F1 heads straight from Bahrain to Saudi Arabia for the second round of the 2022 season.

Ferrari arrive in high spirits after starting the sport's new era in the perfect way last time out with a 1-2 finish, while both Red Bulls retired within sight of the chequered flag and Mercedes salvaged what they could from a challenging weekend.

All three teams - and their rivals - will be eager to see how the competitive order is affected at the high-speed Jeddah Corniche Circuit, which has undergone several changes since its inaugural race just three months ago.

The race will take place over 50 laps of the 6.174-kilometre Jeddah Corniche Circuit, with a maximum race time of two hours if there are any stoppages or delays.
