    Vuelta virtual al circuito de Jeddah :



    Ubicado en la urbanización costera de Corniche de Jeddah, aproximadamente a 12 km al norte del centro de la ciudad, el circuito bordea el Mar Rojo y rodea una laguna, y con tres posibles zonas de DRS y una hora de inicio nocturna, debería producir carreras espectaculares bajo los focos.

    El recorrido de 6.175m., y entre 10 y 15 metros de anchura, lo convertirá en el segundo circuito más largo del calendario de F1 después de Spa-Francorchamps en Bélgica, y en el circuito urbano más rápido del campeonato. Las velocidades medias alrededor del circuito de Jeddah Corniche están programadas para ser de unos 250 km/h, más rápidas que las de Silverstone, y en segundo lugar en el calendario de 2021 solo después de Monza, también conocido como "El templo de la velocidad".

    El carácter de la pista recuerda al circuito urbano de Bakú, y en particular, a su rápido sector final, salvo que la pista saudí proporciona seis kilómetros completos. También recuerda a Zandvoort en Holanda, ya que la costa y playa están aún más cerca, con la posibilidad de arena en pista según el viento, y como en Zandvoort, la horquilla a izquierdas de la aquí curva trece, tiene un peralte de 12º, lo justo para recordar a la de Holanda.

    La parte trasera serpenteante del circuito no cuenta con una zona de frenado durante más de 30 segundos antes de llegar a la horquilla final (curva veintisiete), así que se espera que los frenos en frío proporcionen un desafío adicional a los pilotos y equipos.

    Con la falta de escapatorias del circuito, la cercanía de los muros, la naturaleza ciega de sus muchas curvas y el hecho de que la carrera sea de noche, dan alicientes para que Jeddah pueda proporcionar fuertes emociones, aunque aún hay algunos factores fundamentales y que aún desconocidos:
    Uno, el tipo de asfalto que se encontrarán los coches, aunque si Pirelli ha seleccionado la gama media de compuestos (C2-C3-C4), garantiza que no será muy abrasivo.
    Dos, los pianos. Tenemos reciente lo que unos pianos diseñados para el motociclismo les puede hacer a los coches y las ruedas, aunque siendo recién hechos exprofeso para este tipo de competición, no se espera que sean demasiado agresivos.

    Desarrollado en estrecha colaboración entre Tilke GmbH & Co. KG (Oh!, sorpresa!) y el equipo de Fórmula 1 Motorsport liderado por Ross Brawn, el circuito es atípico de muchos circuitos urbanos, ya que utiliza las carreteras existentes tanto como sea posible, pero sigue siendo de carácter fluido.

    Debido a su ubicación costera, el clima en Jeddah no solo es cálido sino también húmedo, similar a las condiciones que los equipos y los pilotos solían enfrentar en Sepang en Malasia, algo que no es especialmente agradable para los pilotos.

    Pues nada, ya estamos en el penúltimo gran premio con el campeonato más que apretado y estrenando circuito. A ver si Jeddah no decepciona y nos ofrece una carrera emocionante. Lo que parece seguro es que será rápida.

    Muchas gracias por el hilo, McH.

    Agarre, agarre y agarre.

    Da la impresión de ser una pista peligrosísima, curvas ciegas, accidentes por alcance

    Más que de SC en SC creemos que iremos de bandera roja en bandera roja, me da que vamos a ver una especie de Indy 500, donde la primera hora habrá que sobrevivir y recoger al final el preciado botín.
    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    Impresiones de los equipos antes del GP:



    Saudi Arabian GP: Preview - AlphaTauri

    Pierre Gasly and Yuki Tsunoda reflect on the Qatar Grand Prix whilst looking ahead to this weekend's inaugural Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.


    Pierre Gasly: "In overall terms, the last triple-header went very well for us, with strong Qualifying performances; fifth in Mexico, fourth in Brazil and Qatar. We also had good races, apart from the Sunday in Qatar, when the car did not go well, destroying the tyres very quickly. Of course, with the team we have now studied the reasons for that in the hope it won't repeat itself.

    Unfortunately, in the Championship the position is more complicated, as Alpine had a good weekend in Qatar. It was great to be on the front row again, the first time since I raced in Super Formula in Japan in 2017, and being there alongside Lewis was very cool. I hope there will be more of those moments in the future. Even though I was there slightly by default, we have come close a few times this year and it was a good experience. I got a taste for it!


