I'd have said Barcelona turn 7, but the second part of the turn looks a bit sharp.

Not sure on this one.

You are too good, yes it's "The Masta Kink" at the original Spa, Sir Jackie ended up in a barn just to the right.


I thought you were just taking the gherkin. Very cool though. I read about it in Jackie Stewart's book, including some Nun's seeing his willy.

Buddh International Circuit - turn 10?


Correct. I like the avatar and username by the way.

And I didn't realize the person that previously guessed it correct goes next, sorry.

Would have said one of the Magny-Cours chicanes, but it looks far too slow to be correct.

Turns 8/9, Hungaroring (two corners after the chicane)?

I was thinking that but T10 on that photo looks so much sharper than it does on the circuit map.

Someone else can have a turn if I'm right

Let's see who can get this one. Kinda vague, but the experts should nail it. :)

I'm not an expert so lets narrow this down,
2012 cars so it's on the calendar which lowers it to 20
It's in the day so it's not a night race which lowers it to 18
Not a street circuit, which lowers it to 15
Grass rules out Bahrain
left hander apex without rumble strip, rules out (that I can think of) Brazil, COA, Spain, Canada, Monza, Korea, India leaving 8
doesn't look like Spa nor GB or Hockenheim
That leaves Malaysia, China, Hungary and Japan
First thought was turn 2 China but closer examination reveals its not.
Next thought, Suzuka hairpin, not tight enough
Next Malaysia, pretty much all corners have rumble strips or astro turf
That leaves Hungary where two corners are possibilities turns 2 or 13 and this is where I'm stuck... so a guess...
Turn 13 Hungaroring

Yes, way too easy it seems... I thought at first that that corner was called the Curva Do Sol, but that's the one right after the Senna S :)

Hmm, new try =>

It was the hill that got it for me. I thought it could have been the Pinheirinho at first but then I realised the car would have been pointing in the other direction....

XploZiV, that's a tough one... my process of elimination isn't working. I think I've got the year, I've eliminated a good few tracks from that year, but cannot for the life of me think which chicane that is. The Vodafone sponsors are ruining it for me!

I agree with this deduction. Let's hear the answer :)

French or Spanish road...I have an inkling due to all those trees that it's Montjuic Park, maybe turn 9?
