Max Verstappen comfortably won the first Grand Prix, in Bahrain a fortnight ago, but it’s all to be done in Jeddah after an engine failure forced him out of qualifying, crossing the line in 15th. Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez starts on pole.
Aston Martin’s 41-year-old double world champion Fernando Alonso, who is hoping for his first pole since Germany 2012 with Ferrari, will join the Mexican on the front row. An already record-breaking eighth F1 crown this year looks unlikely for Lewis Hamilton in Mercedes, who starts in P8.
