F1 Aramco Employee League gears up for action
Seize the opportunity to create a Formula 1 dream team and compete with Aramcons around the world.
The pre-season testing for the upcoming 23-race Formula 1 (F1) season has already crossed the finish line in Sakhir, Bahrain. Excitement ahead of the new season is rapidly gaining momentum toward the first race weekend, March 26-28. The 2021 F1 championship will present to its global audience no less than three new drivers and two new teams, and a former world champion will be returning after two seasons away from the sport. F1 fans will also witness the inaugural Saudi Arabian Grand Prix in Jiddah, a significant milestone on the Kingdom’s road toward establishing an innovation ecosystem of opportunity for its citizens.
The 2021 F1 Aramco Employee League is already gearing up for starter’s orders and Aramco’s second season as one of the key Global Partners of F1. One of the best things about the League is that it enables colleagues to create F1 “dream teams” to compete with each other across Saudi Arabia and throughout Aramco’s international operations network. All League players will have an equal opportunity to win the ultimate prize of a three-day VIP pass for the Paddock Club next season.
Participating in the League during the 2020 season provided me with a significant learning opportunity through engaging more actively with the action on the track and keeping up with the teams’ ongoing technical developments. These of course were designed to extract every modicum of competitiveness from the cars. It was fun creating a team that could achieve maximum points from each race, and although this rarely happened, I learned how to boost my chance of scoring more points by matching my team building strategy to the actual driver and constructor (team) performance.
This year the League will require teams to be more diverse – composed not only of the best drivers – and reconfigured before each race through substitutions and “wildcard drivers.” Such changes should make the League even more challenging and competitive.
The stage is set. Get ready for the lights, the cameras, and the action. The deadline for registering with the F1 Aramco Employee League is March 25, so I urge my colleagues to join now!