    "Judging from what I saw on the simulator, Saudi will be extremely quick, with a large number of very high-speed corners, some of them blind. I think it's going to be very complicated from a driving point of view and there will be the extra challenge of the track surface being completely new. No cars have ever raced on it, there will be no rubber down and probably some oil will still be coming out of the tarmac, which is what normally happens at a new circuit.

    So, we are looking at a street circuit with quite low grip, which is a new challenge as no one has any data from the track. But for our part, we showed in Qatar that we can adapt fairly quickly to a new situation, running near the front immediately from the Friday. However, we will have to work hard to be quick over a single lap and also a long distance, to find the right compromise for both Saturday and Sunday. Another thing that is clear from the simulator is that the speeds are very high, but the walls are very close, so it should be impressive from the cockpit and a nice challenge, which we must prepare as well as possible for."


    Yuki Tsunoda: "That last triple header was good for my confidence in the car. I improved a lot and that could be seen from my pace, which was better than at previous races. That was all positive. In Mexico, I had an engine penalty, then an accident on the first lap and Brazil was tough with the lack of practice because of Sprint Qualifying, I believe I could have done better. Qatar went well up until the race and I had a strong performance in Qualifying. So, there are some good points and some bad ones from the last three races.

    "Since Qatar, I have spent a day karting. It's always good to do something different, driving something that's not a Formula 1 car. You can learn from it and get interesting feedback that can be useful to help you improve in some areas. Alex (Albon) was also there, so we had a good fun karting session together. It's also physically demanding, using different muscles to those you need in an F1 car, making it also useful from the training point of view. Apart from that, I spent some time in the simulator learning the new Saudi track.

    It's really fast and that means confidence in the car will be an important factor, because the run-off areas are not so big. It will be important for me to do a good job of building up speed during the free practice sessions. At least I am in the same situation as the other drivers, as this circuit will be completely new to everyone, just like Qatar."

    Saudi Arabian GP: Preview - Haas

    Uralkali Haas F1 Team will add another venue to its experience card with the Jeddah Corniche Circuit hosting Formula 1's maiden Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, Round 21 of the 2021 season.


    Saudi Arabia's inaugural grand prix will take place on the Jeddah Corniche, adjacent to the shore of the Red Sea, with a lengthy street-based wall-lined course designed to provide a stern challenge for teams and drivers. Saudi Arabia will become the 34th different country, and Jeddah Corniche Circuit the 75th different venue, visited by Formula 1. As a result, everyone will be starting from scratch in Jeddah, with no prior experience, though teams are well-versed in getting to grips with new locations in recent seasons.


    The Jeddah Corniche Circuit will feature 27 turns, the most on the current calendar, and stretch out across 6.175km. That includes the 180-degree banked turn 13, at the far end of the circuit, as well as a section of track that takes drivers between the sea and a lagoon. That makes it the second-longest track on the 2021 schedule, behind only Belgium's Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps.


    Jeddah is also set to be the fastest street-based course on the calendar, with several lengthy full-throttle sections and high-speed curves leading to projections of an average lap speed, in qualifying trim, of 250km/h. The length of the full-throttle segments means there will be three DRS zones, aiding the prospect of overtaking, with the circuit having been specially designed for Formula 1.


    That makes Jeddah an unconventional street circuit while the decision to hold the event at night means it joins Bahrain, Qatar and upcoming finale Abu Dhabi in taking place beneath floodlights in 2021.


    The penultimate race of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship brings us to the coastal resort of Jeddah, for the inaugural Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

    It's a track that boasts speeds of 252km/h - making it the fastest street circuit ever seen in the sport - as well as featuring a record-breaking 27 corners. What's your assessment of the track and what are your expectations going into the race?

    Guenther Steiner: "I think it's one of those things where a few years ago when you thought we would go to Jeddah with such an exciting race track it would be something you wouldn't believe. I've seen the track on paper and in my opinion, it looks amazing and something completely new. If you always think more or better cannot be done, we are proven wrong once again. Our expectations - I don't really know as I haven't seen enough of it - so we'll get to them once we've done a few laps."


    It's the second consecutive new addition to the calendar, and the first-ever event in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. As Formula 1 visits new territories, what would you like spectators to take away from the sport, especially younger fans?

