Monaco for me too. Monza (Italy), Silverstone (UK) and Hockenheim (Germany) come next.

And not one of you has mentioned yet the circuit that each and every driver from Schumacher to Hakkinen calls his favorite? Spa? Belgium?

It Spa for me which comes first for Eau Rouge. Monza and Monaco next. Of course I also like Sepang for the simple fact that I've watched the GP at the circuit this year. Its a pretty good circuit and the facilities are very good

Cheers

Well to me after Monaco it will be -
Nurburgring (though the shorter circuit is losing the charm)
Spa-Francorchamps (Definetly Driver's nightmare, that buss stop chicane, nearly stops an F1 too )
Magny-Cours (Loved it, but losing its cham too)
Suzuka (Perfect Final Circuit).

Now Boring for me : Sepang (sorry dippy, but I am talking television. I've seen silverstone live, its actually just the passion that makes the whole live experience awesome, but on TV silverstone and sepang are little boring to watch, ofcourse an odd naked man on the track does make the "Brit" little interesting)

dont think there's a correct answer..it depends on car characteristics..
and that particular team's record on it..
for e.g.
Imola isnt a fav. for the renaults.. ( no real high speed corners )
malaysia ( talkign about last yr ) wasnt a fav. for the bridgestone runners.. ( warmer temps )

in much the same way..
MS LOVES suzuka.. ( suits his driving style )

so its all down to where ure car isnt handling that well..
and how much performance u are able to extract from it ( consistently )

thats probably among the best yardsticks of measuring the best F1 drivers..
how well they drive a car which isnt handling that well ( a sick car )

The tracks that i like the most are Hockenheimring in Germany and Monza in Italy just love these high speed circuits but they have been slowed by introducing chicanes.But they provide pure entertainment and some overtaking opputinities too.Both these tracks are so much fun to play in the F1 games still remember playing Monza in Accolade's F1 game(dont remember the name but the file was gpcga.exe if some1 still has that game i'd love to get it)
Monaco and Hungaroring are the 2 others i really like esp since they are such tight circuits driver skill is so important!
