I see a post got removed, though I'm not sure why.

I think "wide corners" is meant to be open and flowing, rather than strictly the track width.

Abu Dhabi suffers from the same malady that afflicts Shanghai, Yeongam, Buddh, Austin, and Sochi. It's the same with Tilke's re-works of Hockenheim, Fuji, and Mexico City. You have quite slow corners leading onto the most major straights, and so you NEED a long straight, even with the aid of DRS, to close the physical gap opened up due to the accordion effect enough to have a go. The first back straight at Abu Dhabi is 1,173 meters. For Austin, the back straight is 1,207 meters. Fuji's front straight is 1,475 meters. On the other hand, Sepang's pit straight is only 905 meters in length.

And we can argue all the other stuff, but the track at Baku at least isn't bad for actual racing.

The only certainty is that nothing is certain.
