Formula 1 stars are about to enter the final corners of the 2019 season, and while the overall results appears to be wrapped up, there are plenty of intriguing storylines shaping up that could shape the sport for years to come.


Reigning champion Lewis Hamilton has built up a near-unassailable lead at the top of the leaderboard.

Mercedes team-mates Valtteri Bottas sits in second place but arguably the most interesting story that could define the rest of the season is the battle at Ferrari.

Hot-shot Charles Leclerc has wowed the crowds in recent weeks and applied genuine pressure on Sebastian Vettel – even overtaking the German former world champion in the points table.

Max Verstappen continues to sit among the chasing pack with a gulf between the elite and the rest, including Daniel Ricciardo who has struggled to impress due to Renault's regression this year. rounds up how you can watch all the action live on TV this weekend with full Sky Sports and Channel 4 broadcast details.
