Formula 1 heads to another new country and venue this weekend with the inaugural Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

Both title fights remain wide open, with Max Verstappen holding an eight-point lead over Lewis Hamilton in the Drivers' Championship, and Mercedes sitting five points clear of Red Bull in the Constructors' standings.

Drivers will face an ultra-fast challenge in the form of the all-new Jeddah Corniche Circuit, which features long straights and sweeping bends. Given the nature of the track, Red Bull have labelled Mercedes as favourites.

The event follows the traditional format, with two practice sessions on Friday, before third practice and qualifying on Saturday. The 50-lap Grand Prix will then be held on Sunday evening at 20:30 local time (17:30 UK time).

RacingNews365.com will be on hand to cover all of the action and you can find our live blog here. We will also have exclusive interviews, news and analysis throughout the entire weekend in Saudi Arabia.
