The Circuit

What You Need To Know

Qatar became the 34th country to host a Formula 1 championship race when it hosted one of the closing rounds of the 2021 campaign.

The Lusail International Circuit was designed in 2004 with the intention of hosting a MotoGP championship round that season and provides the drivers with a fast and flowing track layout.

After F1's inaugural visit to the Lusail International Circuit back in 2021, the circuit has been completely resurfaced.

As well as hosting F1, Qatar continues to make inroads on the global sporting landscape, hosting annual top-level tennis and golf events. The spotlight was brightest at the end of 2022, when the country hosted the FIFA World Cup, the first time the event has graced the Middle East.

Fact File: Qatar Grand Prix

  • The GP plays host to final Sprint Race of the season in the all important run-up to the season-ending race in Abu Dhabi.

  • The race in 2021 saw a number of punctures attributed to the flatter kerbs of the Lusail circuit.

  • The track has a fast and flowing nature as it is predominantly used for motorcycle racing.

  • There is only one corner, turn six, that sees the minimum speed drop below 100km/h (62mph).

  • There are therefore no heavy braking events for us to tackle.

  • There are 16 corners in total: 10 to the right and six to the left. The track's main straight covers over 1km of the total lap distance and is the sole DRS zone on the circuit.

  • The pit lane in Qatar is the third longest of any circuit we visit on the calendar, behind only Imola and Silverstone.
