JAPANESE GRAND PRIX

Dating back to 1962, the John Hugenholtz-designed Suzuka Circuit is that rare creature, a Formula One circuit that tests every aspect of car and driver. Like Spa, there are awesome high-speed corners such as 130R that push a driver's resolve to the limit, an amazing 'esses' section, where incredibly rapid changes of direction put a premium on bravery and car balance, and the Degner Curves, at which the only options are perfection or a long walk back to the pits. Not enough? OK, how about this: it's in the middle of a theme park called Motopia, it's got its own Ferris wheel and the track is F1's only figure-8 layout. Ask any F1 driver to nominate their favourite circuits and this one will make the top three every time.
