Altogether, 14 turns, 3 straight and large curve with a semi-sequential form, interrupted in the middle with a chicano with three turns that will reduce the maximum speed to the pilots.
The 80 hectares of O. Higgins Park are partly arboreal and the central area of the straight is deserted, so the light sets of the south summer sun between the trees of the curves on both sides of the track will make more difficulty while the race.
