Steve Jones presents live coverage of Qualifying for the Bahrain Grand Prix. Current world champion Lewis Hamilton will be after a repeat of last season's pole position as he vies for his third consecutive Bahrain win. However, Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg is still hoping to avenge his defeat by Hamilton in 2014 when the two drivers fought out a sensational race under the floodlights. Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, who secured a front row start last year, will also be looking to set up a third Bahrain win.
Steve Jones presents live coverage of Round 2 of the 2016 Formula 1 season from Bahrain. Defending world champion Lewis Hamilton took victory at last year's race, however it wasn't plain sailing as both he and Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg struggled with brake problems and Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen snatched a brilliant second place on the penultimate lap. The temperatures may have dropped for this spectacular night-time race in the desert, but driving under the floodlights presents a unique set of challenges for the drivers.
Steve Jones presents the best of the action from the Bahrain Grand Prix as defending world champion Lewis Hamilton attempts to earn his third consecutive win at the Sakhir circuit. Only six drivers have taken victory here and Mercedes' Nico Rosberg, who fought out a memorable battle with teammate Hamilton in 2014, will be hoping to secure his first.
Steve Jones presents highlights of qualifying for the third stop on the 2016 calendar: the Chinese Grand Prix. The race is one of Lewis Hamilton's favourites, having taken pole position here for the last two years before taking the chequered flag on both occasions. So can Hamilton make it three poles in a row? Plus, how will Ferrari respond to their dramatically mixed fortunes in Bahrain?
Steve Jones introduces highlights of the Chinese Grand Prix at the Shanghai International Circuit. China is the third race of 2016, a season which sees defending champion Lewis Hamilton targeting a fourth world title: a feat that would see him match the achievement of Formula 1 legend Alain Prost. He's already under pressure though. So far Nico Rosberg has converted two second places on the grid to wins with a combination of great starts and solid front-running. Meanwhile, four-time champion Sebastian Vettel will be hoping his Ferrari's engine will last long enough to help him challenge the Mercedes duo's supremacy. With comment and analysis from David Coulthard.
Steve Jones presents highlights of qualifying for the Russian Grand Prix as Lewis Hamilton attempts to maintain his record of being the only driver to win at the Sochi Autodrom. It was his Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg who took pole position last year with a blistering lap, but the tables are somewhat turned this year and Hamilton needs to get something going, and fast, after mechanical issues have blighted his season so far. With old-school qualifying firmly back, can Rosberg continue his startling run of success and hammer another pole into Hamilton's dreams? Meanwhile, Ricciardo is surely looking to get to the front row of the grid again after a great qualifying in Shanghai.
Steve Jones presents highlights of the Russian Grand Prix - the fourth race of the 2016 season. It is the third time Formula 1 has visited the Sochi circuit on the Black Sea coast and it has been a happy hunting ground for Mercedes' driver Lewis Hamilton who will be hoping to make it three wins out of three. But it is teammate Nico Rosberg who is smashing it in 2016: he's won all three races this season, and the last six in total. In Shanghai, following a gearbox change penalty and a mechanical failure in qualifying, Lewis fought from the back of the grid to seventh, limiting the points-damage. But he needs to keep out of trouble and start challenging Nico if he is to keep his championship hopes alive. Will the fact that he is the only driver ever to have won at the Sochi Autodrom give him confidence? And can Ferrari and Red Bull continue to challenge Mercedes' supremacy?
Lee McKenzie presents live coverage of the third practice session at the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona as the drivers get one final chance to assess the Circuit de Catalunya ahead of qualifying. Coverage continues this afternoon.
Steve Jones presents live coverage of qualifying from the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona. Nico Rosberg will be looking to continue his run of poles at the expense of his team mate Lewis Hamilton, who, after a very unfortunate qualifying in Sochi, will be pleased just to be able to have a crack at pole. This weekend traditionally marks a key stage in the development battle and the teams will be hoping their upgrades can do enough to disrupt Mercedes' domination.

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.
