Changes in the Track:

The Jeddah Corniche Circuit (JCC) in Saudi Arabia has undergone major changes to improve safety and excitement for drivers in the upcoming Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. After feedback from drivers and consultation with the FIA and F1, adjustments were made to reduce speeds at high-speed turns, widen the circuit in places, add kerbs and rumble lines, and push back walls for better visibility. The changes aim to create a thrilling yet safe race, making the JCC an even more exciting venue for F1 racing. With the 2023 Grand Prix set to be a spectacle like no other, F1 fans can’t wait to see who will come out on top.

The 2022 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix

Following Ferrari’s 1-2 finish at the season-opening race in Bahrain, the 2022 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix was the second event of the campaign. Red Bull, who faced mechanical issues and failed to score points in Bahrain, dominated the qualifying round with Sergio Perez clinching his first pole position in F1.

On race day, Perez’s teammate Max Verstappen battled Charles Leclerc of Scuderia Ferrari for the majority of the latter stages of the race. Verstappen emerged victorious, securing first place, while Leclerc settled for second just 0.5 sec behind and Carlos Sainz finished third.
