Williams has produced this video showing Nico Rosberg driving a lap of the new Singapore F1 circuit on the team’s simulator.
The video gives the best impression I’ve seen so far of what a lap of Singapore during the night race will look like for the drivers.
A few of things stand out about the circuit based on seeing this footage.
The three part chicane of turns 10a/b/c is very narrow. Sebastien Bourdais said today he’s concerned about the severity of the kerbs at the corner as well, so this could be a likely scene for incidents.
The later stages of the track are hypnotically repetitive – it’s just one tight, blind corner after another.
And assuming this simulation accurately models the amount of run-off available for the drivers, there doesn’t seem to be anything like as much as there was at Valencia.
