Turns 1 - 4:
There's a quite technical low speed complex through T1-T4, with mechanical grip and suspension settings holding greater importance here than at other sections of the circuit where downforce and the aero package have greater influence.
Turns 5 - 6:
Good high speed turn in and balance are required here. T5 is approached at around 270kph and taken at just over 200kph, before braking to around 130kph for T6.
Strong braking with good modulation is required into the hairpin, which provides a good overtaking opportunity. Approached at 280kph, the drivers drop all the way to 100kph through here.
Turns 8 - 9:
A high speed section of the circuit taken at over 250kph.
Turns 10 - 11:
Good mid-range pickup is required from the engine exiting T10 & T11; both of which are taken between 160 - 170kph.
The drivers will be flat out through here at around 280kph.
Turns 13 - 14:
The chicane is the only corner around the circuit where the kerbs are used. The left is taken at under 100kph, the right slightly faster.
This corner is vital to achieve good speed down the main straight. The drivers need to shed 100kph coming into the corner and ensure a clean exit on to the power.
You need a car which carries a reasonable amount of front wing at this circuit to balance the car for the longish medium speed corners.
The downforce level used here is very similar to that of Silverstone, which is on the high side relative to the other circuits seen during the season.
We need to concentrate on a set-up for high speed change of direction here, so it's somewhere you'd have the car set up a little stiffer than the general baseline. There is not much use of the kerbs so you don't need to factor this into the equation.
