The inaugural Saudi Arabian Grand Prix took place in 2021, the race joining its Middle Eastern counterparts in Bahrain and Abu Dhabi - while like those races, the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix also takes place under floodlights. What's the circuit like? Fast. Very fast. Average speeds around the Jeddah Corniche Circuit are around 250km/h - quicker than those at Silverstone, and second on the 2021 calendar only to Monza ? aka 'The Temple of Speed'. It is, quite simply, the fastest street circuit ever seen in Formula 1 - while the track also features the most corners on the calendar with 27, many of them quick, sinuous bends as the drivers wend their way along the Jeddah waterfront.
