Track Description

Though the track has gone through some minor changes throughout, the basic layout has remained almost the same. The circuit is twisty that is considered slowest in Formula One running at any normal race distance over 305 km. That combines with proximity to walls that lead to frequent safety cars. It further extends the running while nearing the time limit of the race of two hours. The heavy braking zones, the bumpiness humidity, and the lack of daylights make the track challenging both for vehicles and drivers. The track comes with ninety-degree turns. However, the variability, technicalities, and quick direction changes offer more challenges to drivers. Overtaking is expected at the end of the first sector. In most parts, the car runs close to the walls.
