How can I watch?
What to look for?
The two long straights on either side of the T8 hairpin are the defining feature of this circuit, and will give plenty of opportunities for side-by-side racing. However, T1 could be the real focus of early incidents, with the tight left-hander sure to bunch the field off the start line – expect contact here early on! The fast T10 also requires high levels of commitment, as well as speed, so we could see some drivers make a mistake there. Lot’s of action all over this new circuit!
