What time is the Turkish Grand Prix? How to watch on TV – practice, qualifying, race times

The Turkish Grand Prix marks another rogue turn on the F1 2020 calendar with the first race in Istanbul since 2011 to take place this weekend.


Seven Grands Prix were held in Turkey, starting with a Kimi Raikkonen victory in 2005 and ending with Sebastian Vettel atop the podium, with three Felipe Massa wins in between.

Jenson Button also recorded a win for Brawn while Lewis Hamilton also triumphed here for McLaren.

Hamilton is on the brink of claiming the title and will get his first shot at sealing the deal this weekend.

If he finishes ahead of his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas, the championship is over – he can not be caught in the F1 driver standings.

Bottas must outscore Hamilton by eight points to extend the title race for another week, but realistically, the Finn can only delay the inevitable.

The joint efforts of Hamilton and Bottas mean Mercedes are dominating the F1 constructor standings, but the midfield battle has bubbled, boiled and is threatening to spill over.

Racing Point, McLaren and Renault continue to shuffle around with each passing week – just six points between them.
