A1 Grand Prix: The full Peraltada

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Bruno Junquiera, A1 Grand Prix, Mexico, 2007I was fascinated to see, when I tuned into today’s A1 Grand Prix of Mexico, that the series is using the mighty Peraltada corner without any kind of chicane to slow the cars on the entry.

I can’t remember a major single seater series doing this since F1 last raced there in 1992. The Champ Car World Series had a tight chicane just before the corner when they raced there last year, and prior to that had missed out the entrance to the corner and instead driven through the baseball field on the inside of it!

There were no major incidents on the corner during qualifying – let’s hope the A1 Grand Prix drivers have a safe race on the challenging, dangerous bend tomorrow.
