You know, the ones with the number/number in them? I know the red corner number is the actual turn count.

TIA!!

Not sure which ones you mean? Possibly the movement modifiers when returning from off track?

I think it's the actual lap numbers.

If you mean the ones that mark the progress of the race in the table where you put the pawn, it's the lap count of the race. Took me a while to figure that out.

If it is a lap count, then how does that correlate to any game mechanics? I know the red corner number is used for turn counting, and after each round of car activation, it's moved to the next turn square. But how do the "lap numbers" effect gameplay?

I don't think it correlates to any game mechanism. I think it's there just for fun.

it's the current lap number and don't influence the gameplay.

The red ones are current game turn. Black numbers are real lap numbers. Example: Game turn 4 ends up with a snap shot of either lap 5 or 6.

The black squares reset some functions in advanced play.

Oh, those numbers

A F1 race is 300km, so different circuits have different numbers of laps for a full Grand Prix. This is keeping the game at 25 turns or so, but putting a nice thematic lacquer on the tracks.
