Red Bull arrived in Jeddah early for yet another stunning demonstration run ahead of the inaugural Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.
Former F1 driver and Red Bull affiliate Patrick Friesacher took the 2012 championship-winning RB8 for a drive along the Jeddah Corniche, pleasing the crowd lining the streets.
Street racing is not a new phenomenon in Saudi Arabia with Formula E having visited the Riyadh circuit in Ad Diriyah since 2018 but the arrival of F1 this season is a big step forward for motorsport in the country.
