Flavio Briatore hints at future Saudi Arabia Grand Prix

Former F1 team boss Flavio Briatore has hinted that Saudi Arabia could soon be added to the Formula One calendar.

Briatore - who has a long and somewhat controversial history in the sport - helped Bernie Ecclestone to broker the deal which saw Azerbaijan added to the calendar in

That is the news from Flavio Briatore, who some years ago helped to broker the deal that took the sport to Azerbaijan, first as the European Grand Prix in 2016 before then officially being recognised as the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

Speaking to Italy's Rai Radio, Briatore said: "It (Saud Arabia) is a country that has had an incredible evolution in the last two years.

"It is opening up in an extraordinary way and there are now great opportunities for investment. As far as I know, they are already talking."

CEO and executive chairman of the Formula One Group Chase Carey has previously said that he is keen to grow the sport to 25-races per year, something that has not been met with a warm reception from teams.

Formula E has twice raced on a temporary circuit in Diriyah but. as this layout would not be suitable for use by F1 cars, it is likely that an entirely new facility would need to be constructed.
