Alpine F1 Team is in Saudi Arabia for the twenty-first race of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.




The Circuit


• The Jeddah Corniche Circuit is the second longest on the Formula 1 calendar and features 27 corners which is the most of any track this season.


• The track is expected to have an average speed of around 252km/h, the second highest on the calendar behind Monza and is the fastest street circuit.


• It’s also designed by Carsten Tilke, son of famous Formula 1 architect Herman.


• This weekend will be the fifth night race in Formula 1 history, after Singapore, Bahrain, Abu Dhabi and Qatar previously hosted a Grand Prix under the lights.






Driver/Team facts




• Fernando Alonso’s podium finish at the 2021 Qatar Grand Prix was the 98th in his Formula 1 career and his first since the 2014 Hungarian Grand Prix.


• With 77 points on the board, it’s the most he has scored in a FIA Formula 1 World Championship since 2014 when he was driving for Ferrari.


• Fernando has won three times in the Middle East (Bahrain in 2005, 2006 and 2010).


• Renault has powered eight winners in Middle Eastern Formula 1 races in the last 17 years.


• Esteban Ocon’s best result in the Middle East is second when the Frenchman finished on the podium for the first time in his career at the 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix.


• By finishing fifth in Qatar, it marks Esteban’s best result since the Hungarian Grand Prix in July.

 

• Both Alpine drivers made an appearance at the prestigious 2021 Ballon d’Or ceremony earlier this week, as they delivered the pristine trophy to the stage after it went for a journey in the new Alpine A110 S around the heart of Paris.


• Team Partner Castrol celebrates its 100th Grand Prix with the team this weekend and there will be a special edition livery on the A521 to mark this landmark occasion.






Alpine Academy



• After a break of more than a month, the 2021 FIA Formula 2 Championship draws towards its conclusion in Jeddah. Alpine Academy drivers Oscar Piastri and Guanyu Zhou occupy first and second in the championship standings, with Oscar holding a lead of 36 points over the UNI-Virtuosi driver.


• Fellow Alpine Academy driver Christian Lundgaard is looking to build upon his 11th place in the championship.


• Oscar took pole position and the race win during the last Formula 2 event in Sochi.


• While Zhou finished sixth in the Feature Race, the Chinese driver has scored points at every round on the Formula 2 calendar this year.


• Christian recorded a double points finish in Sochi, finishing seventh and ninth in two races. The Dane will be looking to get back to his best in Jeddah.