    GS: "I would like that they take away the fact it is a global sport, there are no limits - we are open to working with people who want to showcase their country that wants to open up to the world. I think the sport brings a lot to the country and the sport takes a lot from the country. We are always finding new territories where there is still a big demand for the sport, especially with young people."


    The penultimate race of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship brings us to the coastal resort of Jeddah, for the inaugural Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

    Organizers have said average speeds around the circuit are set to be 250km/h - making it the fastest street circuit ever seen in the sport.
    Can you give us your thoughts on tackling this new and exciting challenge?

    Nikita Mazepin: "Reading this, it seems like a very tough circuit! I think we will need to get ready with our necks after a long season, I feel that my body has really adapted to this car so I'm looking forward to seeing what the track holds for us."


    Another unique element of the Jeddah Corniche Circuit is that it will feature a record-breaking 27 corners. With many fast, sweeping bends compared to traditional 90-degrees corners, which does your style of racing prefer and do you think it will be a test on tires?

    NM: "It depends on what the tarmac is like to decide on tires, but it will be very technical and lap times will vary between different cars. I think maybe it's going to be a good weekend for us."


    With three DRS zones featuring on this street circuit, there's going to be plenty of opportunity for action and overtaking. Do you think the VF-21 can get involved in some of those battles as the season reaches its climax?

    NM: "We've seen three DRS zones this year before however it might be a new challenge with longs straights. We're quite fast on straights this year so again, it could be a good weekend."

Can you give us your thoughts on tackling this new and exciting challenge?

    Mick Schumacher: "250km/h sounds pretty fast so I'm definitely excited to see what it's going to be like driving around the circuit. Nobody has driven around the track before so to tackle it, it's important to get up to pace in FP1 and find your way around, to get the philosophy of the track right. It's always a challenge I feel to find the right approach to a new track and that's the same for everybody."

    MS: "If we get down to style, Brazil is probably the best track in terms of flow that fits to me. I don't know how Jeddah looks, I haven't seen it fully yet but it's going to be interesting finding how it feels for us. There is no real preference to me - I just enjoy driving so therefore I'm looking forward to getting out there and experiencing it for myself."


    With three DRS zones featuring on this street circuit, there's going to be plenty of opportunity for action and overtaking. Do you think the VF-21 can get involved in some of those battles as the season reaches its climax?

    MS: "Hopefully we're going to be involved in the overtaking and be in a position where we can fight. The hope is there and for sure we will try our best to get up to pace and fight with some other cars."



    https://www.pitpass.com/71422/Saudi-...P-Preview-Haas


    Saudi Arabian GP: Preview - Aston Martin

    Lance: "It's a brand-new track in Saudi Arabia, which means the early practice sessions will be crucial - and we'll be learning every lap of the weekend too. It's a good challenge - and, after finishing sixth in Qatar, we want to carry that form into the final two races of the season to end our year on a high."


    Sebastian: "The circuit looks interesting; it's very long, has plenty of corners and looks very fast. We have prepared for the track as much as we can, but there's nothing like getting laps on the board. We're aiming to score more points this weekend."


    Cognizant's Keys to the Race



    The C2, C3 and C4 tyres appear for the 12th and final time this season. But continuity counts for little initially, as the principal focus will be understanding the new circuit as quickly as possible during the sessions. That's made more complex by track evolution and sessions taking place in both evening and night conditions.




    While overtaking opportunities will only become clear later in the weekend, there are three DRS zones on the circuit at Turns 20-22, Turns 25-27 and Turns 27-1. With all three zones coming late in the lap, it's likely that the final sector will be the best place to make a move on Sunday.


    Predicting session interruptions is challenging, but new circuits tend to incur more stoppages due to unfamiliarity. The first race weekend in Baku back in 2016 had three red flags in practice and qualifying as drivers explored the limits of the then-new street track. In addition, 13 of the 20 races to date in 2021 have featured at least one Safety Car and/or Virtual Safety Car interruption.


    Unlocking the Lap
    While there has never been a representative lap of the new Saudi Arabia circuit, simulation gives an idea as to what to expect.


    The run to Turn One could be a flashpoint in the race as drivers blast along a main straight of over 500m before braking into a very tight and narrow left-right flick through Turns One and Two.


