The Saudi Arabian Grand Prix at the Jeddah circuit will go ahead as planned on Sunday after a four-hour 20 minute meeting between the drivers and Formula One Management failed to reach a decision to cancel the race.
The news comes after the FIA and Formula One had already stated in a hastily convened press conference that the race would go ahead as planned despite and missile strike at an oil depot 12 KM from the track.
It is plain to see that Formula One’s decision to host the race is money-driven and it is disgraceful in this reporter’s opinion that the race is going ahead given that the sport is not only putting the lives of the drivers at risk but also all of the traveling personnel that makes the sport happen.
The sport has made an absolutely appalling decision in my opinion and the drivers should boycott the event.
It is hard to see Formula One recovering from this decision.
