After the great success of Max Verstappen in Bahrain during the first race of the year, the Formula 1 season marks a stop in Jeddah, on Sunday 19 March, on the occasion of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. The Dutchman will not have it easy as he will start 15th due to a mechanical problem in qualifying. Will he still be able to win like last year?

It is his teammate at Red Bull, Sergio Perez, who will start from pole position for the second time in his career. It was already in Jeddah that he started at the front last season. It will have to contain the assault from Fernando Alonso’s Aston Martin, alongside him on the front line. But also George Russell, third on the starting grid. Despite his second time in qualifying, Charles Leclerc will finish in 12th position due to a ten-place penalty for a gearbox change.
