JEDDAH: The eyes of the sporting world will turn to Jeddah on Sunday as the inagural Saudi Arabian Grand Prix revs into action under the lights along Jeddah's Corniche coast.

Seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton starts the race in pole position after Saturday's qualifying session, while his world championship title rival Max Verstappen starts in third.

The Dutchman holds an eight-point advantage over the British legend in the championship standings, and could potentially seal the title in Saudi Arabia if Hamilton has a calamitous race.
