New Madrid F1 track layout revealed
« on: January 24, 2024, 02:21:40 PM »
Twin tunnels and banked corners will make Madrid F1 track distinctive

Start/finish line will see drivers speed down the Ribera Del Sena, a long straight that gives them a chance to build up speed.
 
As they approach the Valdebebas Tunnel, they must brake hard and prepare for the tight corners ahead.

One section to especially look out for apparently is the steep downhill run between Turns 7 and 9 after exciting Valdebebas tunnel, drivers will encounter a rapid elevation change as they transition from public roads to private roads facing a series of challenging corners, starting with the Valdebebas Curve, which is a fast right-hander.

Turn 10, the large-radius corner has more exciting possibility -  banking!
However, discussions are underway to determine the degree and type of banking, with the goal of transforming Turns 11 and 12 into a prime overtaking zone.

The sequence through Turns 13 to 17 that runs through the second tunnel and back into the main exhibition area is taken at high speed

Looks like it could be interesting.

Parts of the track remind me of Monaco

I'm not really sure the tunnels referred to are tunnels in the Monaco way, but rather the track goes under a big road - skyway if you prefer - and therefore it'll be more like going under bridges.

Too prove my point about bridges rather than tunnels someone has already released a mock up ride around the new Madrid circuit.

I meant the first 2/3 of the track layout not the tunnels
