Photos: F1 teams arrive for the first-ever Qatar GP!

Qatar will host a Grand Prix for the first time this weekend and teams have taken to social media to share their adventures so far.

Formula 1 visits a new country and venue this weekend as the sport heads to Qatar and the Losail International Circuit. A popular circuit among MotoGP fans, Losail is located just north of Qatar's capital city, Doha. Mercedes and Red Bull are set to continue their close battle for the world titles around the 5.38km track, which features 16 turns and a variety of medium- and high-speed corners. Ahead of the on-track action getting underway on Friday, teams have taken to social media to show off their surroundings.
