The Losail International Circuit makes its debut on the Formula One calendar for the first-ever Qatar Grand Prix. The circuit has so far been used for MotoGP, but is it also suitable for Formula 1? Tiametmarduk found out in his latest video.

Racing in Qatar

Qatar will host a Formula One race for the first time in history in 2021. The gap left by the cancellation of the Australian Grand Prix has finally been filled, bringing F1 to a new country. The circuit is already there, which makes the last-minute announcement less exciting.

The Losail International circuit has been used by MotoGP for years, but the question is whether it is also suitable for F1. We've seen a lap of the track before, but in this video Tiametmarduk also finds out if you can race at this track. In the simulation of Assetto Corsa, he tests if overtaking is possible here.
