On Your Marks.

Throughout the weekend there will be plenty of chances to see the race scars swish past you at eye-watering speeds, but Sunday is the big day so be at your seats by 4.40pm to snap all the race cars on track getting ready for the green light. The 55-lap race should take between 90-100 minutes to complete.


Bid Farewell To A Legend

Double-world champion Fernando Alonso will mark his last appearance with 312th Grand Prix start. McLaren will be giving a fitting farewell to the Spaniard after 17 years in Formula One, with the team creating a special livery on his MCL33 car for the race.
