The Physical and Mental Challenges of the Saudi Arabian GP

The upcoming Saudi Arabian Grand Prix is anticipated to be one of the most physically and mentally challenging races on the F1 calendar. The 3.84-mile street track features high speeds, close-proximity walls, and minimal tyre degradation, requiring intense concentration and precision from drivers. The anti-clockwise configuration, fast corners, and bumps in the surface add to the difficulty, with drivers like Charles Leclerc and Max Verstappen highlighting the demanding nature of the race early in the season. The combination of factors makes it one of the toughest tracks for drivers, according to Sergio Perez, who describes it as an “unpleasant” race.
