38.0+ Liters suggested. Always check with your own driving

4.36 km, ~1.25 Liters per lap

  • No active overtakes until after Turn 5 Right, magenta in the map above.
  • The fact that you are allowed to overtake in the chicane on lap 1 does not mean that you have to do it.
    As always, play it safe. We cannot afford a lap 1 incident in the middle of such a huge field of cars.
  • Passing is difficult; be patient when attacking and help the leaders through when being lapped.
  • Please remember that driving off track voluntarily (1x) is strictly prohibited.
    You can receive a time penalty post-race for having too many off-tracks (undisclosed number). There is also an automatic slow down in race if you have too many incident points.

    However, it is easy to get 1x by mistake on this track. We do not aim to penalize errors, and therefore you do not have to worry about 1x on this track. Just play it fair, and avoid going off-track all the time in the same place.
  • If you get a slow down, serve it on a straight, off the racing line without hindering others. You are not supposed to mantain your position if you get a slow down with a car just behind you.
  • Be careful about the concertina effect braking for the slow corners in the early race. Try to be as smooth as possible, with gradual braking and no sudden changes, but expect to have to slow down a lot, especially later in the field.
  • The pit exit can be problematic. Please be careful in qualify.
