The percentage of chance of rain for the start time is minimal, exact 4%. The relative humidity of the air is estimated at 70%, while the wind speed will not exceed 7 km/h, always blowing in the southwest direction.

Lewis Hamilton will start in pole position soon in Jeddah. The seven-time world champion took pole, benefiting from the mistake made by Max Verstappen in the capital moment of the classification, in the last corner of the last quick lap attempt in Q3. With the crash on his way to conquer the honored position in Saudi Arabia, Verstappen found himself behind Hamilton and also Valtteri Bottas and will only start in third position.
