Had a run at the - for F1 - new Dubai-track. That is a completely different kettle of fish from the Losail track. I've never seen a track with so much camber, off-camber, switches of camber before... there's also a banked entry to the longest straight. What I noticed is that there several places on the track where you can't a. change gear because of the switch in camber, b. you can't lift throttle because of the switch. Really curious if the teams can negate that with the set-ups.

... and yes, the run into the corner was cut off. Don't know why Windows Gamebar does that with stuff you record out of games... even in Windows 10.

Is this the Dubai Autodrome? Formula 1 isn't going to race there. Closest we had was a couple GP2 races back in the day, in 2008 or 2009.

 

You're probably mistaking this for the redesign of Abu Dhabi? Or the new Jeddah track in Saudi Arabia?

 

Also this mod seems a bit of dubious quality with the very harsh track surface drops, I don't think it is like that in real life. Here's a real lap:
