Welcome to the Losail International Circuit, located just outside Doha, Qatar, for the Qatar Grand Prix.
The track's flowing layout offers a challenging mix of technical turns and flat-out straights under the floodlights for a spectacular setting for night racing.
Almost every type of corner a racing driver could experience is here to challenge the car and pilot, with its recently upgraded facilities also improving comfort for attending fans.
Circuit Overview:
The Losail International Circuit spans 5.419 km (3.367 miles) with 16 turns, starting with a long straight that leads into a series of high-speed corners, testing each car’s aerodynamics around Sector 1.
Sector 2, meanwhile, is a combination of trickier, lower-speed turns where driver precision and mechanical stability will gain or lose tenths.
High-speed corners around Sector 3 that lead onto the main straight conclude the lap, and carrying momentum around Turn 16 proves key in benefiting from the circuit's sole DRS zone.
