Nürburgring Circuit: three corners in detail

Castrol-S
After the long run from the start finish line to the first corner, the Castrol-S, drivers brake hard and shift into second gear for the hairpin. The hairpin sees the revs drop very low here: just 9,500rpm, the lowest revs seen on this circuit, before going straight into the Mercedes-Arena; a second to third gear complex taken with an average speed of around 100kph. Through this section the engine needs to have good braking control on the entry to corners and good traction on the exit.

Turns 8 & 9
After the hairpin of turn 7, taken in second gear at just 10,500rpm, the driver accelerates hard to turn 8. With only a short straight before the corner he does not have time to reach maximum speed, but will be ‘flat out’, with the accelerator pedal at full travel, by the time he takes the corner in sixth at 250kph. The loads travelling through the car will still be huge even with the relatively low speed; the driver will pull around 3.5g through this section. As a result the internals and fluids within the engine will also need to withstand this increased g-force.

NGK Schikane

Turn 13 & 14 (NGK Schikane)
Sector three is the shortest section in time on the track, taking just 24secs to complete. In fact only the chicane and the fast right hander back onto the pit straight break up the constant period of acceleration. The chicane is the slowest corner in sector three, and one of the hardest stops anywhere on the track. F1 Drivers approach at over 300kph with DRS open, braking to second gear and just 90kph for turn in. The driver will just blip the throttle between the kerbs and then accelerate back through the gears to the final corner. In the data this big stop is seen very clearly, with an abrupt descent from close to 18,000rpm to a little over 10,000rpm.
