Circuit length 2.495 km, clockwise
Corners 21 – 12 right bends, 9 left bends.
Track surface Circuit has been completely resurfaced with new asphalt.

Circuit layout A number of last-minute modifications: T9 and T10 significantly faster (30-40 km/h), T18 and T19 a bit tighter. Downhill section from T1 to T14 very demanding.
Tyre wear Important factor, as only two sets of tyres are now available, instead of four. Greater strain on the rear axle, including in the T9/T10 section, which is now faster.

Risk of crashes High. Experience from previous years shows that yellow phases, safety cars and even the red flag are likely.
Key factors Dealing with the switch from day to night, qualifying performance, tyre management.
