For the third time, Formula 1 will race on the Jeddah Corniche Circuit this weekend for the 2023 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

Debuting in 2021, the circuit is a fast-flowing street track, which is the second longest on the calendar, only behind Spa.

12 months ago, Max Verstappen emerged victorious against Charles Leclerc after a game of 'DRS cat and mouse' when both tried to be the car behind at the Turn 27 detection zone.

To combat this, for 2023, the detection point has been moved to after the exit of the final turn.

Coming into the weekend, Verstappen leads the standings following his victory in Bahrain, with Leclerc already set for an engine grid penalty.

Ferrari replaced some of his power unit components on Sunday in Bahrain as a precaution, but the engine then failed during the race.

As drivers are only allowed two Control Electronics in a season, and Leclerc has already used both, he will take a third and drop 10 places on race day.

But when does the 2023 F1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix start? RacingNews365 has taken a look at all the crucial times you need.
