Hadjar: “It is the track I am most looking forward to drive at” on the Jeddah Corniche Circuit

IwasaIwasa: “In a race situation it shouldn’t be so different” on changes to Turn 22-23 at Jeddah

Isack Hadjar is eagerly anticipating driving on the Jeddah Corniche Circuit in Saudi Arabia.

The Frenchman said: “It is the track I am most looking forward to drive at because I believe it is the most demanding one on the calendar. Especially due to the high-speed in sector one so close to the walls.”

Hadjar had a mixed weekend on his FIA F2 debut in Bahrain finishing outside the points in the Sprint Race before driving to seventh place in Race 2.

Jeddah is home to 27 turns and is one of the quickest on the calendar. The first sector is incredibly fast Esses section from Turn 4 to Turn 10.

The Red Bull Junior explained that the opening sector of the lap is where the most lap time can be made.

“Sector one is the longest one and with the most corners to make the difference, really looking forward to push the car to the limit there. Turn 6 to Turn 10 is just breathtaking.”

The 18-year-old qualified in 14th place in Bahrain and ultimate speed over a single lap is something that the Hitech driver needs to work on by his own admission.

“Qualifying pace will be the main thing to improve from the first round, especially on a street circuit in which overtaking is limited.”

The Jeddah circuit will also feature some safety changes including the Turn 22-23 chicane being slowed down while kerbs have been altered at multiple turns.
