    My money is on Valtteri at 20-1 - Merc might give him some spice as well...

    There is no track like Jeddah in the F1 calendar, so it would be interesting to see if Tilke has got this one right. Being a street circuit, overtaking may be a challenge. But it promises to be a very fast track. We would find out at the race weekend if it translates into great entertaining racing.

    I wonder if the real track would have three DRS sections. That would definitely spice the race up. There could be quite a few crashes ib the midfield due to close-quarter racing.

    I have heard one analyst say this possibly could end up being one of the most dangerous street tracks (with its speed and closeness of the walls). It seems like there could be a race that is disrupted by yellow flags throughout the race.

    Yup!!
    There will be a total of 3 DRS zones spread across the circuit. The first DRS zone is between turn 20 and turn 22, with the detection zone placed around the exit of turn 17. A rather short zone compared to the other two.

    Fun? There is nowhere to pass! This track sucks and this race is going to be boring.

    It would be like Monaco in that respect. But there would be a crash or two to make it interesting. Because of the three DRS zones, there would be overtakes on the straight and the fast swooping curve. There would be overtakes and counter overtakes. But the grid would most likely split into three groups
