    OMG! :( I’m afraid I am too young to have noticed before, but as I just discovered here (www.caranddriverthef1.com) it looks way too similar to South Africa’s Kyalami.

    I’m actually pretty excited about the track now: the elevation changes look/sound nice, the banked corner should be mega and the fast chicanes are pretty impressive.

    So most likely it turns out that you cant’ see the elevation changes due to huge run-off areas, it all just looks the same + TV pictures flatten them anyway. The banked corner is as boring as the exit to the back straight in Shanghai, ie. just too big. The chicanes are easily flatout. And T3 is unfortunately too slow to provide any overtaking down the back straight, bit like Abu Dhabi. I hope I’m wrong :P

    That huge corner between sector 2 and 3 looks great :D

    Could be an interesting track but hard to tell from this pop video with a voice over read out as if stood up in front of class. Sebastian, drive…

    Does every new Tilke track have to have an element similar to Istanbul’s turn 8? Both this track and the track in Austin do…

    Looking at the the layout, it would not have been difficult to do a figure 8 similar to Suzuka. I like the figure of 8 concept as it causes cars & drivers to be stressed in both directions.
    Don’t know why Tilke did;nt do more of them.
