The first sector is very famous, going up the hill through the Esses. It’s one of the best places in the world to watch an F1 car.
Then, after Degner 2, we go under a bridge and you can watch us go up into the Hairpin and also you can watch us come back, before we go into 130R.
Turn 1: downhill, 260kph, 6th gear. You need commitment into here.
Turns 3 – 7: the snake, through which the minimum speed of the car doesn’t drop below 185kph. You know you’re in an F1 car through these high-speed changes of direction.
Turn 8: there’s a bump on the apex here, which really unsettles the car. If you’re running the car too low, you can find yourself off the track almost before you know it.
Turn 13: the corner drops away at the exit, so you have to be very precise. A long straight follows, so it’s important to get the power on early.
Turn 15: not such a challenging corner since it was eased a few years back, but it’s still very fast and you certainly know about it in the wet.
