Formula 1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix 2021
First Grand Prix

There are plans for a purpose-built circuit in the future, but the inaugural Saudi Arabian Grand Prix will be run on a street track. The final layout has not been decided, but organisers say it will feature a good flow of long straights and tight corners, with no equivalent track on the calendar.
Jeddah is a picturesque city of around 3.5 million people, situated on the beautiful Red Sea coast. It'street track is set to be situated on the Corniche - a 30 km coastal resort area of the city. As such, the circuit is expected to hug the seafront, providing a stunning natural backdrop for the action.
Organisers hope that the race will take place at night under lights, adding another layer of atmosphere. They expect the city to come alive with excitement for the race, with everyone coming together to celebrate a festival of F1.
