Formula 1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix 2024

When does the 2024 F1 Saudi Arabian GP start?

The Jeddah Corniche Circuit plays host to the second round of the 2024 F1 season this weekend. Discover the race start time on Saturday in this comprehensive guide.

Last year, the race in Jeddah saw a Red Bull tussle, with reigning World Champion Max Verstappen starting from outside the top 10. His teammate, Sergio Perez, won the race with a five-second gap ahead of Verstappen.

Surprisingly, Fernando Alonso managed to finish third and stood on the podium and had a post-race penalty overturned. However, in Bahrain, we saw that Aston Martin are not as fast as last year. Who will take victory in Saudi Arabia?

The 50-lap race will start at 20:00 local time (17:00 UK time), with warm conditions expected throughout.
