What do we know about the Intercity Instanbul Park circuit?

  • Circuit length: 5.338km
  • First grand prix: 2005
  • Laps: 58
  • Race distance: 309.396km
  • Race lap record: 1.24.770 (Juan Pablo Montoya, 2005)
  • Number of corners: 14
  • Overtaking chances:  Again, a returning track where the current breed of F1 cars has not raced so it’s likely to be very different to when we last raced here in 2011. Or at least a little bit. With DRS into turns 12 and 13, which should be the heaviest braking zone on the track is the plum chance.
