This 5.4km ‘duel of the desert’ track gives the expectation of great racing and some overtaking. The drivers will have to also battle against the challenges of racing over 57 laps in such a barren environment like wind, floodlights, and wide temperature fluctuations. The track’s most challenging point is the tight, downhill, off-camber Turn 10 left-hander. This start to the World Championship is sure to set the action-packed scene for the rest of the season.

This 30km coastal resort area track exudes history with its ancient Saudi Arabian city of Jeddah as the backdrop. This track was designed by the Tilke company with speed in mind. Average speeds around the Jeddah Corniche Circuit are 250km/h, which is the fastest street circuit we’ve ever seen in Formula 1.

This track has a reputation for being a bumpy ride due to it being a temporary facility. The circuit is also known for being quite slippery, rubbering in as sessions progress. It requires a well-sorted chassis to race effectively due to the spots on the track that require drivers to have a reactive front end to avoid crashing around corners.

The Chinese Grand Prix is completely unique, even when being admired from the sky. It was designed to look like the Chinese symbol for ‘shang’ which means ‘upwards’.
