Formula 1 heads to the Suzuka Circuit this weekend, one of the tracks that drivers universally adore. The twisting, fast and narrow track provides a tough challenge for F1 drivers, but rewarding should they get it right.

For viewers in the UK and Ireland, all free practice sessions, qualifying and the Grand Prix will be shown live on both Sky Sports F1 and Channel 4. There will be no Formula 2 or GP3 support series running this weekend, as they have just one round remaining on the calendars - Abu Dhabi.

Lewis Hamilton currently holds the advantage in the title fight, after a taking victory at the Russian Grand Prix. Hamilton now holds a 50 point lead in the championship as the season enters its final 5 races. Take a look at the full schedule below.

              Session        Local Time    British Standard Time                                  (BST)
