Carlos Sainz heads to Saudi Arabia, the fastest urban circuit in the world

Jeddah Corniche Circuit (6,174 meters, 27 corners, in the calendar since 2021)

  • Carlos Sainz will race this weekend in the second longest track in the calendar and the fastest urban circuit in the world, with average speeds over 250kph in Qualifying.
  • The Spaniard faces this Grand Prix convinced that his Ferrari SF-23 will be more competitive than in Bahrain. The long straights of Jeddah should suit it and the track surface is less abrassive on tyres.
  • One of the challenges for this weekend is the high chance of a Safety-Car, a key factor in the race strategy.
