Jeddah Corniche Circuit is the longest and fastest street race in the calendar, with top speeds expected to exceed 250km/h. The location has given the designers the ability to create a unique track, with a focus on speed and overtaking. Players will be able to compete in-game ahead of its race debut, which could be significant in the battle for the World Championship.
 

"Our players love new circuits, and Jeddah is extra special as it makes its debut in-game before the drivers head to Saudi in December," said Paul Jeal, F1® Senior Franchise Director at Codemasters. "Jeddah has the potential to be one of the most competitive circuits on the calendar with long, fast straights and multiple overtaking sections. The studio has done an incredible job re-creating the circuit ahead of its maiden race."
