Formula 1 travels from the hot streets of Singapore to the former Winter Olympics venue of Sochi this weekend for the Russian Grand Prix. The pinnacle series brings the junior categories of Formula 2 and GP3 with it, as the championship battles in all series pick up.

For viewers in the UK and Ireland, all of the F1 sessions will be shown exclusively on Sky Sports F1. Channel 4 will be running with highlight packages of qualifying and the race on Saturday and Sunday evening respectively.

Lewis Hamilton currently holds the advantage in the title fight leading rival Sebastian Vettel by 40 points. Vettel will be looking to eat into Hamilton's lead with just six races remaining in the 2018 season. Ferrari sits 35 points behind Mercedes in the battle between the constructors.
