Formula One returns to the daytime after night racing in Singapore, although for those of us in the UK, it is the early hours of the morning for these practice sessions. If you're keen and up and about ready to watch, there'll be two ninety minute sessions followed by one hour for the drivers to get to grips with the Suzuka circuit ahead of qualifying.

Narain Karthikeyan will get behind the wheel of Liuzzi's HRT car, as he continues to prepare for the Indian GP later this month. We will see Karun Chandhok in FP1 as well.
