Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen’s gripping championship battle continues at this weekend’s Turkish GP, and you can watch it all live on Sky Sports F1.
The title protagonists – following an epic Russian GP where Hamilton took his 100th F1 win but Verstappen recovered from 20th to second – are split by just two points heading to Istanbul Park, where more drama is in store.
The Turkish GP, on the calendar again this season after its incident-filled 2020 return following a nine-year absence, is one of seven remaining races and so is crucial for the championship.
The key times for this weekend are:
- Qualifying starts at 1pm on Saturday, with build-up from 12pm
- The race starts at 1pm on Sunday, with build-up from 11.30am
Sky F1’s coverage begins on Thursday with the live F1 Show from the paddock, dissecting all the news from media day, while it will be boosted by the return of Jenson Button this weekend.
