Ahead of this weekends Belgian Grand Prix, ESPN ranks the best corners in modern F1 and where Spas famous Eau Rouge ranks among them.5. Senna S, Interlagos, BrazilAn iconic corner with an iconic name. One quirk of this circuit is that drivers cannot see the exit when they line up on the grid, which runs up towards Turn 1 before falling away to the left. After the start, the corner becomes a challenge for another reason, a heavy braking zone following the long run from the final corner and through the pit straight.The tricky, slow corner has been the scene of many famous overtakes - Juan Pablo Montoyas ballsy pass on Michael Schumacher in just his third F1 race and Jenson Buttons title-clinching heroics in 2009 among those which immediately spring to mind.4. Piscine, Monte Carlo, MonacoMonaco is often cited as the most challenging F1 circuit on the calendar, and Piscine stands out as as the most difficult. At the end of the iconic middle sector featuring the hairpin and the famous tunnel, drivers arrive at the Swimming Pool section after sweeping through the Tabac left-hander. They then navigate the quick chicane, flashing left and right over the kerbs with terrifying speed. As with most corners at Monaco, Piscine punishes even the smallest error in a big way.3. Parabolica, Monza, ItalyPerhaps the most iconic corner of F1s most iconic circuit. Despite the recent -- and hugely unpopular -- addition of tarmac on the run-off area, this remains a daunting challenge for drivers. The hairpin requires drivers to run as wide as possible, in an attempt to maximise exit speed onto the long, main pit-straight. That of course invites mistakes, with drivers risking a lot of lost time if they fall foul of the curve. The tarmac neutralises the challenge somewhat, minimising the cost of running too wide, but this corner still catches drivers out every year.?2. Maggotts-Beckets-Chapel, Silverstone, Great BritainThis is absolutely what a set of F1 corners should look like. This sequence inspired the design of the first sector of the Circuit of the Americas and its not hard to see why. After flying through Copse, drivers approaching this section at frightening pace, delicately weaving left, right and then left again before exiting at speed down towards Hangar Straight.?Confident drivers excel here, but equally an unresponsive car can be punish a driver lap after lap at this part of the circuit. Its also provided two breathtaking passes in recent years: Lewis Hamiltons GP2 pass on the inside of two cars in 2006 and Max Verstappens on Nico Rosberg at this years British Grand Prix.1. Eau Rouge-Raidillon, Spa-Francorchamps, BelgiumPut simply, this is still the best corner in F1. This left-right-left uphill sequence is the signature of Spa-Francorchamps and has been testing the bravery and skill of F1 drivers for decades. It creates a 1.7G compression for drivers in a modern F1 car, throwing them out at the top of the hill -- Raidillon -- at breathtaking speeds.?It is majestic and has rightly earned a reputation as the toughest corner in the sport. Like most corners in modern F1, this one has been neutered slightly in recent years by the relentless push for safety, but has lost none of its aura and deserves its position as the undisputed number one on this list. Quentin Poling Jersey . Still, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke thought taking him out before the fifth inning was an unusual move.
