Jan­uary means we’re inch­ing ever-closer to the motorsport sea­son start­ing again, with the World Rally Cham­pi­onship revving back into ac­tion next week­end with the Monte Carlo Rally. Whet your ap­petite for 2017 and catch up on ev­ery­thing you missed in 2016, where Se­bastien Ogier sealed his third straight win in the event, with a high­lights pack­age from Mo­torstv (Fri­day, 2235-2340hrs).

Stick­ing with the ral­ly­ing theme, BT Sport 2 then has a col­lec­tion of clas­sic mo­ments from Rally GBS gone-by to kick off the new work­ing week (Mon­day, 1415-1515hrs).

If that still hasn’t helped stave off any of your off-sea­son with­drawal symp­toms, tune into Sky Sports F1 for an­other chance to see the 2016 Monaco Grand Prix (Satur­day, 2100- 2315hrs). It was to be Lewis Hamil­ton’s first win of 2016 – the first time he’d fin­ished ahead of team-mate Nico Ros­berg on the Monte Carlo streets in three years – af­ter a grip­ping tus­sle with Red Bull’s Daniel Ric­cia­rdo. As the wait on his new team-mate con­tin­ues, who will Hamil­ton be bat­tling for vic­tory this year?

And if you can’t make it to Autosport In­ter­na­tional Show this week­end, or you sim­ply want to re­live ev­ery mo­ment once you’ve got home, look no fur­ther than Mo­torstv. Their high­lights pro­gramme (Mon­day, 2100-2205hrs) con­denses all four days of motorsport into just one hour, with all the best stars, cars and ac­tion from Birm­ing­ham’s NEC.
