F1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix 2023 live stream: How can I watch race on TV in UK today?
The second race of the Formula One season takes place today with the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.
Max Verstappen comfortably won the first race of the new campaign a fortnight ago in Bahrain, but has it all to do in Jeddah this afternoon after engine failure saw him pull out of qualifying to line up in 15th. Red Bull team-mate Sergio Perez starts on pole in Saudi for the second straight year instead.
Aston Martin's 41-year-old double world champion Fernando Alonso, who had hoped for his first pole since Germany 2012 with Ferrari, will join the Mexican on the front row after Charles Leclerc’s 10-place grid penalty for going over his allocation of electronics control units for the year already.
