Istanbul, Turkey 2011
58 laps @ 5.338km – 309.396km
This is the first race of the European season, where the teams generally have a number of major modifications to their cars. The circuit is modern with anti clockwise configuration that presents a challenge to some drivers as does the turn 8, which has four apexes and can be taken flat out by the best. A long straight from turn 10 is interrupted by a flat out bend in the middle that causes problems to some with braking from 320kph to around 90kph at turn 12.
