Architect behind Saudi Arabia’s new Formula One track believes outcome of inaugural race is ‘IMPOSSIBLE to call’ as Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton gear up for battle on the FASTEST street course in the calendar

The mastermind behind Saudi Arabia’s brand new Formula One circuit believes it is ‘impossible to call’ the outcome of the inaugural Jeddah Grand Prix as Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton get set for the penultimate race of the season. The penultimate race takes place on December 5 on a street circuit designed by architect Carsten Tilke, who is unable to call the outcome of Saudi Arabia’s inaugural Grand Prix. Jeddah is not heavily surrounded by buildings, as is the case for other street circuits such as Monaco, Singapore and Baku. Tilke added that this new course bears no close comparison to other street venues. ‘It’s really fast, it doesn’t have all the buildings inside like a street circuit when you think of Baku or Monaco or Singapore. Tilke is the son of German racing driver and famed race track designer Hermann Tilke.
