challenging corner

F1 Turkish Grand Prix – The challenge of Turn 8

When it comes to the great corners of Formula One, tradition generally holds sway: Eau Rouge, Copse and Casino Square, to name but a few, are legendary names in the sport’s history. ‘Turn Eight’ may have a little less mystique than its more historic counterparts, but the longest corner of the season is worthy of the reputation it has acquired since 2005. Turning left through approximately 200 degrees, this 640 metre-long corner has established itself as a firm favourite among Formula One drivers.
