Highlights of Formula 1 races hosted by Steve Jones.
Steve Jones introduces live coverage of the Spanish Grand Prix from the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona, the fifth race of 2016 and the first of the European stage. In Sochi, it was business as usual as far as the last couple of races are concerned: championship leader Nico Rosberg in clean air while Lewis Hamilton fought his way onto the podium from somewhere back in the grid. This time last year, Rosberg enjoyed a perfect weekend while a frustrated Hamilton recovered from a poor start to finish in 2nd place. But this race has thrown up some surprises in recent years with nine different winners in as many races. Can anyone spoil the Mercedes party and make it 10 from 10? David Coulthard, Alain Prost and Susie Wolff provide commentary and analysis. Prod Manager: Deborah Creaven; Ed: Mark Wilkin.

Steve Jones presents highlights of Qualifying for the Brazilian Grand Prix, the penultimate round of the 2016 Formula 1 season. Interlagos in Sao Paulo has been the site of some crucial races in the past and this year looks to be no exception as the intense battle between Mercedes teammates Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg approaches its dramatic climax. Back-to-back wins for Hamilton in the United States and Mexico mean that the rivals head to Brazil with Rosberg's lead reduced to 19 points with 50 remaining. The track packs in plenty of drama and overtaking is difficult, so qualifying is crucial. It was Rosberg who took pole position here in 2015 and went on to win the race ahead of Hamilton, who had already secured his third World Title. However, it is one of the few wins missing from Hamilton's CV and he will be need to beat his teammate to keep his Championship hopes alive.
Steve Jones presents highlights of the Brazilian Grand Prix from Sao Paulo, the penultimate race in the 2016 Formula 1 season which still could have one more twist in the tale. Interlagos has been the setting for many title deciders over the past decade and this year is no exception as Mercedes rivals Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg continue their intense battle for the biggest prize in motor racing. Championship leader Rosberg has seen his lead reduced to 19 points with 50 remaining following back-to-back victories in the United States and Mexico for a resurgent Hamilton. However, Hamilton has never won in Brazil and it was Rosberg who took victory last year, winning from start to finish ahead of his team mate, who had already secured his third title. Racing at Interlagos often produces drama and Hamilton will be looking to secure his ninth win of the season, while hoping his teammate has a below par race to keep his dreams of winning a fourth World Title alive.
Steve Jones, David Coulthard and Mark Webber join the triumphant Mercedes team, including drivers Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton, plus team boss Toto Wolff, at their headquarters in Brackley for a look back at the highs and lows of an enthralling 2016 Formula 1 season. Mercedes have dominated the sport since the introduction of turbocharged hybrid engines in 2014, and this year was no exception as Rosberg battled it out with Hamilton for the most prestigious prize in motorsport. The duo's rivalry once again boiled over, at times to the dismay of the Mercedes management team and after 20 races it all came down to the final five laps of the season. Hamilton recovered from a 43-point deficit at one stage, but mechanical issues returned to haunt him in Malaysia and he was forced to retire when his engine caught fire.
