Earlier this week Codemasters and EA Sports announced the release of the Jeddah Corniche Circuit for their hugely popular F1 2021 title, which brought the Saudi-Arabian street circuit into the virtual world for the very first time, allowing players to test out the track before their F1 heroes do on 3rd December.
To mark the release of the new track, F1 gamer and YouTuber Anthony Beckles – also known as BushiAntz – released a handy guide to help F1 2021 fans get up to speed and provide a taster of what the likes of Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen will face later this season.
F1 game expert BushiAntz – who we spoke to in a recent podcast episode -provides a detailed breakdown of a hot-lap, but also highlights some extremely lenient track limits in the game. As an added bonus, BushiAntz provides a link to an in-depth setup spreadsheet for every F1 2021 track, as well as a run-through of his game settings, which will no doubt help gamers just starting out with F1 2021.
From first impressions, the Jeddah Corniche Circuit appears to be a mixture of the Valencia Street Circuit and the final sector of the Baku City Circuit in Azerbaijan, with high speed, single-line corners flanked by concrete walls either side. It will certainly be interesting to see how the real F1 cars deal with dirty air through the medium to high-speed turns, as the track has already been pitched as the fastest street circuit currently on the F1 calendar.
