Turn names tend to be earned rather than given. Take Mount Panorama at Bathurst, for instance: the first corner is known as Hell. When the circuit was first built, it was originally used for motorcycles and there was a tree stump on the apex. The corner got its name because it was believed that anyone who hit it would instantly go to Hell for committing such an amateur mistake. Or look at the Nurburgring and the Flugplatz corner; it was named because “Flugplatz” is German for “landing strip” and when the cars fly over the crest before it, they almost always clear the roadway. Or even in the case of Singapore – although the attempted to name the corners Sheares, Memorial and the Singapore Sling, it’s more likely that Turn 17 will become known as Piquet’s Corner because it was where Piquet deliberately crashed.
Names are not given. They’re earned.
