F1: Verstappen recovering from illness ahead of Saudi Arabian GP

–by Mark Cipolloni–

Max Verstappen has been suffering from a stomach illness over the past few days and, with the agreement of the FIA, will not be present at the Jeddah track today for Saudi Arabian GP media events.

Temperatures approaching 90-F during the day in Jeddah won’t help.

A mostly clear weekend with some cloud cover on Saturday. Afternoon highs of 84-90°F with temperatures in the low 80s for the evening sessions. Winds from the north. No risk of rain.
