    I’m sure we’ve had a topic which discusses the top 10 corners. But what’s the best corner of each track on the calender? My personal opinion:

    Melbourne:

    Turn 11-12 fast left-right chicane, very underrated corner imo.

    Sepang:

    Turns 7-8, the double right apex.

    Shangai:

    Turn 6, the fast left corner where Hamilton overtook Vettel this year.

    Istambul:

    Turn 8, too bad we wont have it next year.

    Barcelona:

    Campsa, nothing else is special on that circuit.

    Monaco:

    So many good corners, but I choose Loews harpin, unique!

    Canada:

    The final “champions” chicane.

    Valencia:

    The penultimate corner, spectacular camera view!

    Silverstone:

    A lot of good corners, but Maggots is the best imo.

    Nurburgring:

    Meh, Schumacher S.

    Hungaroring:

    Turn 4 is pretty awesome, blind and fast.

    Spa-fracorchamps:

    Blanchimont, though Eau Rouge and Pouhon are so close!

    Monza:

    Parabolica, any question?

    Singapore:

    “The Singapore Sling” (turns 1-2)

    Suzuka:

    130R, even though it’s been slightly revised.

    Yeongman:

    The final corner.

    Yas Marina:

    Truns 2-3 are the only good corners on that track.

    Interlagos:

    Turns 6 and 7, known as the Ferra Durra.

    What do you think?

    As Zadak once said…

    Not sure about your pick for Shanghai (a very underated track by the fans in my opinion) The corner leading onto the long straight is the best corner there, I think, full throttle acceleration around the banking, fantastic.

    duncan- the blind Hungaroring corner is T4. T6 is the entry to the chicane. “Turn 7 chicane” in Monza is the Ascari chicane ;)

    Also, by Turn 11 Interlagos do you mean Mergulho, or Juncao?

    Well, it depends on what you count as a corner, since they upgraded T1 it is counted as 2 corners and the slight right kink just before the blind corner is sometimes included as a corner. I mean Mergulho, It is fantastic

    Why do so many people like the hairpin at Shanghai? Or do you guys mean turn 7? The fast left hander where Lewis took Vettel this year?

    I’m not sure how you can confuse Turn 7 for the hairpin.

    Turn 6 is the hairpin and Turn 7 and 8 are the fast chicane at Shanghai. But a lot of people put Turn 6 as the favourite corner.

    Good idea for a thread Kingshark. I’d give an honourable mention to the Ascari Chicane at Monza, which is surely the best chicane in F1. It’s more of an S- bend, really

    I think Turn 8 is a much better corner, we’ve often seen a driver hang it on the outside to overtake into Turn 9.

    Ned it’s the one example I can think of right now where a chicane can be fun. It’s actually probably my favourite bit of track in F1 atm.
