In the world of Formula One, there are a small handful of corners which stand head and shoulders above the rest. For example, The Parabolica at the end of Monza as well as 130R at the Suzuka Circuit continue to shock and amaze viewers, spectators and drivers alike. Arguably the most famous corner on the F1 calendar however is Eau Rouge at the Spa Francorchamps circuit.
