F1 2021 Adds Jeddah Circuit In Latest Update

Just a month ago, F1 2021 expanded its track selection by adding the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari, better known as simply Imola, and the Autodromo Algarve in Portimao another month before that. Now, another brand-new track is coming to the game as the Jeddah Corniche Circuit has been added in the latest update.

This means F1 fans will be able to race at the new street circuit before the actual F1 drivers do in December for the penultimate event of the season. The track will be integrated seamlessly, meaning players will not have to start over in their career modes as Jeddah will be an option at the start of an upcoming season. It will also be immediately available in Time Trial, Grand Prix, Real-Season Start and Online Modes.

The update includes a new patch as well, which addresses various issues throughout the game. You will find a full list of patch notes below. Perhaps somewhat unpopularly, the white Red Bull livery used at the Turkish Grand Prix will revert to the usual livery the team is using currently, with some minor fixes to better match the looks of the real car.

How much are you looking forward to giving the ultra-fast street circuit a go? Feel free to let us know in the comments!

Fun track to do some hotlapping, but it will be very hard to pass because of the very fast corners. Current cars struggle when following each other up close, because they lose a lot of downforce in dirty air. There's only one true opportunity, it's the tight (3rd gear) corner before the start/finish straight.

Those who think Hamilton won yesterday because of his engine (a.k.a. Verstappen fans) will have a fit with this track: it's horsepower, horsepower and more horsepower. There isn't a really tight section that favors the Red Bull.

I do hope that F1 2021 goes on sale at Steam at their next few holiday sales. I just can't justify paying $39.99 for it when you can get Assetto Corso Ultimate edition on sale at Steam for $8.99.
Damn. I never tried the white bull out. Guess I’ve missed that boat.
I’ll make sure to try the circuito de easy win for Mercedes with their speed advantage Jeddah.
