Formula 1 returns to the Middle East this weekend, for the first of a double-header to decide the World Championships.

Saudi Arabia hosts its first-ever Grand Prix, with Formula 1 heading to the newly constructed Jeddah Corniche Circuit.

The race is set to take place at night, running under floodlighting to increase the spectacle of what is already set to be a thrilling event at the ferociously fast, 27-corner circuit.

With thanks to our friends at WeerOnline.nl, here's the latest weather forecast for the 2021 F1 Saudi Arabia GP.

Friday

Friday's first practice session will begin at 16:30 local time and temperatures are expected to be quite hot. Maximum air temperatures should be around 32 degrees Celsius, reached in the early afternoon. These temperatures will only drop marginally as night falls, to the high 20s.

As can be expected for the region, it's expected to be sunny and dry throughout the entire weekend.

Saturday

More of the same on Saturday, with sunny and dry conditions for final practice and qualifying. The wind will pick up during the day, with speeds expected to be moderate during the afternoon. However, these will die off again as evening sets in.

Expected temperatures are the same as Friday, at about 29 degrees after darkness has set in.

Sunday

The race is set to take place at 20:30 local time and, even though the sun will have been set for several hours at that point, temperatures are still expected to be in the high 20s.

The race will be held in dry and warm conditions, cooling off to around 25 degrees by the chequered flag.
