The host of the first Formula 1 race, which took place in 1950, is an excellent place to begin.
The layout of Silverstone has changed a lot over time to keep up with how the sport has changed over time. The most recent change happened in 2010, but its most iconic corners have stayed the same. Seeing a Formula 1 car work its way through Copse, Maggotts, Becketts, and Stowe in qualifying trim is still a wonderful sight of both the driver and the machine working at full capacity.
It is still one of the fastest and most popular Formula One tracks, and since most teams are based in the UK, it is also a “home” race for a large portion of the paddock.
The Temple of Speed in Monza, Italy, is both the fastest track in Formula One and home to one of the sport’s most ardent followings as the tifosi cheer on Ferrari each year.
Overtaking is always possible due to the iconic combination of high-speed corners like the Ascari Chicane, Parabolica, and the two Lesmo corners, which are separated by chicanes and hard-braking zones. In Formula 1, simply being fast is crucial, as that should always be the goal.
Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium—Like the track that comes next on this list, Spa frequently ranks near the top of the list of Formula 1 drivers’ favorite tracks.
It is the calendar’s longest track, but it also has some of the sport’s most famous corners, like the plunge down from La Source and the flat-out rise through Eau Rouge and Raidillon to start a wild Ardennes lap.

Interlagos, Brazil: It will be thrilling to be roared on by a packed crowd at Interlagos, which is still one of the best F1 tracks in the world. Even though it is more than 80 years old as a circuit, modern Formula 1 cars look right at home there, and it consistently puts on great races year after year.
The Senna S’s downhill plunge, round, and down to Descida do Lago, presents a great opportunity for overtaking. The drivers’ ascent uphill through Ferradura’s high-speed right-hander is painful for their necks, and nailing Juncao’s exit is crucial to properly finishing the lap. We wouldn’t have it any other way—a genuine driver’s circuit.
