The 2006 Turkish GP Preview

Tom Keeble previews the next round of the season and rates the teams' chances of success at the Turkish Grand Prix

Following a stunning Hungarian Grand Prix and the summer break, the circus is heading to Turkey, host of one of the best races in 2005 - and one of the toughest to get to, as hours of traffic queues face the teams each day. With the championship contenders only ten points adrift, this is a vital race for Ferrari and Renault.

Analysis

The Turkish Grand Prix is staged at the Istanbul Parkway, a flowing, anti-clockwise circuit that is challenging and technical, with overtaking opportunities for the bold. It requires medium downforce, balance, a powerful engine and a smooth driver to make the most of it.
