Start time, schedule of sessions, predictions and how can I watch on TV?
The fast streets of the Jeddah Corniche Circuit are hosting its third F1 grand prix with reigning world champion Max Verstappen embroiled in fascinating duels for the lead from the previous two years at this track.
The Dutchman’s Red Bull is set to lead again for this race after claiming victory in the season opener in Bahrain.
Aston Martin are ready to save their credentials as Verstappen’s biggest threat after Charles Leclerc retired a fortnight ago when his Ferrari suffered engine failure while battling for a podium finish.
A place on the top steps is currently emerging beyond Mercedes, who have faced a start to the 2023 season that is unlikely to improve any time soon.

Saudi Arabian F1 Grand Prix Prediction
With Verstappen so dominant in Bahrain – a track he’s struggled on before – it’s hard to see a different result coming to Saudi Arabia.
Ferrari should be able to put themselves in a better position to challenge Sergio Perez for second place, Fernando Alonso’s rise to title contender probably won’t be as smooth as the last race suggested. The two Mercedes cars will finish behind the Aston Martins.
