There seems to be a sub-sect of F1 fans that think Turkey is some type of great track.
I recall the 4-apex Turn 8 as being interesting, and not a lot else.
The track is still Tilke-Trash, although arguably one of the better examples of Tilke-Trash.
Turn 8 is interesting and a challenge to maximise. This year it could be a tyre killer, which might shake things up a bit. Other than that, there are two overtaking possibilities - one at the end of the "back" straight, and one at the end of the start straight. Or at least there was the last time F1 raced there.
Will be interesting to see whether the current cars can get close enough in the twisty bit and T8 to make use of the back straight. We might not get the overtakes we had in the past - if not, that'll be a function of the current cars compared to the cars used last time F1 was there.
Turbo says "Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools." oh, and "The Dutch fans are drunk. Maybe"
