An F1 track is a true temple of speed. During the F1 World Championship’s almost 70 year history, many circuits have come and gone, others have evolved and yet more new ones have appeared. Some have become famous the world over, preserving the iconic elements for which they are known Eau-Rouge-Radillon at Spa-Francorchamps, the 130R corner at Suzuka, Maggotts, Becketts and Chapel at Silverstone, the Parabolica at Monza and countless others.
Over time, the Formula 1 circuits have evolved to accommodate the increasing performance level and speed of the cars, thanks to a major effort from the FIA, that imposes strict technical and safety standards.
Apart from street circuits such as Monaco and Singapore, many Formula 1 races are run at very modern facilities, several designed by Hermann Tilke, the architect responsible for all new tracks introduced in the past 20 years.
Let’s take a closer look at the secrets of the 21 F1 circuits that host the 2019 World Championship.
