The world’s fastest F1 street track for Saudi Arabian GP

F1 has released the Jeddah street track layout, which will host the inaugural Saudi Arabian GP later this year on December 5. The 6.125km long circuit is the fastest street track in F1 history, with an average speed of over 250kph predicted in simulations.

 

  • Jeddah street track’s length is 6.125km
  • Features 27 corners
  • The predicted average speed, 250kph.

The circuit will feature 27 corners, the greatest of any event on the 2021 F1 calendar, including three DRS zones. Although many corners will likely be held flat, so will appear more like straights for the drivers.

At 6.125km in length, Jeddah will be the second-longest course on this year’s race calendar, behind Spa-Francorchamps at 7km.

The sport’s management says the layout, planned in collaboration with famed circuit designers Tilke, will allow for more overtaking possibilities and wheel-to-wheel racing than is typically observed at other street circuit events. F1 has published an onboard video simulation of the circuit, established around 12km north of the Jeddah city centre.

“It’s always very exciting to release the details of a new circuit and the Saudi Arabia street circuit is no exception,” F1 motorsport director Ross Brawn said. “We have worked very closely with the team at Tilke and with the promoter to ensure we have a track that provides exciting wheel-to-wheel racing for our fans and challenges all of the drivers.

“The setting is incredible, on the Red Sea, and we can’t wait to see the cars on the track in December.” – He added.

 

2021 F1 season

 

Teams have recently winded up the pre-season testing in Bahrain, and the 2021 F1 season begins in just some days at the same venue, the Bahrain International Circuit, on March 28.
