We are back in the Middle East for the second edition of the Qatar Grand Prix, after a one-year break for the FIFA World Cup.
F1 has a ten year deal with the Gulf State, so you’d better get used to tuning in at the right time for this event each season! What’s more, this weekend is a sprint format, which means an earlier qualifying session than usual, as well as a sprint race on the Saturday.
Sunday sees our fourth night race of six to feature in this season’s calendar – so there are several unusual timings at this weekend’s event.
