Saudi Arabia ready for its Grand Prix 

Enjoy a new installment of "The Engines Roar" by Carlos González

It had been a long time since a start to the championship pleased the fans, the press, and in general all those linked to motor sports, such as the Bahrain Grand Prix.

Of course with their exemptions, but the important thing is that the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, to be held this Sunday, March 19 and second in the F1 championship, will be seen with a magnifying glass.

If it is true that Bahrain is a slightly different circuit and that it is early to really know what the true potential of the Aston Martin team is, what is true is that expectations have been created and at this moment they want to know if Fernando Alonso and his team will be the second team on the grid.

At the moment Red Bull looks much superior and I think that in this second Grand Prix, with a very fast track only surpassed by Monza and the second longest behind only the Belgian circuit of Spa Francorchamps, it could give us a better idea of ​​the real progress. of the Aston Martin.

On the financial front, it has just added a new sponsor, the Saudi Arabian airline, Fly Saudi.

By the way, as an anecdotal fact, the first F1 driver to carry the logo of this airline was the Belgian Patric Nevé, who was in Venezuela. Going back to Aston Martin, many think that we have to wait for F1 to return to Europe and see if all that glitters is gold.

In another order of ideas, the president of the FIA, Mohammed Ben Sulayem, faces this Grand Prix with the tragedy of the death of his son Saif Muhammad Bin Salim, who died in a traffic accident.

Tips: The Austrian Grand Prix was renewed until 2027. London wants an F1 Grand Prix for 2026, it would be a layout of 22 curves and almost 6 kilometers.

Apparently the current F1 owners want to be in London. We'll see what happens. See you next week and remember to drive courteously.
