    I have done this on the basis of the 2010 calendar. I am sure there are great corners that i have left out because i cannot remember corners from circuits that were not in 2010.

    Would it be of bad taste to say “The Wall of Death” at AVUS? Almost 45 degrees of speed, and almost certain death if you went off on it.

    Bretelle des Quatre Bornes at Linas Montlhery, I know it’s been a long time since anyone raced there, but it’s a little gem from the ancient history of motorsport.

    And ofcourse all the corners that you expect in this kind of list, just thought these two classics were worth special mentions.
