Nine years away from the Formula One calendar, F1 action returns to Istanbul this weekend with a race that could see Lewis Hamilton clinch his seventh drivers' championship - read on for full details of how to get a Turkey Grand Prix live stream, no matter where in the world you are.

With the constructors championship sealed by Mercedes for a record seventh successive time last time out at Imola, Hamilton could make it another weekend for the Silver Arrows by finishing ahead of teammate Valterri Bottas on Sunday.

Bottas in turn must outscore Hamilton by eight points in order to extend the title race for another week.

Designed by iconic track architect Hermann Tilke, Istanbul Park had been a popular circuit among drivers when it first appeared on the F1 schedule back in 2005 and now returns largely thanks to scheduling issues surrounding the coronavirus.

The track's key feature is its steep downhill first turn nicknamed the Turkish Corkscrew, because of its similarity to the famous turn at Laguna Seca, with the circuit's variety of high-speed corners likely to be one of the most demanding for tyres this season.
