- Western Sydney
Guess the we race as one banners won't make an appearance at this race.
It's a good day to bury bad news.So it's a Night race around the streets of Jeddah next November then...
Does the race get cancelled if a woman ends up in a race seat or do they get excluded, would be a good question to ask Liberty.
Given Lewis Hamilton's love for political activism, will he boycott this event? Will we see the rainbow-livery McLarens?
Or will everyone just accept the sportswashing and gulp it down by the spoonful?
I'd love to see one team have the sheer gall to give Jamie Chadwick an FP1 seat. It won't happen though.
All of the above, plus the Yemeni national anthem on the podium, and something heavy handed about selling them Eurofighters, might just unwash the event for me.Get the W series in as a support race.

Thanks for your insight. It's interesting to read it from your side.I have read all comments here,and elsewhere. And as a Saudi myself I would like to express my thoughts and opinion if you allow me. Personally I would rather not have this race tbh. We don't have motorsport heritage, and I would like if they have focused on proper motorsport infrastructure locally and junior academics at first. Having said that, I would respectfully recommend to some of the guys here to do at least a 5 minutes fact checking, because some comments are nonsense. I'm not sure if it's sarcasm or something but anyway....
I know we don't have the best of records in terms reputations, but things are changing quickly and moving forward to a better direction. I'm certain that some will argue that it's not enough, but please consider that there's social responsibility as well as religious and cultural differences that no other nation is dealing with such a change. 70% of the population is under 30 years old, and frankly speaking a lot are trying too hard to display or prove to western countries or people that they are not closed minded or something by copying what they do and lifestyle or something. This comes from the fact some of people may get the feeling that they are getting rejected of who they are. You can get that feeling easily tbh in Europe for example.
And with it comes the feeling that this is getting more towards discrimination and racism against Saudis or middle eastern. I,m talking people to people, politics are dirty worldwide, otherwise we wouldn't have BLM, and F1 is already going to places where human rights can also be questioned.
And yes, F1 goes for money all the time. It's a global entity that exists to make profit, and as we seen this year it's barely called sustainable. So yeah, the sport that we all love to watch needs cash to survive, and like it or not, you all seen the "Aramco " boards and adds. This money could have helped F1 to stage those races we have seen by limiting their losses, who knows?
That's my opinion, I know it's not going to be popular, but I'm open to "productive criticism " without insults. Thanks.
