Vettel on Massa was a real beauty.
Yes it is.

Right. Now do Alonso and we can have a comparison (though I think the latter will be quite a bit more compelling).
@bag0 For me it’s not even necessary tbh, I like this little track as it is and it adds some much-needed contrast to the calendar.
I saw that drop using gmap’s elevation feature, I think it would be brilliant: the braking zone before the new hairpin would be extra long because of it and differences in traction would also be magnified by the climb towards the chicane.
If that piece of land behind turn 5 really is available, they could simply do this: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=5753257
It would make turn 4 much more important and there would be three overtaking opportunities: one after a slow, a medium and a fast corner. This would be very interesting, because if there’s a faster car behind he has three different options to overtake on the lap and at least one of them should be good, depending on how much traction he has.
@mads No, everybody complains that DRS is too artificial, so I want to make it more organic.
Where the sun never shines…
Your plot involving drivers secretly switching places reminded me of this comic series, but it seems it’s only well-known in my part of the world.
I would rate it a 9; -1 for the championship being decided by a DRS pass :P

If they really go through with this, I truly hope they’ll lose second in the constructor’s because of it. Shameful.
