Formula 1, Round 2: The 2024 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix

Publish Date: 03/08/2024
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster
The 2023 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix winner, Sergio Perez

As the season kicked off in Bahrain, we’re already gearing up for the next thrill ride at the Jeddah street circuit in Saudi Arabia. With the lights set to shine bright, let’s dive into some exciting topics heading to Jeddah!

The Front-Running Picture:

This season brings a whopping 24 races, each with its own unique challenges. The teams must master the art of adapting to their cars to suit each of the circuit’s quirks. Recent history showed us that the Red Bull shined tremendously in race conditions during the last race in Bahrain, but as Carlos Sainz points out, the tides could turn in Jeddah. It’s a chance to see which teams have found their stride and which ones are still finding their footing and if practice is anything to go by, qualifying is going to be extremely close with Aston Martin and Ferrari chasing the Red Bulls to fight for pole.

Can Perez Replicate 2023?

Remember Sergio Perez’s stunning performance in Saudi Arabia last year? It was a masterclass in street circuit dominance. As we head back to Jeddah, all eyes are on Perez to see if lightning can strike twice. With the memories of his 2023 victory fresh, he’s poised to make another splash and shake up the leaderboard unless Ferrari, Aston Martin, McLaren and Mercedes can do anything about it.

Driver Tensions at RB

Ah, the drama that Netflix is sure to be eating up! Team orders, heated radio chatter, and close on-track encounters β€” it’s all part of the Formula 1 spectacle surrounding VCARB at the moment. Will the VCARN duo of Yuki Tsunoda and Daniel Ricciardo play nice this time around, or are we in for more fireworks? Keep an eye on the RB garage for any sparks flying between the drivers.

Cooling Coming to the Force

Weather can be a game-changer in Formula 1, and Jeddah promises warmer temperatures than Bahrain. With engines needing to keep their cool under pressure, teams will be working overtime to ensure everything runs smoothly. It’s a behind-the-scenes battle that could have a big impact on race day, so don’t the chances of a safety car due to a retirement aren’t all that slim early on this season.

F1 Academy’s Season Begins

The future stars of Formula 1 are revving their engines as the F2 and F3 seasons kick off alongside the main event. With talented drivers vying for the spotlight, it’s a chance to catch a glimpse of tomorrow’s racing legends. Plus, keep an eye out for some exciting partnerships and a wildcard entry from Saudi driver Reema Juffali!

With so much action on and off the track, Jeddah promises to be a weekend to remember. Buckle up, it’s going to be a wild ride!
