Circuit Paul Ricard

The Circuit Paul Ricard’s even distribution of high-, medium- and low-speed corners is a key reason why it’s one of the most used test circuits in the world. F1 drivers love the 290km/h right-hander at Signes and the 5g joyride of the following Beausset bend.

AUSTRIAN GRAND PRIX

Red Bull Ring, Spielburg

28 - 30 JUNE

 

The fearsome, original Osterreichring was originated in 1969 as a replacement for the Zeltweg airfield circuit. It’s only small, but the Red Bull Ring packs a lot into a short lap. The first half rewards power, as the cars blast along three straights separated by a pair of uphill right-handers. But then as the drivers work their way downhill, the circuit becomes a regular toboggan ride

BRITISH GRAND PRIX

Silverstone Circuit

12 - 14 JULY

 

Silverstone was the first Grand Prix, hosting the inaugural Formula 1 World Championship round on May 13 1950. Despite numerous layout changes over the years, Silverstone has always maintained its essential character as one of the fastest tracks on the F1 calendar, while historic corners like Maggotts, Becketts and Abbey provide some of the biggest challenges for racing drivers anywhere in the world.

GERMAN GRAND PRIX

Hockenheimring Baden- Wurttemberg

26 -28  JULY

 

Hockenheim dates all the way back to 1932, when it was created by Mercedes as a test track for their cars.  In 2002, the track was truncated, with the cars now turning right shortly after Turn 1 and bisecting the original track. Hockenheim is still a fast track, though, with Sebastian Vettel recording a 231km/h average during his 2018 pole lap.

HUNGARY GRAND PRIX

 Hungaroring, Mogyoród 

02 - 04 AUGUST

 

The lack of straights at the Hungaroring often sees it compared to a karting circuit – and it’s true, the resemblance is uncanny. With several series of corners to string together, teams opt for Monaco levels of downforce, with a well-sorted chassis tending to be rewarded over horsepower given the short straights on offer. It’s a challenge many of the drivers relish.

Length: 4.381 km
Race distance: 306.670 km
Laps: 70

BELGIAN GRAND PRIX

Circuit de Spa- Francorchamps

30 - 01 SEPTEMBER

 

Spa is among Formula 1 drivers’ most loved tracks, with its mix of long straights and challenging fast corners allowing them to push their cars to the edge of their capabilities – if it’s dry, that is. The size of the track and the nature of Belgian weather means it can sometimes be raining on one part of the track and dry on another, meaning grip can vary from one corner to the next

Length: 7.004 km
Race distance: 308.176 km
Laps: 44

ITALIAN GRAND PRIX

Autodromo Nazionale Monza

06 - 08 SEPTEMBER

 

Formula 1’s fastest ever lap was set at Monza – Williams driver Juan Pablo Montoya’s 260.6km/h effort during practice for the 2004 Grand Prix. Cars are on full throttle for 80% of the lap, and hit their Vmax on the circuit’s 1.1km start/finish straight. From there, they roar off into the historic park section, where a series of big stops into tight chicanes give the brakes a good workout.

Length: 5.793 km
Race distance: 306.720 km
Laps: 53

SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX

Marina Bay Street Circuit

20 - 22 SEPTEMBER

 

The Marina Bay Circuit arrived on the scene in 2008. The 5.063km Marina Bay Circuit  with 23 corners is one of the most physically demanding on the calendar, its bumpy street surface coupled with humid conditions giving the drivers plenty to think about plus  the physical stress causing divers to lose as much as 3kg over the course of a race.

Length: 5.7063 km
Race distance: 308.706 km
Laps: 61

RUSSIAN GRAND PRIX

Sochi Autodrom

27 - 29 SEPTEMBER

 

Built for the 2014 Winter Olympics, the Sochi Autodrom is effectively a street circuit, Looking at a map of the track, your eye can’t help but be drawn to the epic Turn 3, a 750m constant-radius left-hander taking the drivers around the outside of the dramatic Poyushchiye fountain. The rest of the track is characterised by a series of 90-degree bends coupled to some rapid, flowing straights-that-aren’t-straight.

Length: 5.848 km
Race distance: 309.732 km
Laps: 53

JAPANESE GRAND PRIX

Suzuka International Circuit

11 - 13 OCTOBER

 

The high-speed track remains one of the ultimate driving challenges, with the snaking ‘S’ Curves, the two commitment-rewarding Degners and the white-knuckle ride of 130R all highlights in a series of highlights at what is one of F1’s seminal tracks. 

Length: 5.807 km
Race distance: 308.706 km
Laps: 61

MEXICAN GRAND PRIX

Autodrome Hermanos Rodriguez

25 - 27 OCTOBER

Length: 4.304 km
Race distance: 305.354 km
Laps: 71

AMERICAN GRAND PRIX

Circuits of the Americas, Austin, Texas

01 - 03  NOVEMBER 

 

Taking inspiration from some of the best loved circuits  the corners at COTA from turns 3 through 6 look not dissimilar to Silverstone's high-speed run through Maggotts/Becketts or the S Curves at Suzuka, while Turns 12 through 15 mimic Hockenheim's stadium section. 

Length: 5.513 km
Race distance: 308.405 km

Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace, Sao Paulo

15 - 17  NOVEMBER

ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX

Hermann Tilke, Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi

29 - 01 DECEMBER

 

The Hermann Tilke-designed track is dominated by its 1.2km straight between Turns 7 and 8 – which, with slow-speed corners marking its beginning and end, makes it a honeypot for overtaking moves. Other highlights include the tricky run through Turns 15 and 16 into 17, which forces the drivers to brake hard with bags of lateral load still on the car.

Length: 5.554 km
Race distance: 305.355 km
Laps: 55
