These days Formula 1 is discovering the new and very fast Gedd tracka, which put Saudi Arabia on the Circus ‘map’ for the first time in history. Finished in fact a few hours from the beginning of the first free practice session on Friday, the Saudi racetrack found the approval of most of the drivers, who underlined the very high average speed and the great fun given by racing for everything. the turn a few millimeters from the barriers. These same spectacular elements, however, risk clashing with the safety aspect. In fact, all the experts underlined that this is a particularly dangerous track because it does not allow the slightest margin for error, all while lapping 79% of the lap with the accelerator wide open.
The 2016 world champion also agreed with this line of ‘concern’, Nico Rosberg, who in one of the videos published on his YouTube channel did not hesitate to admit that he was happy that he never had to race on a track with these characteristics during his career. “I just did a few laps on the simulator – explained the former Mercedes driver – and believe me, this track is completely insane. It is extremely fast and there is no escape whatsoever. There is a bend towards the end of the circuit where you arrive in eighth gear and you have to downshift in seventh. That curve is almost full and if you look to the right, there is a wall“.
“It will be crazy – added the former box mate Lewis Hamilton, who in the past had already expressed his observations on the danger of the Baku track – and honestly, this circuit is so crazy that I am happy not to be in the car for this race weekend. It seems like a very high-risk track to me. It’s one of those times when it makes me think ‘I’m happy not to compete’. It will be exciting to see how everyone will fare, I hope no one gets hurt “he concluded.
