Lewis Hamilton - Formula One - F1

The 2016 Formula One season continues this weekend with the Russian Grand Prix at the Sochi Autodrom, where Lewis Hamilton is hoping to make it a third successive win on this track.

Hamilton’s Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg started the 2015 race on pole, but a retirement on the seventh lap due to a locked throttle handed the lead to the Brit, who took full advantage and would eventually go on to win his third world championship at the end of the season.

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

Qualifying starts at 1pm on Saturday afternoon, and the race goes off at 1pm on Sunday afternoon.
