Saudi Arabia Grand Prix 2023

Sergio Perez will line up on pole position for Sunday's Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, repeating his feat from 2022.

Fernando Alonso partners Perez on the front row, continuing Aston Martin's impressive form from the 2023 season opener in Bahrain.

Some big names will have to fight their way through the traffic in Jeddah, though. Charles Leclerc starts only 12th after incurring a ten-place grid drop for excessive component usage, while early championship leader Max Verstappen lines up a lowly 15th, after a driveshaft failure ruined his qualifying session.

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

See below to find out what time the race starts wherever you are in the world.
