No dress code in Saudi Arabia after fuss and criticism
The Saudi Arabian Grand Prix has already caused a lot of controversy since it was announced. The criticism only increased when the organization announced that there would be clothing regulations that fans and staff had to adhere to.
However, the organization of the Grand Prix reported that there will be no rules, as reported by Gazetta dello Sport.
For both men and women the dress code was very clear. The most important rule was that they were only allowed to wear clothing that would cover most of the body. Skirts, dresses, shorts and shirts with short sleeves were all prohibited. Now the organization has announced that this is not the case anymore, which will be incredibly nice for the pit crew considering the warm temperatures.
The organization also announced that employees and fans do not have to wear traditional local clothing. Locals are required to cover their entire body, but that obligation will not apply to Formula 1 .
