F1 Saudi Arabia race preview
The Saudi Arabian GP is only a relatively new event on the F1 calendar and has only had 2 winners.
In that short time though it has already gained a reputation as the fastest street circuit.
Verstappen is chasing a second successive win in Saudi Arabia, having won a thriller last year with Ferrari's Charles Leclerc.

Two-time world champion Fernando Alonso made an impressive start to 2023 with his new team Aston Martin.
He finished third in Bahrain and will look to continue his resurgence at Saudi Arabia.
Meanwhile high profile drivers like Lewis Hamilton and Leclerc will look for better performances in Saudi Arabia after a lacklustre start in Bahrain.
Red Bull went 1-2 in Bahrain and even though that was only the first race of the season, it looks like Verstappen and the team could dominate 2023 like they did 2022.
We think Verstappen will take the checkered flag again in the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.
