The 2023 Formula 1 season continues this weekend in Saudi Arabia, with Jeddah hosting the second round of the campaign.
Red Bull enters the weekend looking to continue its ominous form over the rest of the field, as it eased to a 1-2 finish last time out in Bahrain.
All eyes will be on Aston Martin as it took an impressive podium through Fernando Alonso on race day, while Lance Stroll battled injury to finish sixth.
The 2023 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix is the third time that the series has ventured to Jeddah, with the previous two editions creating memorable race weekends.
Fans will be hoping that the third time around, another exciting grand prix can be conjured and kick-start the 2023 championship fight into life.
On-track running will take place quite late in local time, with Sunday’s race being a night-time event.
