The three versions shown ran, respectively, from:

  • 2004 – 2005

  • 2007 – Present

See /u/icelad’s comment for more detail on additional bus stop changes

level 2

It occurs to me I that I should have included this in the video

level 2

Not quite correct; in 2002 the second part of the chicane was opened up and the pitlane entry moved

– 2001

2002/03

level 1

  • 2000 – legendary!

  • 2005 – still kinda cool I guess

  • 2017 – nope..

level 2

It went from legitimately cool and somewhat unique corner, to fairly bland massive braking zone chicane.

level 2

I really disagree. The current corner is very cool but also very risky for overtaking. Also the elevation change at low speeds makes accelerating out of the corner a lot trickier due to the fact that there’s less downforce at those speeds and traction up a hill is a lot worse. The high inside kerb is also very unforgiving.

level 1

Loved that 2000 Busstop in the F1 games. really fast, throwing the car from left to right. Similair to the chicane on top of the hill in Imola.

level 2

I would love if they added legacy tracks to the newer games and some legacy versions of current tracks too.

I sometimes think about cracking out an emulator to play the old ones!

level 1

First one was the best. Current one the worst.

level 2

I like it because it’s similar to daytona

level 1

1st video – this is fast. 2nd video – holy shit it’s fast. 3rd video – gp2!

level 1

The current layout is a fucking catastrophe relative to the rest of the track

level 1

They literally butchered an iconic chicane.

level 1

Why did they ever change the old version? That was the best, seems F1 like to screw up a good recipe at times. The current chicane is a real pig of a corner.

level 2

So they could extend the pit lane and main straight, and probably to give a better overtaking opportunity with the larger breaking zone.

level 2

While for viewers high speeds are awesome, most race tracks focus on slowing things down.

level 2

The first one was bad for overtaking as drivers would go through it as basically one straight line. So there was very little possibility for overtaking. A proper chicane forces left to right turn and drivers side by side can battle it out better.

level 2

So Ferrari has a chance 🙁
