The first sector of the track is a bit challenging and makes F1 cars rev through a set of corners that look like a S-bend. Then watch out for a triple apex at the left side of the track from Turn 6 to Turn 8. Here the drive needs to be more focused as while exiting the apex, the track leads to a hard-long straightway.
