Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2022

The track debuted in 2009 as that year’s Formula 1 season finale, with Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel winning from teammate Mark Webber. 

The Hermann Tilke-designed track is dominated by its 1.2km straight between Turns 5 and 6 – which, with slow-speed corners marking its beginning and end, makes it a honeypot for overtaking moves.

Other highlights include the tricky run through Turns 10 and 11 into 12, which forces the drivers to brake hard with bags of lateral load still on the car. The track was modified ahead of the 2021 race, which shortened the lap slightly to 5.28km.

This high downforce track will average 55 gear shifts per lap, is raced at 63% full throttle with 2 DRS Zones and a pit stop will cost, approximately, 22.0 seconds.

Formula 1 Heineken Gran Premio De São Paulo 2022

The Autodromo José Carlos Pace is 4.3 kilometres long and driven in an anti-clockwise direction. The layout features plenty of changes in gradient, which makes it particularly demanding for the drivers and it’s not short of overtaking opportunities, such as the first corner or in the braking zone for Turn 4. The pit straight and the “Reta Oposta,” or back straight, are both designated as DRS zones, which means slipstreaming comes into play.

The Interlagos track is 700 metres above sea level, so the air is more rarified. The transmission systems come in for a hard time, with a driver making around 3,200 gear changes during the Brasilian Grand Prix, so gearbox reliability is a key factor.

This high downforce track will average 36 gear shifts per lap, is raced at 64% full throttle with 2 DRS Zones and a pit stop will cost 18.6 seconds.

Formula 1 Gran Premio De La Ciudad De México 2022

Mexico City Grand Prix is a motor racing event held at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez in Mexico City. It first appeared as a non-championship event in 1962 before being held as a championship event in 1963–1970 and 1986–1992.

The Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez sits over 2km above sea level, providing teams with the additional challenge of cooling the cars with thinner air. The track follows the outline of the original 1959 circuit. The section through the Foro Sol baseball stadium is like nothing else in motorsport, with the crowd’s noise almost drowning out the racing cars!

This maximum downforce track will average 52 gear shifts per lap, is raced at 45% full throttle with 3 DRS Zones and a pit stop will cost 16 seconds.
