Formula 1 – Belgian Grand Prix

Sunday 28 August
12.05-3.30pm BBC ONE

Jake Humphrey is joined by David Coulthard, Eddie Jordan and Martin Brundle as Formula 1 returns after a four-week summer break.

Defending world champion Sebastian Vettel enjoys an 85-point lead in the drivers' standings but his dominance has been curtailed by a run of three races without victory.

Former world champions Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button have all won in that time, and the trio can take heart from the fact that either McLaren or Ferrari have taken the chequered flag at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit in every race since 1999.
