Posted: 27 March 2022 7:05 pm

The Formula 1 show rolls on to Saudi Arabia for round 2 of this fascinating season with so many things to watch out for.

In an exciting start to the season last week it was Ferrari who went 1-2 in a result that reflected the positive practice form shown by the team. The Bahrain Grand Prix saw a Leclerc/Sainz team take the quinella with Lewis Hamilton a place back in third.

Aussie Daniel Riccardo had a tricky start to the season finishing his first race in 14th place. While the Red Bulls broke down late, leaving all eyes on the race in Jeddah.

When is the F1 Saudi Arabia Grand Prix?

The main race gets underway at 4am AEDT on Monday morning.

F1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix race preview

The question comes out of Bahrain about whether Ferrari's impressive start and 1-2 result is a sign of things to come for the rest of the season. Or if it was a case of the venue suiting their raw speed and Red Bull/Mercedes might step up to the plate as the season moves on.

Ferrari have done this at Bahrain before, but this year does look a little different.

Saudi Arabia played host to the penultimate race last season meaning this is the second race in the last 4 to be held at the track.

What that provides is a great point of comparison, and our belief is you stick with the known form and right now that's with Ferrari.

If you're not sure who to stream with, we've got a Foxtel vs Kayo comparison so you can decide which one suits you best.
