SAUDI ARABIAN GRAND PRIX PREVIEW
JEDDAH CORNICHE CIRCUIT
3rd – 5th DECEMBER 2021




Esteban Ocon scored ten points in Qatar last time out to contribute to the team’s fantastic performance. The Frenchman is keeping focused for the final two races, beginning with a visit to the streets of Jeddah for this weekend’s Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.




How do you prepare for a new circuit?


It’s going to be interesting to head to Saudi Arabia for the first time and discover another new circuit. It’s always an exciting experience to learn a new track, which we also had in Qatar last time out. Hopefully Jeddah will be just as good for us as Losail and we can be competitive.


Preparation is the key to getting on the pace at new places. The guys have worked hard in running simulations and understanding everything as best as possible, and we had a good day on the simulator to get dialled in to the circuit so we don’t have any surprises when we get there this week.



I like these kind of crazy tracks – like Baku for example. It pushes everything to the limit, and I think that will be fun.






What do you know so far about the Jeddah Corniche Circuit?



The circuit looks quite demanding as it’s a fast street track with the walls close all the time. It’s extremely high speed with a lot of chicanes and fast corners one after the other with little room for rest.


With so many corners, it presents a challenge for the engineers to work out how best to set up the car with so many demands. It’s a long lap too, so I think it’s going to be very physical for us, and it’s important we stay focused during the race.






What was the feeling after Qatar with the team’s strong performance?



I was very happy to contribute to a very good team performance in Qatar. It was great to see Fernando on the podium too. He’s been outstanding this season and it’s a pleasure to be his team-mate and work with him for these big team results. One thing is clear, though, and that is the season is not over until the chequered flag drops in Abu Dhabi.

We’ve put ourselves in a strong position to claim fifth in the championship, but we know anything can happen in a race and we will remain ready to seize any opportunity. The team and I are feeling motivated to finish the season with double points across the next two races.
