So the 2016 Formula 1 has well and truly started, as we’re officially 3 months into the proceedings. Have you been following the Grand Prix so far? The famous Monaco Grand Prix is up next, with the circuit winding through the streets of Monte Carlo. This is vastly considered to be one of the best Formula 1 tracks in the world, but what other tracks are rated up there with the best?
Marina Bay, Singapore
This a relatively young circuit that winds through the streets of Singapore – and what a circuit it is! The tracks is combined of specially laid track and actual streets of Singapore; with all the bumps, walls and tight corners that come with real life city streets which really enable the driver to show off what their cars can do. The track has a certain amount of straights which allow the drivers to pick up speed and also enable the all-important overtaking. Iconically this was the first circuit to host a night event, highlighting the breath-taking city skyline of Singapore – a truly great spectacle!
This figure of track is truly spectular. The track kicks off with a long straight which enables the drivers to pick up speed, meaning the first corner is always interesting. The track then snakes and twists before allowing cars to pick up speed again. It’s a test of car acceleration and driver skill. Suzuka represents a challenge in all respects. It requires cars to be primed aerodynamically for fast straights with stop speeds in excess of 310 km/h, as well as for the range of corners in the lap.
Ok, so this is widely acknowledged as one of the best circuits in the world. Its sharp hairpin bends and high-speed downhills and track through the forest make it a beautiful and exciting course. The circuit has some hair-raising sharp turns, with its Eau Rouge corner rate by many drivers as the most exciting in the Grand Prix. The course winds through forests for a total of 7km, and it a fantastic technically challenging course.
Or maybe the notoriously treacherous Hockenheimring circuit in Germany has pricked your intrigue. Regardless of circuit preference, there’s no denying that this year’s F1 Grand Prix is heating up with Rosberg monopolising the leader board.
