Where to watch & stream Saudi Arabian Grand Prix 2023

The Saudi Arabian Grand Prix is a relative newcomer to the Formula 1 calendar, having its inaugural round in 2021. There are plans for a new, purpose-built circuit to be constructed, but the event is staying at Jeddah for the time being.

Just like Bahrain, the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix is run at night time. The layout of the track has stayed the same in this time, although some corners are being opened up to improve visibility around the tight street circuit.

When it comes to the most successful drivers in Saudi Arabia, Sir Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen have one victory each.

Hamilton won the first race in 2021 to keep his title hopes alive, while Verstappen won his first race of 2022 in Jeddah.
