After the third and final 'Sprint' weekend of the season in Brazil, F1 returns to a normal format for the inaugural Qatar Grand Prix.

F1 drivers spent Friday getting to grips with the Losail International Circuit and they've got just one more session to prepare for the all-important qualifying hour.

Saturday's qualifying session will take place under the floodlights at 17:00 local time. This translates to 14:00 for those based in the UK, and 15:00 across most of Europe.

On Sunday, the race is also scheduled for 17:00 local time, with 57 laps ahead of the drivers.
