The 2023 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix takes place this Sunday (6:00 p.m., DAZN). Red Bull has started this season strong after Max Verstappen and Checo Pérez took first and second place in Bahrain, the first race of the F1 World Championship. The Dutchman, current world champion, will have a more difficult time repeating his victory this time. Verstappen will start in fifteenth position after a driveshaft problem (a part of the transmission) during qualifying on Saturday. His teammate, Checo Pérez, will occupy the pole on the grid, followed by Fernando Alonso. The Aston Martin driver, who took third place on the podium in Bahrain, hopes to repeat the achievement in Jeddah and show the potential that the British team’s car seems to have. Carlos Sainz will be fourth on the starting line and will be looking to reach the podium with his Ferrari after brushing against it in the first race.
