Formula 1 heads off to Qatar this weekend, with the country's inaugural Grand Prix taking place at a staple of the MotoGP calendar, the Losail International Circuit.
The night race in the desert will be held at the fast and flowing venue with Max Verstappen arriving there 14 points ahead of Lewis Hamilton in the Drivers' Championship.
With Hamilton closing up seven points in the standings after a dominant drive in Brazil, all the attention now turns to the third race of the final triple-header of the season, as F1 gears up for the unknown at Losail.
This weekend is also a resumption of the usual weekend format, with two practice sessions as normal on Friday, before third practice and qualifying on Saturday.
The 57-lap Grand Prix will then be held on Sunday afternoon at 17:00 local time.
