slammed by human rights groups after Saudi Arabia race in Jeddah announced for first time on Grand Prix calendar

F1 BOSSES have been condemned by human rights groups for scheduling next year’s penultimate race of the season in Saudi Arabia. Formula One chiefs have been in discussions with the Saudi authorities over a race in the Gulf state for most of this year. “In the lead-up to a race in Jeddah, we would urge all F1 drivers, owners and teams to consider speaking out about the human rights situation in the country. While Saudi Arabia is on the provisional schedule for the first time, there is currently no Brazilain GP planned for the first time since 1972. This year’s race was cancelled because of Covid-19 but F1 is now in a dispute with the promoter of the Interlagos track on the outskirts of Sao Paulo.
