The race itself is set to begin at 2pm, with coverage beginning on Sky Sports F1 at 12.30pm.

While you may only be interested in tuning in for the race itself, the coverage beforehand can often lead to some fascinating and funny moments.

Charles Leclerc is set to start in pole position in Sunday’s Grand Prix in Barcelona after an excellent performance in Saturday’s qualifier.

However, Max Verstappen goes into the race as the bookies’ favourite, with the Red Bull driver having won every race he finished so far this season.

He did struggle with power in the qualifier though, and with hot weather expected, he might end up in trouble. Red Bull’s Christian Horner said that the team would be working on the car up until the beginning of the race, knowing that a win in Barcelona would be huge.
