It was recently confirmed that Formula One will race in Saudi Arabia next year on a street circuit in the city of Jeddah.
Unsurprisingly, this prompted a wave of criticism from F1 fans and human rights groups, such as Amnesty International, which accused the Saudi government of using the grand prix to “sportswash” itself.

One fan in particular said the race shows that “money is more important than principles” in Formula One.
