Formula 1 heads to the Jeddah Corniche Circuit for the 2023 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix this weekend for round two of 23.
World Champion Max Verstappen dominated in Bahrain, taking a crushing 36th win of his career with Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez second and surprise package Fernando Alonso third in the Aston Martin.
It was a poor day for Ferrari as Charles Leclerc retired with a reliability issue, while Mercedes were trounced with Lewis Hamilton fifth and George Russell seventh - the team admitting that they need to change their concept.
Jeddah Corniche is a different challenge to Bahrain, with the fast, flowing streets rewarding good straight line speed and the bravest drivers.
The weekend will follow the usual format, with two practice sessions taking place on Friday. FP1 is scheduled for 13:30 UK time, with FP2 following at 17:00.
On Saturday, FP3 will be held at 13:30 UK time, ahead of qualifying at 17:00. This will determine the grid for Sunday's 50-lap Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, which starts at 17:00.
