Jeddah weather forecast: What to expect at the F1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix

The 2021 Saudi Arabian GP is due to be run between December 5-7 at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit, and the latest weather forecast shows high temperatures on Sunday

-

The Jeddah Corniche Circuit is a street circuit located within the costal resort area of the Saudi Arabian city of Jeddah, but what does the weather forecast show for the 2021 Formula 1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix?

After the Qatar GP, F1 title rivals Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen are separated by just eight points in the Drivers’ Championship, as the Mercedes driver has reeled his Red Bull rival in with two successive wins. 

The Jeddah Corniche Circuit is 6.174km long and hosts a series of fast and very fast corners, with average speeds around 250km/h, which makes it only second to Monza on the F1 calendar. It also has the most corners of any track in 2021 with 27.

Friday, Practice 1 and Practice 2

Saturday, Practice 3 and Qualifying

The picture for Saturday’s practice session and qualifying should be almost identical to Friday in terms of wind and temperature conditions.
