For the fifth time, the Formula 1 season will begin with the Bahrain Grand Prix as 2023 kicks off.
Following the pre-season test last week in Sakhir, Red Bull and Max Verstappen have firmly cemented themselves as the 'ones to beat' with Charles Leclerc and Lewis Hamilton a little behind in their Ferrari and Mercedes machines, respectively.
2023 will be the longest-ever F1 season with 23 Grands Prix and six sprint races and feature the series' first race not to be held on a Sunday since the 1985 South African Grand Prix when lights go out in Las Vegas in November during Saturday night primetime.
RacingNews365 will be bringing you all the action as it happens and immediate reaction from the paddock as the new season begins.
Here's where to watch the 2023 Bahrain Grand Prix live on TV in the UK, USA, and Australia, with lights out set for 18:00pm local time.
Australia is eight hours ahead of Bahrain, the UK is three hours behind, with the United States eight hours (Eastern Time) and 11 hours (Pacific Time) behind.
