Saudi Arabia Grand Prix live stream: preview
Jeddah hosts the first street circuit race of the 2023 F1 season, which means impossibly tight corners at ludicrously high speeds and, inevitably, a car or two in the barriers. Charles Leclerc suffered late heartbreak at the Saudi Arabia GP a year ago, as Max Verstappen overtook him late on for the win, and the Ferrari man has been dealt an early blow this time around.
Leclerc will have to give up at least 10 places on the grid on Sunday, as punishment for the electronics control unit issues that forced him to retire from the season opener. It's a tough one to take, especially as the Red Bull looks superb. What could liven things up, however, is another outstanding showing from Fernando Alonso.
A podium finish for the Spaniard has given rise to the suspicion that the Aston Martin may just be the second-fastest car on the grid. The fact that Lance Stroll was able to finish ahead of George Russell despite having to drive with two broken wrists and a broken toe, having completely missed preseason testing, suggests Mercedes have got things badly wrong.
Spare a thought for Esteban Ocon too. The Frenchman needs to clear his mind after a shambolic outing in Bahrain. Having initially been handed a five-second sanction for the schoolboy error of lining up outside the lines of his grid slot, he was given a further 10 seconds for failing to serve his first penalty correctly, and then five more seconds when he was caught speeding in the pit lane... while on his way to serve the previous penalty.
Alpine put him out of his misery with an early retirement, though Ocon suffered the additional embarrassment of having to watch his teammate and frenemy Pierre Gasly surge from last to ninth in his first race for his new team.
Drivers from five different teams going out in Q1 suggests that the grid is tighter than it's been in years, so keep scrolling to find out where to get an F1 live stream anywhere in the world for the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix.
