57: Faux Rouge, Turkish Corkscrew & Turn 8

57: Faux Rouge, Turkish Corkscrew & Turn 8


Faux Rouge, Turkish Corkscrew & even the Turn 8 (Parabolica, in the other direction!) are some of the corners that will entertain us and the Formula 1 drivers during the weekend of the 2020 Turkish Grand Prix. Before you wonder, yes, these are unofficial corner names!

In this Pits to Podium (https://bit.ly/pitstopodium) segment, Soumil and Kunal preview the upcoming race at the Intercity Istanbul Park. Did you know that the front row starters have enjoyed a 100% win rate at this circuit? Also, Lewis Hamilton has won here from P2 – in case Valtteri Bottas beats him to pole for the third time in four races. Irrespective of who wins, a Mercedes win is almost certain. And of course, Hamilton will also have the first of many chances to equal Michael Schumacher’s record of seven Formula 1 World Championship titles. 

Like every Grand Prix, can Max Verstappen trouble the Mercedes cars or at least one of them? Who will come out on top in the battle for P3 in the Constructors’ Championship? Daniel Ricciardo and Sergio Perez have the momentum but let’s not write off the Mclaren duo as well as Esteban Ocon and Lance Stroll. And of course, can Charles Leclerc spring yet another surprise in his Ferrari? Alpha Tauri have been on a 10-race points scoring spree – can they extend this new personal record at Turkey? Tune in!
