A new era of Formula 1 is underway as the 2022 season kicks off with the Bahrain Grand Prix.
Red Bull's Max Verstappen and Ferrari's Charles Leclerc led the way in Friday practice, while Mercedes struggled, but who will come out on top when it matters?
A third and final one-hour practice session is scheduled to start at 15:00 local time (12:00 GMT) on Saturday, but this will be staged in hotter, unrepresentative conditions compared to the evening slot for qualifying and the race.
Saturday's qualifying hour will kick off at 18:00 local time (15:00 GMT), with Sunday's race beginning at the same time and running for 57 laps.
