Michael Masi has provided an update regarding the current status of the Jeddah Corniche Circuit construction.

Why it matters: There have been concerns that the track might not be built on time for the Saudi Arabian GP on December 3rd-5th.

Details:

  • Masi reveals that he has visited the venue lately.
  • The F1 race director admits that there is still plenty of work to be done.

What he had to say:

  • “I was there a couple of weeks ago and obviously there is a lot going on there, there’s a huge amount of work happening concurrently. But we, the FIA and F1 are getting daily updates about where things are at, and it is progressing very, very quickly.”
  • “So from when I was last there, yes, there is a lot to do. There is nothing to deny there, I think everyone will acknowledge there is a lot to do. But I am still confident of the race going ahead no problems.”
  • “I think there is always an element of worry with everything, but I am quite confident, having been involved in Korea in 2010, which was the last one that was talked about, and I think India was talked about, both of those went off no problems at all. So I am quite confident that Saudi will be exactly the same.”
