According to Grandtournation, the turn has been changed into 379.3 meters straight, this is expected to create a huge difference in the lap times( almost dropping it by a whopping 1m 27s). It will also increase the number of laps from 61 to 63 due to the shortening of the circuit this year.

  1. Well written. Amazingly articulated.
    Although seems like Red Bull will have to work a little harder, I still consider them favourites. Also looking forward to watching Checo since he’s a lot more competitive in street circuits.
    Excited to see Lawson again too.
