One of the great F1 permanent circuits. It was better before that last chicane was installed. Good post - thanks!

Time to see if The Incredible Hulk can extend his lead.

Methinks that some of the veterans will do well on this track, but I could be wrong.

I get mixed reactions to this opinion but the track layout looks very conducive to a great race. Like Bahrain, this track has one long straight and is more technical before/after it. Which will let any car that can corner decently stay in the hunt as opposed to the Merc. killing everyone in top speed as with the two long straights at Singapore.

From what I've been reading all of the teams will have new bits to try on the cars for this race so it will be interesting to see who makes gains in performance.

Thanks for posting the info. It saves me from having to look it all up. I'm excited to see what teams improve, and as always, excited to see the European tracks.

Mercedes has maintained their performance gap to the rest of the field, so the heart of the F1 season in Europe looks like it will be dominated by Mercedes. The battle between Hamilton and Rosberg looks like it could get fierce. I was wondering why Hamilton was questioning his team's strategy all through the race. This seems to be Hamilton psyching himself out again, like the way he did with McLaren a couple of years ago, alienating himself from the team. Even though Hamilton looks to be the faster of the two drivers on the team at the moment, Rosberg is only a tick behind, and his continuing presence in Hamilton's mirrors may make Lewis neurotic. In the last three laps when Rosberg was closing in, Hamilton wanted continuous updates on the gap.
