With a whole set of tyres dedicated only to the shake- down, the teams have no reason to hold back on the throttle. The Shakedown is the drivers and teams last chance to test their cars at full speed. As a spectator this is an opportunity to see your favourite drivers over and over again from different perspectives.
The stage starts with a 3 km long technical section, where the blind crests and curves follow each other. After 3,5 km, the route changes character and becomes much straighter and faster, up to 6,5 km where the stage offers several fast corners before the finish.
