#ThinkingForward with Prince Abdulaziz
Arguably no country in the world is investing more in motorsport currently than Saudi Arabia. Their efforts will be projected onto a world stage in December as the F1 season reaches a thrilling climax and one of the venues playing host is a new street circuit in Jeddah. F1 has signed a long term contract with Saudi Arabia to host F1 and ultimately the race will run on a new purpose built circuit that is being developed in Qiddiya. They also have the Dakar rally, Formula E and Extreme E events. We speak to Prince Abdulaziz, Saudi Minister of Sports, to discuss why the Saudis are investing so heavily in motorsport.
