Here's hoping Lewis and Valtteri collect each other at Turn 1. wink

I wonder by how much the lap record will be broken? Maybe half the corners will be flat now?

Going through the uphill sweeper on the first lap without lifting is necessary to keep from being passed but on the first lap with tires that might be less than race temperature and an engine also a bit less than racing temperature running full rich has got to be the thrill of a lifetime. And the drivers know that if they don't lift in traffic they are going to do somewhere very fast and can only hope that the line that is left for them is one that completes the corner and takes them into the next corner while staying on the tarmac. The drivers talk among themselves and it appears that they all agree to take care of each other for the time it takes to get the running order sorted out.

No, no, no. The prime concern is to maximise points for Seb in particular and Ferrari in general. In case Kimi is "laggard," the best way to do that would be for Lewis and Valtteri to collect each other at the start to guarantee a Ferrari 1-2. wink Paint the side of Lewis's car red, and Valtteri will barrel right into it.

I love Spa. I enjoy it greatly on GT6 and Project Cars. I have an older game that has the bus-stop. The new right-left section at pit in totally kills the flow.

Someone clarify for me the limits of "grid penalty" for engine change etc. During qualy this am, it was mentioned that one driver has a 65 place grid penalty! Is this administered during one race even though there obviously aren't that many grid positions? Or does it carry over to other races meaning this driver would have to start at the back for 3-4 weeks (or more) to satisfy it? Stupid regulation either way.

He has to start at the back of the pack until the end of the 2167 season! If his career ends before then, the penalty will be passed off to the next generation driver / drivers. Welcome to the wonderful world of the FiA! grin

No, it doesn't, but they were carrying over for a while, when the rule first came out. The media stated that it was dumb and created a firestorm. FIA backed off and grid penalties more than the possible places just became penalties in name only, then Ron Dennis came up with the clever idea of opening several engines on a weekend to take dozens of grid places all at once, and not be punished down the road.

I thought the new guys running the sport were going to get rid of all the silly gar-bage.

Once again, win the pole, win the race. No passes for the lead.

I think that grid penalty puts him at the back of the grid at the British Grand Prix.
Time to rethink these grid penalties.

And what was up with when the DRS zones were activated?
