian Vettel retired from the race after just four laps, with his Ferrari suffering mechanical failure.

All five sessions – practices, qualifying and the race – will be shown live on Channel 4 and Sky Sports F1. Channel 4 will also air highlights of the race at 12.30pm on Sunday afternoon.

Qualifying starts at 7am on Saturday morning, and the race goes off at 6.10am on Sunday morning.
