Video: A lap preview of the Korean Grand Prix race track

With the Formula One season heating up, every race remaining on the calendar holds huge implications on who goes home with the championship at year’s end. So what’s a good way to throw a monkey wrench into the title aspirations of all the contenders? Why throw them into a foreign race track, of course.

That will be the plight of the front-runners come October 24th when the Formula One circus hits South Korea for the inaugural Korean Grand Prix. We can’t begin to comprehend how insanely difficult it must be for a race car driver, even one with F1 pedigree, to navigate a race track for almost two hours. But to do it on a new track that nobody has ever raced on?

Yeah, that’s a pretty tall order, isn’t it?

But as is the case with F1 these days, it’s easier to get a virtual crash course on what lies ahead out on the track as opposed to heading out to the race with no background knowledge of the main twists and turns expected in the circuit. That’s why Red Bull has once again spared no expense in giving us – and themselves, too – an unobstructed lap around the Korean GP. This time, the F1 team tapped HRT driver Karun Chandhok to do the honor of taking a flying lap on the new and still-to-be christened racing circuit.

Check out the video to get your first look at the soon to be inaugurated Korean Grand Prix.

The total laps here is 55 and the length of the circuit is 5.615 km. Based from the circuit diagram there are of corner to be watch out here. I bet this would be one of the exciting race to look forward with.

that looks fun, I wonder how many hours they’ve spending to the race simulation to master the curves and twist of the track.

that was a fancy driving, I wonder how much money did the Red Bull spend to make this Simulator come to life.

The track isn’t even barely ready at this stage as it still has another layer of tarmac to go down on the top.
