gallery: The 10 most terrible curves in the Formula 1 calendar (Motorsport-Total.com)1/10 SLIDES © Motorsport Images # 10 Bus stop chicane (Spa-Francorchamps): Admittedly, as a passing point it is still well suited, but the famous bus stop chicane no longer exudes the same flair as before after several renovations. A mistake is hardly punished, the narrow and strangely lying pit entrance is all the more problematic. 2/10 IMAGES © LAT # 9 Every 90-degree curve in Azerbaijan (Baku): the section around the castle is unique, most other curves are not. Most of the curves consist of 90-degree corners with run-out zones that are as interchangeable as they are boring. But this is usually not possible on city circuits. 3/10 SLIDES © LAT # 8 Jochen-Rindt-curve (Spielberg): Formerly an exciting downhill section with a natural run-off zone, today curve 8 of the Red Bull Ring is only discussed when the drivers are Complain about the high curb sausages because they break the cars if they drive too far over them. 4/10 IMAGES © Motorsport Images # 7 Curve 18 (Abu Dhabi): Thanks to the hotel, the curve delivers good pictures, but in terms of sport, it offers no added value at all. Overtaking at this point is not possible thanks to the curves in front of it, and the slow pace makes it no challenge. If so, it just pulls the field apart and makes overtaking even more difficult. display Huawei The slide show is continued on the next slide # 6 curve 10 (Singapore): At the beginning, the Singapore sling was a wild triple chicane that has thrown off numerous rodeo-style drivers, For some years now, however, it has only been an interchangeable left turn, as in many other places. That took Singapore's challenge away. 5/10 IMAGES © Motorsport Images # 5 Turn 14/15 (Barcelona): No one needs this chicane! Once a courage curve, the last curve in Spain is full today, which is mainly due to the chicane before it.

But the premier class put the chicane in the way of this project - also because there are stands and the cars can be seen longer. And the viewer? The lack of transparency in all the variants. 7/10 IMAGES © LAT # 3 Swimming pool chicane (Monte Carlo): When the site was still provided with crash barriers, the pilots knew how far they could go. The conversion has made the chicane worse for driving, because it works like a single compromise. The drivers are always looking for the best shortcut - which often ends in disaster. 8/10 SLIDES © Sutton # 2 Curve 19 (Austin): There is nothing wrong with the curve itself, but the rules take it so far up. Track limits are irrelevant here, so drivers can drive wherever they want. The pack goes through the wide run-out zone - actually unworthy of the premier class of motorsport. 9/10 PICTURES © LAT # 1 Curve 2 (Sochi): When half the field at the start usually feels like driving through the run-out zone and then rushing back onto the track through some provisional Styrofoam baffles, something can go wrong with the curve be.
