Turkish Grand Prix 2020 Winners, Qualifying, Circuits, Track
To witness a race filled with thrill and action, one must watch the Turkish Grand Prix. The circuit of Istanbul created by Hermann Tilke is one of the trickiest circuits. Unlike other tracks, it is an anti-clockwise circuit that has forests and fields covered through the course.
The circuit does not have a long history of being home to the F1 championships. It was the chaos caused by the coronavirus pandemic that has led to Turkey hosting the race this year after a gap of nine years.
The circuit has faced a lot of discrepancies and controversies throughout its existence in the F1 championship. It was in 2011 that the Turkish authorities withdrew their names from the list of grounds for the F1 events.

Turkish Grand Prix Circuit Details
The Istanbul Park Circuit has staged seven F1 weekends so far.
This track measures up to 5.338- kilometers that comprise 58 laps and 14 turns. It has built-in sharp chicanes with a radius of not over 15-meters and has covered four ground levels with the two extremes of the track running over 650- meters.
The most challenging corners of the circuit are Turn 1 and Turn 8. Turn 1, also recognized as the ” Turkish Corkscrew” comprises an edgy downhill left-hander just after the front straight. Turn 8, commonly known as “Diabolica” consists of four apexes and is one of the most adventurous turns in the entire circuit. The grid has also been host to other motorsports, besides F1.
