The Parabolica

The final corner of ‘The Cathedral of Speed’, the long right hand turn is known as the Parabolica. A very hard corner to get right and one that pulls a lot of G-force on the drivers.

Monza is the fastest track on the F1 calendar with some very quick corners and the Parabolica is not very different. The fastest lap ever in Formula 1 was set at this track back in 2004 by Juan Pablo Montoya.

The old track consisted of a high speed oval which was subsequently removed. A part of the oval is still used. Some of the old embankment is still visible near the main straight. The Parabolica was sketched into the layout when the oval was removed and has been a corner loved by all drivers ever since.
