The Formula 1 race track has an overall length of 5,451.24 m and includes 7 left and 7 right
turns. The longest straight runs parallel to the Dragster track between the turns T 13 and T 14 and has a length of 1.175 m. The
standard width of the track is between 13 m and 15 m, in turns it expands up to 20 m (turn T 13). Further unique characteristics of
the track layout are turns with snail-like narrowing (turn T 1 to T 3), turns with snail-like expansion (turn T 10 to T 12) and two
pointed turns (turn T 5 and turn T 13).
The axis of the race track is at its lowest point on + 4.50 m above sea level, the
highest point in turn T 2 is on + 11.24 m above sea level. The maximum upward slope amounts to 3%, the maximum downward slope to 8%,
the transverse downward slope of the roadway is 2.5%.
The combination of turns and straight lines, combined with the rising
and falling of the gradient permits top speed up to 327 km/H on the longest straight line (between T 12 and T 13) and a deceleration
to 87 km/H is required in close turns.
The constant change between acceleration and deceleration parts, connected by high
speed sections represents a challenge in driving, offers sufficient opportunities for overtaking manoeuvres and achieves an
intensive and tensionful experience of motor sport for the spectators
