Feature: Five Things to Watch in Turkey

With fresh faces ready to take on the unfamiliar circuit and veterans eager to get back on it, it’s shaping up for a thrilling weekend. Another factor that will impact previous data is the timing of the race. While track temperatures in the past exceed 40°C, it’s likely to be in the 20°C-range this weekend. The iconic Turn 8 is more than just a spectacular corner and will be hugely demanding on the drivers. Drivers will likely spend around six seconds at a sustained lateral G-force exceeding 3G through this corner on every lap of the 58-lap Grand Prix. Turn 8 will likely influence the stint lengths in the race too, with the right-front tyre particularly stressed.
