Formula 1 is gearing up for a return to the Istanbul Park circuit it last raced at in 2011, and which enjoyed almost universal acclaim from the drivers, who revelled in the high-speed challenge of the Turkish track.

    Robert Kubica competed in five Turkish Grands Prix back in the day, enjoying a best finish of fourth with BMW Sauber in 2008. The perfect driver, then, to guide us around a lap of the 3.3-mile Istanbul Park track, famously crowned by the near-mythical Turn 8 complex.

    Enjoy the Alfa Romeo reserve driver’s guide to the circuit in the video above.
