The last ma­jor shuf­fle in the For­mula 1 driver mar­ket was com­pleted last week, with Valt­teri Bot­tas mov­ing to Mercedes. Felipe Massa will come out of re­tire­ment (with­out hav­ing ac­tu­ally missed a grand prix, or even a test!), and Lance Stroll will take up the seat next to him at Wil­liams. Now, then, is the per­fect time to get up to speed with what the Cana­dian has to of­fer – so why not re­live how he won last year’s FIA F3 Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship in the sea­son re­view? (Mo­tors TV, Wed­nes­day 1035-1445hrs).

Mo­tors TV also has the highs and lows of the 2016 FIA World En­durance Cham­pi­onship, in which Porsche made it back-to-back driv­ers’ and con­struc­tors’ ti­tles, with a full re­cap of Audi’s fi­nal sea­son in LMP1 and Toy­ota’s penul­ti­mate lap heart­break at Le Mans (Fri­day 0500-0600hrs).

If bright lights and big money are more your thing, then the For­mula E street rac­ers are head­ing to Las Ve­gas, as the driv­ers go headto-head with the world’s best Sim rac­ers for a share of a mil­lion-dol­lar prize (BT Sport 1, Fri­day 0530-0600hrs).

And if you want a fix of For­mula 1, Sky Sports F1 has a con­tem­po­rary of­fer­ing for you, with an­other chance to watch the Ger­man Grand Prix. De­spite even­tu­ally miss­ing out on a fourth driv­ers’ ti­tle, Lewis Hamil­ton went into the race in the mid­dle of a real pur­ple-patch – re­mind your­self of his great fight with Nico Ros­berg and the re­ju­ve­nated Red Bulls at Hock­en­heim (Satur­day 2100-2315hrs).

Hamil­ton had a real fight on his hands in Ger­many
