Circuit[edit]

Circuit des Invalides[edit]

View from the Esplanade des Invalides, where the pit lane is located.

The track is 1.93 km in length and features 14 turns. It goes clock-wise around Les Invalides with the Musée de l'Armée and the tomb of Napoleon. The pit lane is located along the Esplanade des Invalides, north of Les Invalides.[2] It is characterised by a slippery surface, and a short section at turn 3 with new tarmac temporarily placed over the cobblestones. It also featured the tightest pit lane between turns 14 and 1 in the entire calendar due to the tight hairpin turn before rejoining the track
