Circuit organisers have released images of the Jeddah Corniche Circuit - dubbed as the world’s fastest street circuit.

The latest images have erased any doubts that the circuit wouldn’t be ready in time for the penultimate round of the 2021 season.

The circuit itself looks ready to go, while the infrastructure around the circuit still needs some work.

Organisers confirmed that construction of the circuit was “accomplished under the strictest health and safety conditions” and  “with millions of man-hours of work taking place on-site with no serious incidents. All work was carried out according to detailed and robust Saudi Arabian Labour Laws, guaranteeing the protection of the rights of workers on-site including the limiting of working hours in direct sunlight”.

Speaking after the Mexico City Grand Prix earlier this month, FIA race director Michael Masi always remained confident about the race going ahead, comparing the situation to F1’s first visits to Korea (2010) and India (2011).

“I’m quite confident, having been involved in Korea in 2010 which was the last one talked about, I think India was talked about, both of those went off no problems at all and I’m quite confident that Saudi will be exactly the same,” Masi said.

“Effectively if you take it back to its core element, everything track and safety-related is the core element, so from FIA perspective they’re all the critical things. Having discussed it in detail with Tilke and the promoter I’ve got no concerns in that perspective.”
