The inaugural edition of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix will take place in December 2021, with the world’s best drivers and constructors set to do battle on the streets of Jeddah as F1 adds another night race to its schedule.

F1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix 2021

After the Saudi Automobile and Motorcycle Federation and Formula 1 reached an agreement on a long-term partnership, the series will take to the streets of Jeddah for the first time in 2021. The 10 teams and 20 drivers will do battle along the banks of the Red Sea, as Saudi Arabia’s second biggest city offers a scenic backdrop that will no doubt add to what is set to be an exciting 2021 campaign.

While the race will be a street circuit, race organisers have said that there are plans to move the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix to a purpose-built track in the future.

The Jeddah Street Circuit is set to be fast, with average speeds expected to be 252km/h, putting it second on the calendar behind only Monza. It will also feature 27 corners, the most on the F1 calendar, as drivers make their way past the Jeddah waterfront.

When is the 2021 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix on the F1 calendar?

The Saudi Arabian Grand Prix is scheduled to take place on the weekend of 3-5 December and will be the 21st race of the Formula 1 season. The first two free practice sessions will take place on 3 December with qualifying on Saturday 4 December.
