Juan Pablo Montoya, Michael Schumacher, Interlagos, 2001 | BMWFive races to go until the traction control ban – assuming it isn’t jeopardised by the row over ECUs. We’re going to see more spins next year, according to Nico Rosberg:

It’s going to be exciting. I tried it recently and it was quite shocking actually. In the difficulty sense it is not ideal – and it is going to be a big challenge for everybody.

I was going through the chicane (in the test) and I hit the throttle because I forgot that traction control was off. I was in first gear, and it spun me round quicker than I was able to think. I was facing the other way and I was like, ‘Whoa!’ In the wet it would be incredibly difficult.
