George Russell thinks that the Losail International Circuit gives “hints of” the Tuscan Grand Prix venue at Mugello.


  • F1 visited Mugello in the coronavirus-affected 2020 season for the Tuscan GP.
  • The Losail International Circuit was added to the calendar midway through the season.

What Russell had to say:

  • “Mugello is more undulating and Qatar’s flat. But in terms of corner layouts, the lefts and rights, in terms of a speed profile, it’s got hints of Mugello.”
  • “There’s lots of medium-speed corners, fourth, fifth gear corners. There’s only one slow-speed corner, which I think is going to be really interesting, and then followed on to a really long straight.”
  • “So it’s going to be difficult because I think there’ll be a lot of split in strategy in terms of where people run the downforce, because the straight’s so long yet you’ve got so many corners where you need that downforce.”
