Formula 1 and Saudi Arabia are excited to release the details of the Jeddah Street Circuit that will be the host
of the inaugural Formula 1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix 2021.
The circuit has been designed with close collaboration with Tilke GmbH & Co. KG and the Formula 1
Motorsport team under Ross Brawn to ensure exciting racing for our fans and the drivers. Located in the
Corniche area on the Red Sea, approximately 12km geographically north of Jeddah’s centre, the circuit will
be 6.175km long, the second longest on the Formula 1 calendar, after Spa Francorchamps at 7.004km.
The circuit will have 27 corners and has the potential for 3 DRS detections zones, increasing the ability to
overtake and close-up on cars in front. The average speeds are estimated, in simulation, to be around 250
km/h and the fast-flowing layout with high speed esses and chicanes, as well as long full throttle sections,
will make it the fastest street circuit in Formula 1 as well as one of the fastest circuits on the Formula 1
calendar, with Monza the fastest at 264.4 km/h.
Ross Brawn, Formula 1 Managing Director Motorsport, said:
“It’s always very exciting to release the details of a new circuit and the Saudi Arabia Street Circuit is no
exception. 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 design
brings out the best of a modern street circuit but also has fast paced free flowing areas that will create fast
speeds and overtaking opportunities. The setting is incredible, on the Red Sea, and we can’t wait to see the
cars on the track in December.”
