STC SAUDI ARABIAN GRAND PRIX
Jeddah Corniche Circuit
3-5 December 2021






•    Jeddah is the hottest climate visited by Formula One this year, with the average high temperature in December reaching 30.7°C (87.3°F).  Fortunately, the race also has the latest start time, after sunset at 20:30 local time.



•    This is the 250th Grand Prix to take place since Red Bull claimed its first win in constructor history, when Sebastian Vettel won the 2009 Chinese GP from pole position.  A victory this weekend would be the 75th for the team.



•    Speaking of the number 75, Max coincidentally set the 75th fastest lap in Red Bull’s constructor history at the Qatar GP. It was also the 75th fastest lap for the Honda Motor Company.


•    Saudi Arabia is the largest nation on Earth without any permanent rivers, although it does contain many valley areas – known as “wadis” – in which rivers can occasionally form.

 

•    Currently under construction, the Jeddah Tower is planned to be the tallest skyscraper in the world, and the first to be in excess of one kilometre in height. The chief architect is Adrian Smith, who also designed the current tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.



•    Checo and Max have finished on the podium 21 times this year, just one short of the total scored by the team in the 2019 and 2020 seasons combined!




CELEBRATING 100 RACES WITH EXXONMOBIL IN JEDDAH



 

Celebrating our 100th race with ExxonMobil, Christian Horner comments
"The position we are in this season, fighting for both world championships, is the result of persistent hard work and dedication, not only from members of the Team but also partners like ExxonMobil.



 Reaching the milestone of 100 races together is a true celebration of the collaborative work we’ve done in partnership and I, together with the rest of the Team, look forward to the next 100."
