Was having chat the other day about my favourite corners in F1. Got me thinking of couple which i like, 1 is from Le Mans, but they a fantastic corners so i put them on my list.

1-Spa Pouhon
2-Le Mans Porsche curves
3-Suzuka Spoon curve
4-Monza Curva Parabolica
5-Spa (again) Blanchimont/the old bus stop
6-Silverstone Maggots/ becketts
7-Monaco Nouvelle chicane. Just because of the bumpy braking area and see lot of locking up and good passing (Fernando '10)

The old final two turns at Barcelona were fantastic.

I really like the turn 12, 13, 14 sequence in Malaysia for some reason, and off course all the classic favourites that have already been mentioned.

Agree with most of the above. So a general consensus seems to be that Spa, Monza and Silverstone are three of our most favourite tracks?

i do like that corner aswell (both) but, more so 10-15 years ago was the best.

After watching FP sessions and qualie, i have too say turn 4 at Hungaroring. Not great for what happened there last year, but watching the car turn in there and then the heavy braking for turn 5, great stuff. I'd forgotten about this corner

Rob you must be crackers, they could hit turn 4 at the Hungaroring with a nuclear bomb for all I care; in fact it'd be the best thing for it.

I loved the old Hockenhiem aswell because it had that element of danger to it.

I agree with most of the ones already mentioned. Can I also add fast left+right after Dunlop at Nurburgring (I'm sure there's a name but I can't remember now!)? Also Nurburgring at Mangy Cours.

i know, i was thinking that as writing it, but, great to watch Felipe go through there at high speed flicking left, great stuff.

i think they renamed them couple years back , micheal Schumacher-s. Was the year , Hamilton ended up in the tyre wall there. Want say 2007, but not 100% confident on that year.

1. Acque Minerali - Imola (the best corner EVER! but a bit ruined with asphalt in safety zones :()
2. Curva Grande - Monza (high speed, flat out and no lame asphalt in safety zone)
