Nestled a short distance north of Doha, Qatar's bustling capital, is the Losail International Circuit - the venue of the Grand Prix. Though its association with Formula 1 is newer, it has been the home of MotoGP races since 2004.

What makes the Losail International Circuit stand out is its distinctive blend of medium to high-speed bends contrasted by technical slower sections. Its desert location adds an unpredictable element, with occasional sand drifts challenging the drivers. Additionally, the circuit boasts a lengthy primary straightway, allowing racers to overtake their competitors.

In a spectacle of lights, much like the Bahrain Grand Prix and the Singapore Grand Prix, the Qatar race unfolds under the shimmer of floodlights, thanks to the state-of-the-art lighting system ensuring impeccable visibility.


2020: The inaugural year for the Qatar Grand Prix was nothing short of eventful. It was introduced as an eleventh-hour replacement, maintaining the richness of the Formula 1 calendar despite the global challenges.

Its debut's success sparked conversations about Qatar's potential long-term association with Formula 1. These talks bore fruit with the recent 10-year pact signed between Qatar and Formula 1, starting in 2023.
