Ferrari have offered fans a glimpse behind the scenes of a dramatic race weekend in Saudi Arabia.

A video released on the team's YouTube channel tells the story of the weekend from their perspective, including an epic fight with Red Bull and race-winner Max Verstappen.

It also shows fresh footage of the dramatic drivers' meeting that left fans fearing the 2022 Saudi Arabian GP could be cancelled.

The drivers met to discuss the future of the event following a missile strike on a nearby Aramco oil depot, which resulted in acrid smoke permeating through the paddock.

The crisis talks stretched from Friday night into Saturday morning, finally coming to an end at 02:30 local time.
