After several hours of meeting the Saudi Arabian, Grand Prix is expected to go ahead as scheduled after a missile attack near the Jeddah circuit.
After a Friday practice, the drivers discussed four hours on this matter, whether the race should be run, but finally at 2.30 am local time on Saturday, after further assurances from the owners, they agreed to play.
After a series of extraordinary events, team bosses walked out of the meeting and said, "We're going to race."
According to the Associated Press, Yemeni Houthi rebels claimed responsibility for an attack on an oil depot about 9 miles from the track.
After the attack, the second practice session was postponed by 15 minutes as team owners and drivers were called to meet F1 President Stefano Domenicali.
