A respectful track

The Jeddah circuit arrives with its urban identity, but with a complicated layout for the drivers. As it is a street circuit, there are almost no run-off areas in the corners. Given the complexity of the track, the barriers are very close, forcing the cars to be as careful as possible. During free practice two, Charles Leclerc was involved in an accident at turn 22, wrecking his Ferrari FS21. Each driver will have to exercise caution between turns 17 and 22, as this is where the first DRS zone is located, which has small corners and blind spots.
11:49 PM2 months ago

Jeddah Corniche Circuit

Like Qatar's Losail International Circuit, the Jeddah Corniche Circuit will make its debut in the Formula 1 World Championship. This track is new, having been inaugurated in 2021. It is an urban layout of 6.174 kilometers where on race day we will have a total of 50 laps that will define the first winner of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix in the history of the category. There will be three DRS zones that will make overtaking possible.