    The narrowness of the circuit is demonstrated through Turn Three's kink and the winding Turns Four through Eight, which should feature minimal braking and high speeds.


    Angle of attack and entry speeds will be crucial to Turn Nine, a sharp-angled right hander that follows immediately after the slalom to Turn Eight.


    Drivers will get right up to the wall on entry and dart left through Turn 10, avoiding running wide at the exit, which segues into Turn 11.


    It's then another high-speed run all the way to the long Turn 13 hairpin. Now on the back of the circuit, this is a continual snaking run back towards the finish line.


    Turns 15 and 16 mirror the style of Turns Nine through 11 before drivers fly towards the three DRS zones.


    A dab of brakes into Turn 22 may create opportunities for drivers willing to brake late and take a riskier outside line, but the flat-out gradual curve of Turns 25-27 offer the best chance of slipstreaming.


    The lap then ends with another hairpin before drivers go again for another relentless high-speed lap in Jeddah.

    Saudi Arabian GP: Preview - Mercedes

    Toto Wolff: Two races to go, and two Championships still to be decided. We are all excited to still be in the fight at this stage in the season, it's a privilege and a testament to our resilience when we see where we stood in the early summer. Both titles are wide open, and our mission is clear.


    Last time out we saw a faultless drive by Lewis in Qatar, commanding the race from start to finish, and a strong recovery for Valtteri before the unfortunate puncture took him out of contention.


    The car has been performing well recently and is probably in the best place it has been all season, with the drivers confident to push it to the limit. That's encouraging for the final races and gives us strong momentum to take forward.


    Jeddah is another completely new challenge, an all-new track to get to grips with and a lot of work has gone on behind the scenes to ensure we hit the ground running on Friday, because getting as much information as we can during those initial sessions will be vital.



    It's a fast street circuit with long flat-out sections and several high-speed corners, lined by barriers meaning it'll be high risk and reward. We're more motivated than ever and we expect to be in the hunt, so we are all looking forward to the debut grand prix in Saudi Arabia.


    Just a few days ago we lost Sir Frank Williams. He will be in all our thoughts this weekend and we'll try our best to deliver a performance that's worthy of his racing spirit.

    Saudi Arabian GP: Preview - Red Bull

    How do you reflect on the Qatar GP?

    Max Verstappen: It wasn't too bad and it wasn't too good! I was positively surprised by the overtaking possibilities there, the start was good and necessary of course after the penalty. We still lacked quite a bit of pace compared to Mercedes so we'll see how we get on this weekend. The track in Qatar was definitely one of my favourites, it was a lot of fun to drive.


    What are your thoughts and expectations heading to Jeddah?

    MV: I've driven the track on the simulator and it seems like a really fast track, so there's no room for error. Of course, there will always be a bit of guess work as we haven't driven on the track there yet. It's going to be interesting and I'm looking forward to the challenge. It's been fun to go to different tracks again this year.


    The next two races are very important for the Championship battle, how are you preparing for the final two races of the season?

    MV: I'm feeling calm, I know that I will always try to do the best that I can and we'll just find out where we are going to end up. Nothing has been decided yet and we are all up for the challenge, there's still a lot of racing left to do and we are going to give it our all that's for sure. It's going to be an exciting end to the season.


    You have now experienced the Jeddah track on the sim, what did you make of it?

    Sergio Perez: It looks like a really fast circuit, so I am excited to get out there and see how it feels in the car for real. I don't think I've ever driven on such a fast circuit before with so many high-speed corners, so I think it will be quite a challenge. Everyone is in the same position and hasn't had the opportunity to race there yet so practise sessions will prove to be very important to get our eye in.


    Reflecting on the fourth place in Qatar, do those points now feel very important in the context of the race for the Constructors' Championship?

    SP: Those points in Qatar and the last three races were really important in the Constructors' Championship. We've managed to close the gap to Mercedes and now it's time to go all in, we've got nothing to lose, and we will give our very best. If we manage to have two perfect races as a Team then I am sure that we are going to be able to come out on top.


    You have been in Formula One for 10 years but how does racing in this intense title fight compare to previous experiences?

    SP: It is a very unique challenge, and these final two races will epitomise that. I'm enjoying it a lot coming to the end of the season with such an important fight on our hands. I'm really looking forward to Jeddah and then Abu Dhabi, this is why you start racing, for moments like this.

