    This weekend’s race at Canada is special for me because Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is my favorite circuit in the Calendar. What are yours?

    Spa is number one.
    Then Interlagos. Then Suzuka.
    Austin is getting right up there.

    Favourite circuit in F1: Monza or Interlagos.
    Favourite circuit in general: Mugello. @kingshark If you think any of the ones you mentioned were loud they all pale in comparison to when Rossi wins in Mugello.

    Circuits I most look forward to:
    1. Silverstone – Maybe not always the best races, but attended every year since 2008 (so some bias), and the atmosphere can be brilliant.
    2. Interlagos – Another circuit that can produce a great atmosphere, and the finales it has produced make it the most fitting circuit on which to end an F1 season.
    3. Monza – Just the Tifosi, who make a great atmosphere, and the speeds the cars reach make it eagerly anticipated.

    Circuits I most enjoy to drive on an F1 game:
    1. Monte-Carlo; 2. Monza;
    3. Silverstone; 4. Interlagos;
    5. Albert Park; 6. Yas Marina.

    I always look forward to Montreal, Silverstone, Spa, Suzuka and Monza.

    My favourite tracks in the videogames are Monaco, Catalunya, Hungary, Yas Marina and Melbourne so quite enjoy when they are on and try and beat practice times.

    1- nordschleife
    2- old spa francorchamps
    3- old monza combined circuit
    4- osterreichring
    5- rouen les essarts (longest version)
    6- old hockenheimring
    7- la sarthe
    8- mount panorama
    9- oran park (R.I.P)
    10- old Fuji speedway (with banked turn one)

    My list has nothing to do with how “exciting” I thought any races were at these circuits, as excitement for fans is very subjective, and totally different to excitement for drivers. These are my favourite tracks in order of how much I enjoy driving on them, in sims of course. I will also add that number ten i could probably swap for ten or more other tracks, its just too close to call

    ^- mine are old tracks because these days they’re mostly the same tilke designed flat tracks full of 90 degree bends and chicanes. Obviously if i had to pick from current f1 circuits I would say spa and monza are my favourites. Oh crap I forgot about old interlagos… Ok ill put that in number nine on my original post, pushing oran park to ten and Fuji off the list with so many other circuits I love to drive

    In terms of driving pleasure, you have to include Suzuka and Spa. Because it’s in so many of them, I always think a great test of a racing game is how much fun Suzuka is to drive. Monaco is a great unique challenge and some Tikedromes are remarkably good fun. Speang in particular has a nice flow to it.

    For racing, some simpler tracks like Albert Park and Montreal deliver more often than not, as do Spa and most of the Tilkedromes. Suzuka and Monaco… not so much.

    In terms of non-F1 tracks, you have to look at Mugello, Laguna Seca, Imola, Brands Hatch and maybe somewhere like Road America. I also like the Barber Motorsports Park from IndyCar.
