DRIVER VIEW from Korean International Circuit

Fernando Alonso

"The track is nice to drive and very interesting with three different sectors. In the first one, you need a very good top speed, in the second there are fast corners, with the third one featuring slow turns. I like the part from turn four to turn six, with very different lines and the possibility to overtake: it reminds me of the final sector of the Istanbul track."


CHARACTERISTICS from Korean International Circuit


Now back-to-back with Japan, the coastal circuit is some 300km southwest from Seoul in South Cholla province. Yeongam is composed of long straights, like its main feature - a huge 1.2km straight - coupled with street-circuit corners. The final sequence of slow corners call for a nimble car with good turn-in and good traction, a lot of it depending on the level of grip the asphalt has on its day. The mix of features on the circuit will make for a tricky race for even the most experienced drivers. Last year's inaugural GP was hit by heavy rain and the delayed race ended in near-darkness.
