The Circuit de Hermanos Fernandez has featured on the F1 calendar a number of times. Now, following a major renovation, we see F1 return to the renowned Central American track for the first time since 1992. The anti-clockwise circuit boasts 14 difficult corners with 8 right-handers and 6 left-handers. The final Peraltada curve is very reminiscent of the Parabolica curve at Monza, however, with banked sides, the F1 cars can pick up even more speed through this challenging turn into the Main Straight.
Difficulties of this track come from the changing geology of the region means that the track surface is naturally uneven, although new asphalt will be laid down in preparation for the F1. Additionally the high altitude of the circuit will no doubt be challenging for the drivers. With the circuit located at 2285 metres above sea level, the thin air will make breathing more difficult.
