    We have many traditional tracks with some great and memorable names that we all know and love.

    But what about the newer tracks, with only or mostly corners with numbers??

    Suggest a suitable and memorable new name for a corner at your favourite track.

    I’ll start with:

    Melbourne.

    Turn 11/12, the high speed chicane

    Brabham 1 and Brabham 2, after sir Jack, ofcourse

    Over to you…

    My favourite corner already has a name, it’s called the Spoon Curve. Maybe the hairpin prior to Spoon could be called the “Kobayashi Hairpin”.

    Faux Rouge

    (Yeah, It’s been used before but what the hey)

    Canada

    T10

    Kubica’s Hairpin

    T12

    The Villeneuve

    Valencia

    T12

    Webber Chicane

    China T1,2,3

    Brazil

    Rename “Subida Dos Boxes” to “Glock Curve” or “Hamilton Bend”

    can’t really think of anything else.

    This is a nice idea for a thread, but the title is pretty misleading!

    Istanbul’s Turn 8 – “The Haymaker”. A haymaker is a wild, swinging punch that can easily knock out an opponent. The problem is that it throws the attacker themselves compeltely off balance, and leaves them open and very exposed to a counter-attack if they get it wrong.

    I’d like for the final chicane at Montreal to be named the Canuck Kinks

    Gotta be Turn 8, hands down. As for a name, hmm…

    ‘Bring fresh underwear’.

    Ha! PM if we’re going to turn to wrestling moves for corner names then there’s so many badass candidates for Turn 8. Like the Stone Cold Stunner or the Tombstone Piledriver.
