I legitimately had no clue what part of the track I was on for most of it. Like it all looked exactly the same. Left...right...left...right...hairpin....left...right...left...right
That's why F1 drivers get paid the big bucks.
Exactly so. In fact all professional racing drivers will learn a new circuit in only a handful of laps. They'll spend time memorising the layout on plan when working with the engineers and then when they go out on track there are no real surprises. And with simulators, top drivers will have driven a circuit a hundred times before they get anywhere near it.
Of course, when you're driving in real life rather than a computer screen, you can read where the road is going much easier and know whether a turn is opening or tightening etc., using simple clues from the road itself.
