Expectations that the Jeddah Corniche Circuit might produce a race affected by red flags and Safety Cars were realised in a chaotic inaugural Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

With a Safety Car period and a pair of red flags within the first 16 laps, very few pit stops were made under green flag running. It also meant several drivers were badly served by fortune.

Lewis Hamilton and team mate Valtteri Bottas pitted under the Safety Car. Max Verstappen stayed out, and reaped a huge reward when the race was red-flagged the first time, allowing him to change his tyres without pitting and retaining his leads.

However, the first restart was incredibly short-lived, only lasting a few corners before another red flag was shown. Hamilton used that opportunity to get ahead of his rival, though he immediately lost it at the next restart.

Lando Norris was another of the biggest losers, pitting under the first Safety Car period and restarting 16th after the red flag having lost 10 places. Charles Leclerc did the same without really losing out much at all, due to their relative on-track positions.

After the race had started for the third (and final) time, there were further interruptions to running. Four Virtual Safety Car periods, caused by debris on track, make lap time charts look more like a four-or-five stop race took place.

Given the number of times green flag racing was interrupted, attrition was surprisingly low. Five drivers were not classified, in order: Mick Schumacher, Sergio Perez, Nikita Mazepin, George Russell and Sebastian Vettel disappear from the lap charts across the course of the grand prix data. The most notable of them is probably Vettel, who made a significant contribution to the number of virtual safety car periods by running with a heavily damaged car that was dropping debris – and him down the order, aero compromised out of any competitive edge.

Towards the end of the race Verstappen reported real difficulty with his rear tyres, which may also have been carrying damage from the contact with Hamilton on lap 37. In this bizarre incident, Verstappen slowed to let Hamilton pass after his team concluded he had gained a position by going off the track. Hamilton was unwilling to pass him before the DRS detection point, so Verstappen slowed down further. The result was the pair gave away four seconds compared to the chasing cars.

Once Hamilton finally got ahead, Verstappen’s lap times dropped off significantly. His gamble on medium tyres for the final restart did not pay off and he limped home as his lap times comparison below shows.
