MOD TIME: The circuit is available in Assetto Corsa!

This means drivers will head from Jeddah to Abu Dhabi for the season finale.

The track is incredibly high speed, with throttle, fuel and tyre management going to be vital to ensure a decent placing. We're interesting to see how the drivers and teams approach strategies for the circuit.

How to race at the track

Unfortunately, you'll have to be playing on the PC version of Assetto Corsa so you can mod it.

PRACTICE TIME: The track is an awesome representation of the real-life version!

Next, head over to RaceDepartment, and get downloading the Jeddah Street Circuit. You can find it using this link: Jeddah RaceDepartment.

Once you have the track downloaded, you'll need to select the track in-game. The track is ever so slightly narrower than the one in real-life but it will be a good basis for what is to come.

MIXED REVIEWS: There have been lots of thoughts about the race's location

More than likely, no. Chances are the title is already finished to an extent, and adding a new circuit will be out of the question.

That being said, Codemasters may add the track to F1 2022, as the team will have had more time to make an official version of the circuit for the game.
