Prince Khalid recently commented:

We look forward to another incredible race weekend as we host the Formula 1 STC Saudi Arabian Grand Prix 2023 in just one month.

Following our first two races, we worked tirelessly to improve the experience and make visiting the event more entertaining for thousands of spectators attending the race. From the non-stop track action to the family-friendly Fan Zones and A-list music concerts, there is something for everyone at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit in 2023.

When I was young, I was proud to see the name of a company from Saudi Arabia in such a prestigious, international sport as Formula 1,” said HRH Prince Khalid bin Sultan Al-Abdullah Al-Faisal. “The link between Saudi Air and Williams has progressed to us hosting an F1 race. More Saudi companies are partnering with F1, including Aramco with Aston Martin and NEOM with McLaren. In the future, I expect this relationship to grow and play a more significant role, so we might be able to have our Saudi F1 team or F1 driver in the future.
