The circuit, known as the Jeddah Corniche, as a long section follows the coastline, measures 6.175 kilometres, making it the second longest track on the calendar after Spa-Francorchamps.
Where it differs from other street circuits is in its flowing corners without the usual 90 degree turns passing close to the walls. There are also sections that look like being very high speed, with some simulations suggesting a top speed of over 320 km/h at turn 27, with an average lap speed that could exceed 260 km/h.
Three DRS zones are planned, while other sections also offer overtaking possibilities. There are 50 laps in the race (308.750 kms).
