Home to the French Grand Prix since 1991, Magny Cours boasts the smoothest track surface in Formula 1. Wide and flowing in nature, the Adelaide hairpin offers the most realistic opportunity to overtake - although the more optimistic drivers have a stab through the tight S-bends leading back towards the start/finish line. Located somewhat in the middle of nowhere, it is however a favourite of the drivers.
