When you’re watching racing on television, it can be a little difficult to get a big-picture view of the race. Watching a car careen around a turn is awesome, but it doesn’t always give a great sense of what it takes to win an entire race.

Fortunately, the good people of F1 have created this video explaining the track’s entire construction and what each driver is doing at each point on the track.

It’s great for new racing fans to get a sense of what goes into an F1 event, and for F1 aficionados, it provides some interesting history and detail about the track you might not have known.
