Jake Humphrey presents live coverage from Shanghai of qualifying for tomorrow's Chinese Grand Prix.

The Red Bull-Renault driver is expected to feature strongly again this year, as is 2008 winner Lewis Hamilton. And Michael Schumacher will be relishing his return to the Shanghai track – he still holds the record for the fastest lap there.

All New Total Wipeout Ep 4/8

Saturday 17 April
5.30-6.30pm BBC ONE

Richard Hammond is back once again with another helping of Total Wipeout mayhem from the most ridiculous obstacle course in the world.

Twenty normal members of the British public, including a beekeeper and an accountant, attempt to navigate their way through four mud- and water-filled rounds, each containing obstacles and challenges more tricky than ever. But only one will be victorious and win a £10,000 prize and the coveted crown of Total Wipeout Champion.

This week some brand-new Qualifier obstacles make for some quite spectacular falls, including The Crazy Keys – a series of unstable planks precariously hanging over a swamp – and The Swing Thing, on hand to test the contestants' timing, strength and swing-ability to the limit.

From here only 12 will tackle Total Wipeout's newest addition, Crash Mountain, which serves up a healthy portion of unbelievable aerobatics and wipeouts.

Will Oxford University brainbox Amy be able to outsmart the Qualifier? Can part-time aerobics instructor Paul hot-step his way to the mother of all workouts and secure a place in The Wipeout Zone? And, when the dust finally settles, will gold-medal-winning champion athlete Geraldine be on the top step of the podium?

Amanda Byram, courtside as always, offers up her support to the competitors in the form of giggles and sniggers.
