Lee McKenzie introduces live coverage of the Japanese Grand Prix from the Suzuka circuit.

McLaren's Lewis Hamilton is a previous winner of this race, although his victory came at the Fuji Speedway circuit in 2007. Last year he managed a third-place finish here at Suzuka, but it was Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel who took the honours ahead of Jarno Trulli.

With Ferrari's Fernando Alonso another previous winner at this famously demanding circuit, competition will be fierce as the Formula 1 season approaches its climax.

The Grand Prix will be repeated on BBC One today at 2pm.

Commonwealth Games 2010

Live event/outside broadcastInteractive TVHigh Definition programme
Sunday 10 October
10.00am-12.00noon BBC TWO and BBC HD

Hazel Irvine introduces highlights of the women's cycling road race, which took place overnight, plus live coverage of the men's road race as Commonwealth Games coverage continues from Delhi.

The men's race takes place over a 167km course, taking in some of Delhi's famous landmarks such as India Gate. Mark Cavendish from the Isle of Man and Welsh rider Geraint Thomas both made waves in this year's Tour de France and will be looking to cap excellent seasons by capturing the Commonwealth title. Also riding will be Scotland's David Millar along with the defending champion Mathew Hayman of Australia.

There are also highlights of the women's event in which Olympic road race champion Nicole Cooke was attempting to win the Commonwealth title – no easy task in an event which favours riders who can call on the support of team-mates to help them plot their way through the race. Welsh star Cooke took bronze in Melbourne four years ago when Natalie Bates, backed by a strong Australian team, claimed gold. England also had high hopes of success in Delhi, with the likes of Emma Pooley, Lizzie Armitstead and Sharon Laws in their team.

Commentary comes from Hugh Porter and Chris Boardman.

Hazel also presents the conclusion of the archery competition – the individual recurve finals – boxing quarter-final action and England's men against South Africa in the hockey.

Commonwealth Games 2010 is simulcast on the BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel, available through Freesat 108, Freeview 50, Sky 143 and Virgin 108. Digital viewers can access more live coverage of events via BBCi on the red button and broadband.

With the swimming events now completed, attention at the SPM Aquatics Centre turns to diving. The first three medals are set to be decided as the competition gets under way.

Today's three finals include the Men's 1m springboard in which Australia's Matthew Mitcham, bronze medallist at last year's World Championships in Rome, will be among the favourites. Bob Ballard and Leon Taylor provide the commentary.

From 1pm, Michael Johnson, Denise Lewis and Colin Jackson join John for more athletics action, including:

Nine athletics titles will be decided this afternoon, but all eyes will be on Caster Semenya in the semi-finals of the women's 800m. The South African world champion has returned from an enforced year-long absence while the IAAF investigated her eligibility to compete and the talented youngster will be eager to make up for lost time.

The Caribbean's top sprinters are expected to dominate the men's and women's 200m finals, while Welshman Dai Greene is expected to add the Commonwealth title to his European 400m Hurdles gold.

Commentary comes from Steve Cram, Paul Dickenson, Jonathan Edwards, Brendan Foster and Phil Jones.
