Formula 1 returns to the fastest street circuit on the calendar this week for the Saudi Arabian GP, with the thrilling layout bound to ensure drama that will take your breath away.

After reigning world champion Max Verstappen made a strong start to his title defence in Bahrain, the rest of the field are looking to hit back in Jeddah.

Ferrari are confident set-up changes will unlock more performance at a circuit that should suit them, while all eyes will be on Aston Martin and Fernando Alonso to see if their dramatic ascent to the front of the grid can be maintained.

Verstappen is chasing a second successive win in Saudi Arabia, having come out on top in a thrilling battle for victory with Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc last year, which displayed the thrilling potential for wheel-to-wheel racing at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit.

Mercedes will also be looking to bounce back from a disappointing opening race, with all eyes on Lewis Hamilton following his apparent criticism of the team following their Bahrain struggles.
