Dec 12 '20 at 20:02 comment added F1Krazy Montreal is a special case: they can't put the pit lane on the inside because the inside is occupied by a big lake. Donington Park is the only other clockwise circuit I can think of that has its pit lane on the outside, but I'm sure there are others.
Dec 12 '20 at 19:55 comment added Fredy31 In Canada the wall is on the right because the pits are on the outside of the circuit.
Dec 12 '20 at 18:29 comment added JulianHzg @PeterGreen Most importantly, I would argue, it is much easier to put what is often one of the major grandstands on the outside of the circuit along the start/finish straight overlooking the pitlane and the rest of the circuit. Putting it on the inside would mean spectators would have to cross over/underneath the race track (which is possible for quite a few circuits, like Silverstone, but somewhat inconvenient), and importantly would not see any of the rest of the circuit in all but very few cases (Sepang comes to mind where you would still see a large part of the circuit from the inside).
Dec 12 '20 at 7:23 comment added Peter Green "Why pit lanes are so frequently on the inside, I can't say" I'd assume it was because you have land inside the racetrack that would otherwise be wasted. May as well put the pit facilities in there.
