In his track guide, host Peter Windsor declares that the top drivers are “really on it” through the sweeps of Turns 1, 2 and 3 as he picks out the places to separate the good grand prix drivers from the greats.
“Mid-corner [Turns 1/2] is where you really see some interesting work on the steering and the way they are coming off the brake, if you can identify the way the nose is tucking in for the second part of the chicane. I love watching on the inside of Turn 2 as the cars prepare for Turn 3. It’s uphill, very fast and probably flat in qualifying. The drivers that are really on it will have a beautiful change of direction there.”
The different approaches afforded by Turn 4 make it one of two places to see how four-time champion Vettel “Vs” a corner off.
