This is an excellent circuit. Both demanding and many oppurtunities for overtaking. Really enjoyed the race today.

yep, definetly the second best race this season after Hungary. A lot of overtaking and a fantastic end to the race and it showed Alonso has great defensive skills even when he is under pressure. there were a lot of great camera angles too especially the one on the banner above the straight before turn 12.

No, I don't think so. Due to the nature of Monaco's road layout, it has some genuinely interesting corners (Tabac, Ste. Devote etc.), unlike the majority of street circuits, especially in America. With all the run-off at modern tracks and driver aids, Monaco also seems to be one of the few tracks that punishes lapses in concentration.

The 'stanbul Otodrom is awesome though, it just needs more charisma. My suggestion: rename Turn 8 "The Quadroapexed Ultra-mega-hyperbend." Or just after Kemal Ataturk like everything else.

Turkey is one of my favourite circuits with numerous overtaking manoeuvers making for a brilliant race. If I was to choose one to drop I would have to say Monaco as their are very few overtaking opportunities and is the worst cicuit in terms of safety.

the one to drop should be Hungary had it not been for rain I dont there would have been overtaking

otherwise

get rid of Magny cours and bring the French Gp back to Paul Ricard

or the Nurburgring the race is boring and only serves to applease the Germans

Get Spa back on the calendar

brilliantly designed by Tilke

I think circuits like Barcelona , Silverstone ,Imola could take a note into how to make a demanding circuit where it tests the drivers and the cars and makes overtaking possible

Two races at Istanbul Park, two absolute thrillers! This is a brilliant circuit, with possibly the best corner on the calendar. Turn 8 already ranks up alongside 130-R and Eau Rouge in my opinion.

Loads of overtaking in both races, with the excitement going to the finish. Last year it was Montoya v Alonso for 2nd, this year Alonso v Schumacher.

Peter Sauber should be proud. Every winner of the Turkish GP made his debut at Sauber!
