Teams and drivers have explored the new Jeddah Corniche Circuit for the very first time during Thursday track walk ahead of the inaugural 2021 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

For all 20 drivers and their teams, the Thursday morning team track walk offered their first opportunity to get a closeup look at all 27 corners on F1’s newest street circuit. Final preparations for the track were also being concluded ahead of tomorrow’s opening day of practice.

There was also the first glimpse of this weekend’s Aston Martin Safety Car and other course vehicles, which are all wrapped in the colour of the Saudi Arabian flag to mark the kingdom’s first time hosting a grand prix.

    1. And the names of the dead construction workers.

    Can someone shed some light on why Williams (and probably all teams) is measuring the pit lane?

    1. @asleepatthewheel Maybe to get a really inch perfect reading for simulator or pit strategy or something totally different?

  4. This gives Bahrain 2004 vibes but here seems to be a bit more infrastructure