    Lando Norris: "The track in Jeddah is going to be fun, it's a really fast and flowing track with close walls, which will create a unique challenge. I've been driving the circuit in the simulator to get up to speed with the layout, which is really important when arriving at a new venue. Qualifying in these cars at this circuit is going to be a very cool experience, and will set us up for a strong race on Sunday. We're going to be giving it our all right up until the chequered flag in Abu Dhabi, to finish in the best possible position in both championships."


    Daniel Ricciardo: "Coming off the back of an intense but ultimately disappointing triple-header, it's been good to take some time out of the car and reset for the final two races of the year. We don't really know what to expect in Jeddah, but we've been working hard as a team back in the UK to prepare for the event, and we head to the Middle East ready to fight. We'll be doing our best to bring home some decent points and end the season on a high."


    Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "We head back to the desert for the final two races of the 2021 season, and our first stop is another new venue at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit. With two new venues in succession, the team back at the factory has been working hard to prepare, and we've used the window between Qatar and Saudi to give the drivers time in the simulator in preparation for heading out on track this Friday.


    "Although the last triple-header didn't go our way, we're still committed to applying everything we've learned during the last race weekends and fighting for the best possible finishes we can achieve between now and the last lap in Abu Dhabi. This season has been an intense and exciting battle, but it's not over yet and we want to finish it on a high."

    Saudi Arabian GP: Preview - Pirelli

    For the first visit to the spectacular new Jeddah street circuit in Saudi Arabia, the 34th country to host a Formula 1 Grand Prix, Pirelli is bringing the three compounds in the middle of the range: the C2 as the P Zero White hard, C3 as the P Zero Yellow medium, and C4 as the P Zero Red soft: the most commonly-selected nomination this year.


    Jeddah is the second consecutive brand new circuit this year after Qatar two weeks ago, although the two tracks are completely different in terms of stress on the tyres - with Qatar being one of the most demanding circuits on the calendar for lateral forces. Jeddah is even more of a novel experience as the track has only just been completed, with very little data to rely on.


    Existing data and simulations from teams suggested the three middle compounds in the range are the best option for Jeddah and they should be well-suited to the demands of this very fast and flowing street race, run over 50 laps.


    Track Characteristics



    The track has been designed by well-known circuit architect Hermann Tilke and is located in Jeddah's Corniche area. This is the first proper street circuit since Baku in June.


    This 6.174-kilometre track - which runs alongside the coast - is the longest street circuit on the calendar (the second-longest of the entire year, after Spa) and is also set to be one of the fastest too, with an average speed of over 250kph predicted in simulations. That's only just behind Monza, well-known as the 'Temple of Speed'.


    One of the most demanding of the 27 corners is Turn 13: a left-hander featuring 12-degree banking that should place high g forces on the tyres. Jeddah has more corners than any other track on the calendar, which will keep the tyres working hard.


    Many parts of the circuit are quite narrow and unforgiving, with the walls close to the side of the track. This could lead to a reasonably high safety car probability, affecting strategy.


    Jeddah is a night race, like all the last three races of the season, with the grand prix getting underway at 20:30 local time. This means that the pattern of track temperature is different to a normal race, with temperatures dropping over the course of each session. FP1 and FP3 are held just before sunset, with only FP2 on Friday and qualifying on Saturday (both starting at 20:00) likely to be representative of the race.


    Conditions are set to be warm but humid, with the track located right along the northern coast at Jeddah. As it's never been used before, drivers can expect a slippery and 'green' track at the start of the weekend. Formula 2 and a Porsche competition are running as support events, which will help track evolution.


    Mario Isola: "Jeddah is probably the biggest unknown we face all year, as with the track being completed very close to the race. As a result, we can only rely on simulations from F1 and the teams, along with other information we've collected, to come up with our nomination.


    "This street circuit looks set to be quite different to anything else, and the high speeds with fast corners will obviously play a big part in the way that the tyres behave. Jeddah has more corners than any other track on the calendar, and one of them - Turn 13 - also has 12-degree banking, so there are plenty of different elements that will keep the tyres working hard."

    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    Martin Brundle (Sing '09)

    "Alonso has been brilliant all weekend, absolutely brilliant". "A driver not always easyto love, but very easy to admire".

    Martin Brundle (Sing '10)
