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



28. The wins for Abdulaziz Al Faisal in international races. Born in 1983, the sports car specialist is the most successful Saudi driver. Among his major wins is the 2015 Dubai 24 Hours.


Also worthy of note, Karim Ojjeh, winner of the LMP2 class in the 2011 Le Mans 24 Hours and Reema Juffali the first Saudi woman racing driver, currently competing in the UK GB3 series, where she twice qualified on pole last season.

The 29-year-old has been announced as a race ambassador for this weekend’s inaugural event in Saudi Arabia.




27. The number of corners on the Jeddah circuit, the most of any track on the calendar and the second highest ever after the Nürburgring Nordschleife that has over 150. In third place was the old 8 kilometre-long Interlagos with 26.



13. The position of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the list of largest countries in the world. The state was established in 1932, covers an area of over two million square kilometres and the population is just over 34 million.





5. Arab language nations, including Saudi Arabia, that have hosted a Formula 1 Grand Prix. Topping the list is Bahrain on 18 (17 Bahrain GPs and the 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix). Abu Dhabi is next on 12, with Morocco, the very first race in 1958, and Qatar, on one each.




3. The number of Asia Cup football tournaments won by Saudi Arabia, in 1984, 1988 and 1996. Football is the national game, by number of participants and fans.


The “Falcons” as the national team is known, have a respectable record in the World Cup, having reached the final stages five times (1994, 1998, 2002, 2006, 2018). In 1994 Saudi Arabia got through to the last 16.
