    What a boring track, I’ve never liked street tracks though, apart from Monaco. Too many long straights, looks like another Valencia

    I think, the racing might be quite good there, just like in Baku. But man, this country has no history in motorsport and city tracks in general don't have the same appeal to me as real race tracks. They often look boring (apart from Singapore which looks awesome).

    Another boring, featureless, modern Tilke track.....Long straights, with slow corners at the end of them, whilst being surrounded by concrete walls......

    The racing equivalent of valium!

    A lot of room to cut corners.

    Very little run off areas and no contours kinda bland, looks like there are couple of areas for overtakes so not as bad as monaco but it lacks the character of other street circuits...

    looks and feels boring, i'm not a fan of those "flat" tracks. F1 should hire the folks responsible for the tracks that we have in gran turismo.

    Reminds me of Sochi. I enjoy driving on that track in the game though.

    Will compete very well for a top spot on the worst ever racing track list. A real disgrace.

    The new Grand Prix track in the Algarve has elevation and is great to drive it even had an F1 test there. Its also near the tourist area of the alargave and algarve airport so its an ideal race venue. But due to money it's being totally overlooked by F1. They choose Hanoi as they think it will generate more cash in Asia, having lived in Hanoi there is no good area for a great track and the poeple are only talking about F1 because the track is being dumped right into the city in their faces.
