The second round of the 2024 F1 season comes from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, with the F1 circus heading straight there from Bahrain last weekend where Max Verstappen got off to the perfect start with victory for Red Bull.

While Pirelli opted for the hardest compounds in their range for the abrasive Bahrain international Circuit, they have gone one step softer for Jeddah, bringing the C2, C3 and C4 tyres for the drivers to use as they tackle this incredibly fast street track.

The Jeddah Corniche Circuit is second only to Monza in terms of speeds reached, and thus is a completely different challenge to Bahrain. It is also expected to be a one-stop race, which will also influence which tyres the drivers opt for throughout practice.
