Nurburgring-Schumacher S
Hungaroring-Turn 3
Spa-Francorchamps-Eau Rouge still does it for me
Monza-Lesmo 2
Singapore-The Turn 11 and 12 chicane

Melbourne - Turn 13, the right hander at the end of the backstraight
Sepang - Turns 5/6 (Or 7/8 actually)
Shanghai - Final corner
Istanbul - Turn 1
Barcelona - Gotta be Campsa...
Monaco - Swimming pool entrance
Canada - Turns 3/4
Valencia - meh, none really
Silverstone - Bridge. But as it's no longer present, Stowe.
Nurburgring - Turns 9/10 (Called the Schumacher S i believe)
Hungaroring - Turn 13 (very quick right hander roughly where the final sector starts)
Spa-Francorchamps - Pouhon
Monza - Ascari
Singapore - T11/12 (the one just after that chicane)
Suzuka - Degner 1 (My favourite corner of the whole f1 calendar)
Yeong-am - Final corner
Abu Dhabi - None really
Interlagos - Ferra Dura/Laranjinha section

Copse - Maggotts - Becketts - probably the best complex ever created.
Turn 8 - Turkey
Eau Rouge - Pouhon - Blanchimont - La Source (as crazy as that might sound)Very special track, no matter what gets created in this world SPA will have it´s place in racing.
Suzuka - perfect lap = Nirvana. Best track ever created from a driver´s enjoyment perspective.

Nurburgring Nordschleife - the mother of all tracks. Whatever i said above doesn´t even hold a candle to this track.
three times the elevations changes of SPA is just insane in itself.
The truth will come out...
