The Turkish Grand Prix By Claudia Beckford
The Formula One three weeks break is over, next weekend the opening will be the Turkish Grand Prix at the Istanbul Park circuit. This event took place for the first time on August 21st., 2005. This circuit is famous since it was opened as it is the third anti-clock wise track in the world, this colossal and unique track was built by the German civil engineer Herman Tike .
During this three weeks break, the Honda Racing F1 drivers Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello have been preparing and analyzing all possible mistakes and flaws, and hopefully this will help them to have a successful race. The technical team continues to work on the RA107, making sure that the cars are in the best shape for the event.
The Istanbul Park circuit is one of the most exiting circuits in the world, it follows the contours of the land, which dips and falls and the fact that is anti-clock wise makes the race even more difficult and exiting. The structure of the track makes it really challenging for the drivers, the long straits, high hairpins and tights eight turns makes the track really extreme. Jenson Button and Ruben Barrichello F1 drivers are full of high expectations, and thrill to race in such a challenging track.
Suhuhei Makamoto, technical director said they’ve been working real hard on the factory based on the Hungarian Grand Prix experience in order to prevent any kind of mechanic difficulties, the team was disappointed of the results at the Hungarian prix , and they want to avoid to make the same mistakes, therefor,e the last three weeks of break were extremely busy for the Honda team.
