His Royal Highness Prince Sultan Bin Fahad Bin Salman Al Saud, President of the Watersport and Diving Federation was speaking at the F1H2o press conference in Dammam today.
When F1H2o commentator Stephen Michael questioned him on his ambitions, the reply indicated a further association with the sport:
We are looking to get more and more involved in watersport activities and we are using this sport and event as a launch pad to do just that.
Developing a team from Saudi to compete in the F1H2o World Championship is something that we have discussed and are working towards.
But we want to do it the right way and hopefully, we will have some more news on that.
Saudi Arabia could then join the newly formed Sharjah Team and their fellow emirates of Abu Dhabi and Dubai in backing a team.
Abu Dhabi has taken back-to-back World Championship wins with Alex Carella in 2017 and Shaun Torrente last season, while the Dubai backed Victory Team are still looking to find championship challenging form.
