F1 Saudi Arabia Preview

As we come into the second round of the season, we have teams looking to improve or looking to stay on top. And with the new cars, will overtaking be aided? Will we get massive drama as we did when F1 last visited Saudi Arabia?

After Bahrain, Ferrari will be looking to extend their advantage after their 1-2 last weekend. The question is can Ferrari maintain their gap or have Mercedes found something to unlock some extra pace?

Red Bull will certainly be wanting a much better reliability this weekend after their double DNF in Bahrain. We know they have the pace but to gain ground on Ferrari they need a good weekend. Can they deliver the result they need?

After a horid weekend for McLaren in Bahrain, improvement will be on their minds,

and with Haas having shown improvement from last season, that midfield battle could prove even tighter this year.

Alpha Tauri and Alfa Romeo will be looking for consistency with good results last weekend, but with Saudi being a very twisty circuit, could we see a change in grid order?

Aston Martin once again have Nico Hulkenburg in their line-up for this weekend as Sebastian Vettel is still out. But with a disappointing result last weekend, they will hope to turn their fortunes around.

Haas with a fantastic showing at Bahrain will really want to gain some more points in the constructors and keep the consistency going, as these points may be crucial come the end of the season.

All in all, it could be a big weekend with it being only the second race of the season, teams and drivers wanting to get on top early. With the drivers being perilously close to the walls, precision will be key in the battle for coming out on top in Jeddah.
