Thought I’d resurrect this thread that was on the old forum. It’s as simply as the title suggests just pick your top 5 tracks.
They’re all quite close. Monza’s always been my favourite but I;ve started to really adore Monaco. The other 3 are very close though.
I love ths speed of Monza and Ascari chicane. It’s such a unique track with loads of kerbs. The speed of Suzuka obviously appeals too and I think sector 1 is just mind blowing. I can’t get over 130R either, everytime I think of it I picture Alonso’s move on Schumi.
I love the challenge of the other 3 though which I think are real racers tracks.
There’s loads of tracks on the calendar I love. If we could bring back any track then I’d love San Marino/Imola and it would be in my top 5 definitely. I know it isn’t what it once was but in its last years it provided some epic racing and I still like it.
Top 5 Tilke tracks:
It was close with Turkey and Singapore but I dlo like a street circuit. Singapore isn’t the best for flow and maybe it’s a bit long (it should still have all those bumps too) but I like it. There’s not much that special about Turkey bar turn 8 but it is generally a nice track. I like turn 1 as it seems to be a corner that requires great accuracy esp at the start.
Malaysia’s p1 as it is a nice, fast circuit. It has some corners I love and it has mental humidty which provides the biggest challenge for a driver during a race I think. I don’t know how they survive it.
The worst tracks ever for me have to be Zeltweg (just draw a golf club and that’s basically the shape) and the Tanaka International Circuit which I think held the Pacific round twice back in the 90s.
Also as Germany is rotating which track do you prefer? Nurb. or Hock.?
