Saudi Arabian GP 2023 Live F1 TV schedule

The 2023 Formula 1 season continues at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit with the Saudi Arabian GP from March 17-19. Find out where to watch the action in the UK, Australia and the USA


The 2023 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix is the second race of the Formula 1 season and is sure to be a fascinating encounter at the thrilling Jeddah Corniche Circuit. With that in mind, make sure you know where to watch the Saudi Arabian GP on TV in the UK, US and Australia.

Max Verstappen led a dominant one-two for Red Bull in Bahrain last time out but the chasing pack will be desperate to close the gap to the Dutchman at a venue known for producing drama.

Amid rumours of a mass staff exodus, the event in Saudi Arabia takes on extra significance for Ferrari, especially after Charles Leclerc‘s late retirement under the lights in Sakhir.

The pressure is also on for Mercedes, who finished nearly a minute behind Verstappen at the season-opener. Team principal Toto Wolff expects the W14 to fare better at the Jeddah street circuit, but that’s a big deficit to make up.
