F1: Yas Marina is a poorly designed racetrack

$1.3 billion & a blank canvass resulted in three daft chicanes and a mistake on the back straight (they had to add a kink because it didn’t line up with the grandstands). Although most of the track could do with a redesign, a very simple but effective improvement would be removing the chicanes from the overtaking zones. That would give drivers more chance to overtake by performing a ‘switchback’ on the corner exit which they simply can’t do at the moment.
