The New Jeddah Track Will Be The Fastest F1 Street Circuit Ever

It’s been a mystery circuit for a while now, but F1 has finally revealed what the new Jeddah track for the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix will look like. It’s the longest circuit on the calendar and the fastest street circuit F1 has ever seen.

The track itself is 6,175 meters long, with the width ranging from 10 to 15 meters. It’s compiled of a series of tight corners – 27 turns to be exact – and has plenty of long straights.

An average speed on a single lap is 250 km/h, which is fast, like really fast.

The race itself will be held on December 5 2021.

What are your thoughts on this first look for the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix? Let us know in the comments below.

  • Not gonna watch a GP that takes place in a place like Saudi Arabia. Not even if the WDC is not yet settled

    • Steven Bremer says:

      If you are speaking from the standpoint of Human Rights how is Saudi Arabia any worse than Chine, Russia, Bahrain, or Azerbaijan. Do you not watch those races either?

  • James Macdonald says:

    So stunningly wasteful, to put so much effort and resource into designing and building a street circuit only for two years, before moving to a permanent facility for 2023. I’m very tired of seafront street circuits, and while it looks like it’ll maybe offer something reasonably interesting from a driving point of view, the lack of buildings and scenery around the Corniche gives me worrying Valencia vibes. On top of that, I’m not thrilled to see Saudi Arabia join the ever-growing list of countries sportswashing their records through F1. Not a fan of this development.
