New cars. New rules. New driver line-ups. And potentially an all-new pecking order, with all-new rivalries. Formula 1 is back this weekend - and it all starts with a Bahrain GP where simply anything could happen.

Three months after an epic 2021 season ended in hugely-controversial circumstances as Max Verstappen ousted Lewis Hamilton for the title, the sport's grid of star drivers and teams are gearing up for the first of a planned 23 race weekends this year, all live on Sky Sports F1.

Charles Leclerc will line up on pole ahead of Max Verstappen for today's race, with Lewis Hamilton fifth for Mercedes.

A new era starts here. F1, at long last, is back.
