What is the fastest corner in F1?

Category: FAQ

F1 is all about speed. The drivers are tested to the limit as they push the cars, repeatedly, through a series of complex corners.

Some of the fastest corners on the F1 calendar include;

Becketts, Silverstone, part of a series of sweeping tours with the drivers taking Becketts itself at 300 kph (186 mph). Gear 7 on entry and gear 5 on exit.

The Swimming Pool, Monaco – After navigating the chicane the drivers fly through this complex at 215 kph or (135 mph) in gear 4/5. 

Curva Alboreto (Parabolica), Monza – a long sweeping right-hander with drivers entering at 330 kph (205 mph) and existing at 210kph (130 mph) in gear 4. 

Pouhon, Spa – a highspeed, gear 5, corner dipping before turning left. Drivers need to give 100% to take the corner at 290 kph (180 mph)

Eau Rouge, Spa – Arguably the most challenging and the fastest on the F1 calendar. Foot flat, gear 6, and speeds of 300 kph (186 mph)
