I too hate corners just numbered. Especially because with possible track changes. OK, this didn’t happen but if driver had commented his Bahrain experience like this:
2009: “I crashed in turn 10″
2010: “I crashed in turn 18″
How many would understand that it was actually the same corner?
Also, some of the tracks have about every change of direction as a corner (Valencia), while Montreal has that kink just after the start, kink before the hairpin where Kubica crashed and some kinks on the long straight unnumbered. Also, you could argue that Istanbul turn 8 would actually be turns 8, 9, 10 and 11.
