Turkish Grand Prix: What TV channel is it on and how can I watch F1 this weekend?


Istanbul Park stages this weekend’s 14th round of the 2020 Formula One world championship as the Turkish Grand Prix returns for the first time in nine years.

Lewis Hamilton has the chance to wrap up what will be a seventh world championship this weekend, with the current runaway leader bidding for a fourth consecutive victory and a 10th win of the season.

With Hamilton a massive 85 points clear of teammate Valtteri Bottas – the only man who can mathematically catch the Briton in this year’s title battle – the smart money is on Hamilton equalling Michael Schumacher’s record of seven world championships sooner rather than later.

Bottas can at least take the fight to the next race in two weeks’ time in Bahrain, but he will require something special this weekend on unknown territory as only three drivers have competed in F1 at Istanbul Park in the shape of Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel and Sergio Perez.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Turkish Grand Prix this weekend.
