DRs is stoopid. There's no racing anymore. With these Pirelli tires, it's overkill
I don't care if they take it flat or not. Get rid of the paved runoff, and it becomes a manly corner again.
Whether it's a combination of all (new design & regulations, KERS, DRS, tires, etc) or some, I don't quite know what to thank yet.... all I know is this year has been the most exciting yet
oh and there's noise Kimi/Lotus are a good bet for the podium
but i'm still a Hammy fanboi
Also, I hope Maldonado crashes into Alonso. With an Alonso DNF, it would make for an closer race for WC.
What's manly about a flat corner? Just keep it in and drive thru. The lift makes for much better action down the strait. I dont care if there is runoff or not, but at least tune the corner so drivers have to judge it. Now the strait extends from the hairpin all the way to the top of the hill.
Why they need DRS down that long ass strait is pointless anyway. If you cant get a tow with that distance, forget it.
The speed through Eau Rouge is so fast the run off they have now is still not much. The fact it was a test between just lifting and trying to go flat made it quite the challenge:
Now that it's easily flat (thanks to downforce) much of that challenge is gone. However the drivers still love it. I think they could tighten the corner up just a bit to bring that charm back to the corner.
I get that being on the edge of taking it flat is challenging, but now there's no consequence for getting it wrong (which, despite its being flat, is still possible).
^^ yeah, definitely possible, especially with maldonado
As long as he's going through the corner by himself, he should be fine. If there's anyone to hit, though, look out.
Speaking of Williams drivers, Barrichello got his best finish in IndyCar at Sonoma on Sunday.
Watching practise now, raining hard. Definitely lifting through ER...
Been trying to avoid this thread in case of spoilers....haven't watched quali/race yet... will have time tomorrow
Anyway, this made me aroused:
I sorta remember some parts of that makeshift track....IIRC, he's on part of River rd. (used to live there YEARS ago)
Maldonado plays to type.
Wow. 1 race ban for Grojean. Alonso almost got decapitated.
^^ how the hell he sees any of that shit is beyond me
